Give your sims the ultimate self-care day (or night!) with the AM and PM Traditions mod from SimwithShan!

AM and PM Traditions

Self-care is different for everyone, and there’s no one-size-fits-all system for it. Your sims are the same way. Different personalities, traits, likes & dislikes can all affect what’s relaxing to them. With AM and PM Traditions you can make bespoke self-care routines for your sims to celebrate once a month, once a week, or even every day!

The AM And PM Traditions Mod

The AM and PM Traditions mod is a series of new holiday traditions focused on self-care and daily routine activities. Working with the in-game calendar system, you can set holidays where the traditions are focused on these things and you can make them happen as often as you’d like:

  • Bathe: Have a simple soak or a luxurious bath with all the trimmings; whatever fits your sims’ vibes.
  • Brush Teeth: Sims don’t typically make teeth-brushing a priority (luckily cavities don’t seem to exist in their universe) but it’s a quick and easy way to make them feel more confident and clean.
  • Coffee and Tea: Start the day with a hot cup ‘o Joe or wind down in the evening with a relaxing cup of tea.
  • Journaling: (Requires Parenthood) Take some time to reflect on the day and record those thoughts and feelings that don’t belong on Social Bunny.
  • Apply Makeup: (Requires Vintage Glamour) Get dolled-up for a special event or play around with new looks just for fun!
  • Remove Makeup: (Requires Vintage Glamour) A makeup wearer’s least favorite thing, it’s good to clean off your sim’s face after a long day.
  • Pack Lunch: (Requires Parenthood) Pack up those tasty leftovers for tomorrow or get lunches prepared for your loved ones before a busy day.
  • Shave: If your sim is the type that needs to shave their facial and/or body hair, this tradition will serve as the perfect reminder.
  • Shower: If baths aren’t your thing, a shower will do the trick! It’s the best place to practice your singing and rehash that embarrassing moment you had back in the 3rd grade.
  • Skincare: (Requires Spa Day) Toss on a relaxing face mask and take a moment to sit and just be, while your skin soaks up those beneficial nutrients.
  • Words of Affirmation: Everyone can use a bit of self-cheering once in a while. Chose the “Psych Self Up” option from any mirror and puff up that chest!

Using The Traditions


Since the elements of this mod are coded as holiday traditions, you will need to create a “holiday” on your sims’ calendar to make them viable. The idea is to make this a daily holiday to maintain your sims’ routines. That might not be feasible for every player, especially with how holidays can take over your sims’ free time and ability to enjoy other Events, but you can still get great use out of the mod!

Use AM and PM traditions to make special self-care holidays where sims can take the entire day to focus on their physical & mental well-being. Or, combine AM and PM traditions from the mod with vanilla traditions to make new bespoke holidays, like the “Get Glamorous” holiday I created in the image above. Mix them up with other modded traditions for even more possibilities!

In Conclusion

Most of us could use an excuse to take more time for ourselves, and a self-care themed holiday is a great way to do it! Encourage your sims to practice healthful habits to make them look and feel better, or use these new traditions as part of other holidays you craft for them. What kind of self-care habits do you enjoy doing? Let us know in the comments! As for me, I’m off to take a nice relaxing bath.

Happy simming!
