It is common practice for people to find the time to look after others, but how often do you find the time to take care of you? Thinking far past a bubble bath or reading a book, let’s have a look at some of the ways you can make sure you find the time for self-care:
Eating The Right Diet At The Right Time
Many people eat meals while multitasking, which denies them the pure experience of a nourishing meal. Would you feel OK knowing that your loved one was eating their dinner while talking to you on the computer? No. So, give yourself the same respect and allow yourself some time to eat a healthy diet with time.
Research Supplements And Therapies
Sometimes our bodies need extra support from things such as vitamin D through to therapies at an HGH Clinic, people bodies sometimes need a little extra support, even if it is on the short-tem basis.
Recognising Your Achievements
There is great rewards form having a “to-do” list, however, it is also important to make sure you recognize the things you have achieved. At the end of each day write down everything you think went well and you felt productive with. No matter how small, write them down and pat yourself fon the back.
Showing You Are Thankful
It is also good for you to recognise what you have in life. Keeping a journal next to your bed can be brilliant for your mental wellbeing, so also make a note of everything you are thankful for. Even if it’s for the clean sheets you washed that day.
Rewarding Your Inner Child
Think about some of your favourite things as a child. You will probably think about things like drawing on the sidewalks, picking wildflowers, or even buying some sweets from the corner shop. You shouldn’t take away those little enjoyments in life. Think about treating your inner child every now and again to a little gift.
Creating A Zone Just For You
Do you have somewhere that is just for you? Somewhere you can retreat and relax? If you don’t it’s time to think about creating yourself a zone just for you. Most commonly it’s a bedroom or at least your side of a bedroom. Add in some candles, throw pillows, and a nice cosy blanket and build a space that is inviting and warm. This should be somewhere you can go when times are tough and you need some space.
Endorphines naturally occur when you do exercise, therefore, you will feel happier if you get yourself moving. The best way to be successful with this is to choose an exercise that you enjoy and gets your heart pumping. Whether it a nice family bike ride of a morning walk, get yourself out and about.
Remember that practising self-care enables you to put your best self-care forward. Make sure you share these great feelings with others. Do you have any other tips that could help? Please share them in the comments below.
