How are you doing these days? I will admit that I have been in a bit of a funk the last week or so. I am sure you can relate, but my emotions are all over the place. One minute I am task-oriented, focusing on the day-to-day and the next I am sitting on the couch with zero motivation. As this is all unchartered teritorry for most of us, we don’t exactly know how to feel and how to deal.
It is during a crisis, that we really need to take care of our physical and mental well-being. Stress builds up in our body and if we let it get the best of us, it can present problems. Have you heard the phrase “Put your own oxygen mask on first before helping others”. It can be harder to take care of others if we are not taking care of ourselves.
Self care is taking care of your physical and mental health through healthy habits. These self care practices can be things we do daily, weekly or on a yearly basis. While, self care can sometimes be glamorized as a “needed” trip to the spa or spending a lot of money on something, at its core, self care is really simple activities.
Some examples of Daily Self Care:
Getting enough sleep
Maintaining close relationships with family and friends
Getting Fresh Air
It is easy, especially these days, to neglect one or more of these daily self care activities. But, over time, skipping out on of these healthy habits can catch up to you.
Personally, I’ve noticed that if I miss out on taking a walk outside or getting fresh air each day, I do not feel as great.
So, if you are in a rut like I am, maybe you need some other self care ideas to do at home! I put together a Printable 30 Day Self Care Calendar of ideas. These are all simple ideas that you can do at home. Best of all, these self care ideas are free!
