One thing that 2020 has taught all of us is the importance of self-care. No matter who you are or what you do, self-care should be a priority. Ups and downs are the norms of life and through it all, taking care of your mental health is essential to survive.
Here are few ways you can practice self-care:
Journaling your thoughts and emotions is the best way to express what you feel and to reflect back on your self-growth and development. It will bring clarity and will help you understand yourself better.
Remove time for yourself
Amidst all the chaos and the fast life, something as simple as removing time for oneself is taken for granted. It is important to spend time alone in order to get to know ourselves better.
Whilst removing time for yourself, make sure you pamper and love yourself the way you expect others to love you. Order your favorite dish, go for a manicure/pedicure, take a walk in the garden amongst others. It’s necessary to give yourself as much importance as you give to those who are special to you because you should be your favorite person.
Meditation helps in going deeper and understanding your subconscious mind. It will help you be calmer and more patient. It will increase self-awareness and help you be more concentrated and focused. With this being said, hydration is also equally important for a healthy body. Stay hydrated with our stylish Root7 stainless steel bottle.
Time and Stress Management
Don’t overburden yourself with work and stress. Learn to distribute your time in a way that you can balance both your personal and work time. Stressing over things will only make it more complicated. Once you learn time management, stress management will automatically follow.
Everybody is different and unique. Comparing yourself to someone will not just make you doubt and criticize yourself but will also make you hate yourself. These negative factors will hamper your self-care process. You should only compare with yourself as only that will help you grow.
Its high time we stop taking mental health lightly. Its serious and people can go into depression and experience anxiety or worse if not cured early. Having faith in yourself, loving yourself and forgiving yourself are 3 things every individual should practice for a better and a happier life!
