In these uncertain times, taking time to look after your physical and mental health is more important than ever. Managing work-life balance from home, or constantly keeping track of new restrictions can be absolutely exhausting. So dedicating a small amount of time each day to self-care is a necessity.
It’s important to understand that self-care is completely personal. What may be relaxing for someone, could be stressful for another. It might take a bit of trial and error to figure out what really makes you feel good. So with that said, I thought I’d share a few ideas to help you on your way.
Like many, I have been trying my best to find some positives during this challenging time. We are all battling with uncertainty and have no idea how long the apocalyptic state will last. As someone who has struggled with anxiety for years, one of my coping mechanisms has always been to focus on what I can control, rather than what I can’t. And this has forced me to think about things I would like to turn my attention to during this turbulent time.
As as self-professed ‘busy bee’, I can often neglect self-care and let the ‘me time’ sink towards the bottom of my priorities list. So I’ve used this time to reignite those feel good rituals and I thought I’d share a few of my favourites with you.
