Self-Care

How good is the feeling when we smile to ourselves and just know we’re doing ok? Isn’t that a moment of sigh? We’re sure it is. This feeling doesn’t come walking to us by itself.  Each of us practice a collection of daily activities to place ourselves in a happier state of mind.

These practices and attitude that ward off dips in our mood and help us maintain health and wellbeing without stressing about the little things around us, is exactly what self-care is! But let’s be clear, practicing self-care is incorporating healthy and useful mood enhancers into your daily routine. It might be difficult to find the right pick-me-up, but they surely can be a huge win once conquered. On the days when your mood, energy, and motivation aren’t up to par, we’ve compiled a list of a few self-care ideas that you can dive into! 

 

Choose Nourishing Food

One of the most important aspects of self-care is eating a balanced diet. What we eat has a significant impact on our energy levels, emotions, and ability to cope with stress and life changes. Write down your favourite meals, the ones you eat on a weekly basis. Preparing, cooking and eating are forms of self-care and self-love. Make healthy modifications to your present food habits to live a happy life! You could sip on a healthy smoothie or eat a few pieces of dark chocolate to lift up your mood.

 

Get Your Body Moving

Another way to make yourself smile is to move more! One of the most effective strategies to increase concentration, motivation, memory, and mood is to exercise. If you enjoy a full-fledged 15 minutes HIIT workout, go for it. But let’s all agree, it’s not always easy to convince yourself to exercise. Which is why, you could opt for other forms of physical movement like a simple walk on your terrace or a quick dance in your bedroom. It’s impossible to not to enjoy these favourable paths to self-care. Get started with one, and you’ll know it for yourself!

 

Prioritize Good Sleep

Good quality sleep seems to be the most underrated activity for self-care. Most of us struggle to commit to our beauty sleep because of increased work, late night outings, technological advancements, social pressures, and many more distractions that keep us up than what is required. However, sleeping for a good 7-8 hours at night is critical for the brain and the body. It also enhances your mood and mental health. After all, it’s a feel-good activity. Just you and yourself with a cozy bed and a warm blanket! After all, who doesn’t take a power nap curled up on a couch anyways?

 

Learn Something New

Learning keeps your mind engaged and active. To learn something new always feels like an accomplishment. It makes you feel good about yourself and your knowledge. It aids in gaining new and informed insights on the world around you. Learning allows you to expand your horizons and train your brain to deal with a variety of obstacles. All of these elements work together to keep you healthy. You could probably learn a new language simply by watching a non-dubbed Korean drama or Spanish show.

 

Do What Makes You Happy

There are quite a few things that we can do to boost our good vibes. Make a list of all the things that you love to do and start to check marks on each! It could be anything like reading, drawing, journaling, listening to upbeat music, singing, playing with a puppy, heading for a spa, dancing, catching up with friends and family, grabbing some coffee, watching your favourite shows and just anything random. Know yourself better and as said, the comedic mantra – “treat yo’ self” sums it all. For us, it’s some masking, netflix and quick getaways!
