Despite of the fact that which age group you belongs to taking care of yourself is very necessary. There is no age to love and pamper yourself and we should never leave a chance to do that. Sleep, wake up, work and repeat this is what most of people are doing as life became so busy that nobody has time to care for themselves.
Self-care is giving the world the best of you, instead of what’s left in you- Katie Reed
Importance of taking care of yourself
Well said by Katie Reed as by taking good care of yourself not only make us fit and happy but also we will be able to give our 100% to the other person.
How to take care of yourself Mentally & Physically
Both mental & physical aspects are important while taking care of yourself. If you are mentally not healthy then taking physical care of yourself is incomplete and vice versa.
Start your day with meditation:
Meditation not only helps in keeping body active physically but also makes our mind very relax and calm. 5 to 10 minutes of meditation everyday helps in relaxing the body and mind and keep away negative thoughts throughout the day. You will feel more positive, energetic & refreshed.
Take Proper Sleep:
On an average a person should take a sleep of approx 8 hours every day. Taking appropriate sleep is very necessary for healthy body and mind. It leads to a stress free day all day long with more active body.
Make Schedule for Whole Day:
Try to make a schedule of your task for the day in a notebook which will make sure that you won’t miss anything and also you will get sufficient time for yourself once you complete the entire set task on time.
Take time to exercise:
This is a very important step in daily routine where we should take out sometime be it 15 minutes to exercise. A healthy body gives birth to happy mind and a little exercise is always good to keep you stress free all day long. If exercise is not something you like then a brisk walk in the morning is more than enough.
Read books of your choice:
Books are always our best friend. Books are a very good way to keep yourself away from social media. Whenever you have time in your hand instead of surfing internet try to read books of your choice. Reading books before sleep helps in better sleep.
Give Time to your Hobbies:
In this busy life we wake up reading tons of e-mails and our whole day gets over doing household work, meetings, clients & appointments. These things are important for earning bread & butter but taking time for your hobbies is very important to get motivated for daily work. Take out an hour in a day, a week or a month but try to do things which you love.
Switch to Healthy Meals:
Adhering to this point is very very difficult when Zomato & Swiggy is giving you such lucrative offers like Flat50% off or Buy1 Get1 on food. But believe me friends eating healthy meal really makes a difference. As we grow older our metabolism starts reducing due to which our body is not able to digest such heavy food easily due to which our health gets disturb & we feel bad. If you are a foodie then try to exercise hard if you eat heavy meals.
Keep yourself away from technology:
The first thing most of the people do in the morning is checking their phones. Use these gadgets when necessary and avoid using them all the time. Harmful rays from phone not only affect our eyes but have some adverse affect on brain as well.
Take time to play:
Playing is a good way to nurture yourself. Take time to play with your children because when we do that we also live our childhood and feel free from all the stress. Playing with your young ones helps in living your childhood again with them and you do things carefree which is really important in life.
Talk to your loved ones:
Talking is a good therapy to keep your mind stress free. If you are tensed try to talk to your family, friends & other trust worthy person around you because sometimes we really want someone to listen to us to make us feel better.
Grooming up session:
If you are a man or a woman grooming up session is required where you relax in a salon while taking a good spa. Maintaining yourself is not wrong and it also helps in giving that extra “oomph” to your personality by giving that confident.
Plan a Holiday:
Holidays are so required to give a different environment from the busy schedule. If you don’t have a big budget then don’t worry you can plan small trips which are budget friendly and relaxing as well.
These are my ways of taking care of myself and I find them really effective. Every person should give time to keep themselves happy by doing the above mentioned things so that we can be happy in life and set examples for others.
After workings in an MNC since ages, I noticed that I am not able to find my real happiness in spite of getting handsome salary every month. Then after baby, when I had no option, I became an accidental blogger and started writing on life issues and emotional traumas people go through in life. I realized that this is what I love to do, and that’s my passion. Like every woman, I also love makeup, shopping, and eating and have a YouTube channel where you can find me showing my hauls, makeup, and much more. Not to forget I love traveling as well and in short in love myself and happy go, lucky person.
Feel free to contact me if you have any life related issues or need any suggestions. Also, I am quiet good in telling which makeup product is good and which you should avoid so I can also help you with that.
