mindfulness exercises and self are strategies cards

Practicing regular self-care is not easy. 

Daily Self Care Cards are the practical, evidence-based toolkit you need to make that practice a reality. 

With a mix of 5-minute mindfulness exercises and self-care strategies, they’re easy to incorporate into your everyday life. 

After all, when was the last time you prioritised your own self-care?

  • You’re so busy in your day-to-day routine that all too often you forget to make time for yourself. 
  • You’re overwhelmed. Yet you say yes when you should have said no. 
  • You hide behind a confident smile, because deep down you don’t believe you deserve success. 
  • You’re so self-critical, and afraid of what others think of you, you’ve let it stop you going after your dreams.
  • You’ve forgotten what it’s like to not feel stressed and anxious.  
  • And what’s worse, every day feels this way. 

The truth is, it’s hard to find the time and motivation for self-care, when deep down you don’t believe you’re worth it.

You are worth it.

It’s not easy to get out of that cycle.

  • You need support to develop a daily self-care practice and put you back at the top of your to-do list. 
  • You need strategies that are easily repeatable, and you can do from anywhere (without anyone knowing) to help you build coping skills to manage your stress and anxiety. 
  • You need proven techniques to build your confidence, one small step at a time, so you can start achieving those almost-forgotten-goals and begin enjoying life again. 

You deserve more.

In my time as a mental health counsellor, social worker and life coach, I’ve helped many people learn the strategies to improve their health and wellbeing – and I’ve seen those same people return to their bad habits without ongoing guidance and support. 

I’ve been there too. That’s why I’ve developed the Daily Self Care Cards.

They’ll help you build a healthy practice of self-love and awareness to start your journey towards a happier and healthier you

It's time to start loving yourself again


Combined with relatable illustrations, this deck features gentle tips, exercises, affirmations and questions, inviting you to pause and reflect. 

When used regularly, the cards encourage greater self-awareness, self-compassion, and introduce mindfulness as a strategy to cope with stress, anxiety, and self-doubt. Over time, you’ll see a shift from negative, self-critical inner voice to be more positive, accepting and hopeful.

Select a new card for each day of the month, select and use them to suit your situation, or in any way that feels right to you. 

Designed with proven, repeatable exercises, they won’t just help you develop solid self-care strategies, they’ll help you cement them, so they become second nature when things get tough.




  Short, repeatable, self-love activities and reminders to practice positive self-talk and compassion. Over time, this helps build your confidence and sets you up for success.



    Creative mindfulness exercises that help you improve focus and develop coping skills to deal with overwhelm. See the positive results with daily practice.



     Learn how to identify your triggers and body’s response to stress and emotional overload. Use grounding and mindfulness techniques to learn skills you can use every day.



  Develop a healthy meditation routine, with mindful observation activities to help calm the mind. Each exercise teaches you how focus on the here and now, while acknowledging, but not focusing on, the causes of your anxiety.



  Learn how to identify and express your emotions. The creative drawing exercises, and journaling prompts are designed to encourage reflection. Develop ways of managing your emotions, through walking meditation, and reminders for self-compassion. 



  Increase your sense of self-worth by reflecting on, and celebrating your strengths and achievements. Practice positive self-talk and compassion every day, with cards designed to help you look after your mental health. 



  Thought-provoking questions, reminders and tips to help you see yourself in a new way. Take the 30 day self-love challenge and establish a routine of positive self-reflection that encourages a greater self-awareness and growth mindset.



  Gentle, judgement-free reminders and daily checklists that teach you what self-care looks like, and strategies on how to apply them to your everyday life – even when you’re feeling your worst. There’s no shame in making time to look after yourself.



  Vision and goal setting prompts to help you plan and take action. 

Stay motivated with positive affirmations, exercises that encourage you to celebrate your successes and work to your strengths. Learn how to set yourself up for success now and in the future.


  “I have found InHeart Counselling's cards to be really inspiring and they've had a positive impact on my mental health. I love how the cards are so clearly presented, making the ideas so easy to digest. 

This pack covers so many important subjects, including mindfulness and self care. My favourites are the 'Self care Checklist' and 'Vision & Goal Setting' which have changed the way I think about myself and envisage the future. 

The concepts are illustrated in a way that is memorable and motivating. Some of the ideas are things that I've learnt before, but they haven't "stuck" in my mind until using this deck of cards. 

Thanks for creating these beautiful cards - they've been really helpful.”

These cards are the result of over 20 years’ experience working with clients who’ve experienced the same problems you have. 

But more importantly, they come from a fellow human who’s also struggled with her own mental health challenges. 

I know what it feels like to have intrusive thoughts invading your mind at 3am. I know what it’s like to put on the mask – the smile that allows you to get through your day without revealing your pain.

As a counsellor, I’m committed to supporting you on your journey. I’ve taken the time to listen and have designed these self-care strategies and mindfulness exercises based on your challenges and my experience as a:

  • Qualified Counsellor and Life Coach (12+ years)
  • Therapeutic Social Worker - with a Certificate in Mental Health (20 years) 
  • Teacher (Lead Facilitator), for the Diploma in Life Coaching (5 years)
  • International Motivational Speaker in Australia, New Zealand and the United States 
  • Nutritionist for (5 years), and
  • Personal Trainer (12 years)


  • looking for an evidence-based toolkit that has been proven to make a difference in people’s lives.
  • wanting simple activities and mindfulness exercises so you can start making change in your own time, or with the help of a counsellor.
  • looking for creative exercises, that you can take with you anywhere and use in a way that’s most comfortable, and safe, for you.
  • wanting to make positive changes to your mental health and physical wellbeing.
  •  looking for strategies that will help you make small, regular gains without you feeling overwhelmed.
  • want a toolkit that you can refer to as often as you need, to help you develop coping strategies that will become second nature over time.
  •  looking for an open-minded, flexible way to learn and practice skills for self-care and mindfulness in everyday life.


  “These cards have provided helpful tools to improve my mental health. I am able to pull a random one each day to keep me on track or to seek out a specific activity to help me deal with moments of difficulty. 

Knowing they are there, and I can fall back on them anytime is a great comfort. Through completing each activity, I have also been able to draw up my own wellness plan which is tailored to me and helps me manage hard days in depression. 

  I would recommend these cards for anyone who wants to better understand and love themselves for who they are. Thank you Astarea and InHeart for bringing these tools to my fingertips.”
