Self Care Doodles
It’s hard to say what counts as a self-care doodle, and for this post, I just thought of different self-care activities and what kind of doodles can symbolize them.
Let’s dive in and start doodling!
How To Doodle A Microphone
I often find that music can help you cheer up and generally set a better mood. Especially if you don’t just listen to it, but do a dance party or even sing.
So this doodle definitely came to mind for this post.
Whether it’s a coffee, tea, or a smoothie, a comfy drink can definitely help you with your mood.
There are already many tutorials on how to doodle coffee on this blog, so this time, it’s just a fun pink drink.
I don’t know about you, but for me creating Bullet Journal pages is definitely a type of self-care.
It helps to unplug and be with yourself, apart from actually the usefulness of creating self-care-related pages.
How To Doodle Candle
I think candles are the ultimate symbols of self-care, and I must say I love all the different types of candles and scents out there.
You can actually play around with a label here and add whatever symbolizes your favorite scents.
Mobile Phone Doodle
When thinking about self-care, I always remember how much spending time with people can be helpful for my mental health.
Sometimes just talking to a friend can help you get over the hardest of times. So, of course, this doodle had to be included in this list.
One of my favorite ways to practice self-care is reading. Doesn’t it sound like simply the best time to sit in your favorite chair with a good book and a delicious hot beverage?
How To Doodle Paints
Being creative is definitely a fun way to do some self-care and have time for yourself and your needs.
Painting, drawing, or just doodling can be almost a meditative activity, so of course, I had to include something that would represent it.
How To Doodle Dumbells
Any type of physical activity is definitely amazing for self-care, so, of course, I had to include these doodles here.
Dumbells are super easy to doodle, and you can actually play around with colors; they don’t have to be gray like these.
I think you’ll agree that adding just a little splash of makeup can help you feel so much better, and when you feel better, you do better!
Out of all makeup out there, I chose lipstick to doodle since it’s very simple, and you can definitely get a big change in your appearance just from lipstick.
Playing games can definitely be a very calming and pleasant activity. The key here is to use it for self-care and not as a way to avoid doing the work.
Either way, I think joystick can be a wonderful doodle addition to this lineup, and you can use it on many pages, not only for self-care spreads.
How To Doodle Popcorn
Watching a good movie can help you feel better, I’m sure you can come up with the comfort movie you always turn on to get the feels.
That’s why popcorn is on the list of these doodles. After all, who watches movies without a delicious snack?

Best Doodling Supplies
If you decide to recreate these, you might need a few things. Of course, you can use anything you already have to doodle.
But if you’re looking for recommendations, this is what I love:
- Pilot Dr. Grip Pencil – pencil first is the best solution to ensure your doodles look great. This pencil is probably the most comfortable one I’ve ever had!
- Sakura Foam Eraser – the best eraser there, and it won’t streak your lines or leave any color residue.
- Sakura Pigma Micron – a good fineliner is your best friend when it comes to doodling. Plus, this set has pens with different nib sizes which will allow you to add variety to your doodles.
- Zebra Mildliners – if you want to add color to your journal, these pens are absolutely perfect. I adore their colors, and they have a marker tip to help you with more detailed work.
