Hello my lovelies,

During the last few months it felt like everyone was talking about self-care. It was all over social media, lots of blogs were being written and a new life coach seemed appear every week. Self-care may have been a trend but in today’s climate with self-isolation, it’s exactly what we need!

 Self-care is exactly what it says: taking care of yourself. It can be any activity that is solely for the purpose of your physical or mental well-being.

These activities may be different to everyone, as it’s according to what you enjoy and find peace in. This can be reading a book, meditating, doing a beauty regime or exercising. Basically anything that nourishes your mind and/or body is self-care.

 So why do we need to take care of ourselves?

Well, in everyday life we get so caught up with work, kids, running errands, and basically keeping up. In the current climate, although we may not be so busy as we usually would be, we are constantly at home with the whole family; feeding them, perhaps home-schooling, and worrying in general about food supplies and watching the news. To stay sane in this moment it’s important to have a break or distraction from it all – and that’s where self-care comes in.

 

How to fit self-care in Self-Isloation

 There are many things you can do at home for your self-care. I would recommend to do something every day, and depending on how much time you have, you can select one or more of the below activities:  

 Have a bubble bath with candles and calming music

  • Do a makeup makeover!
  • Make yourself a warm drink
  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • Exercise
  • Dancing
  • Put on a face mask
  • If you have a garden, walk around the garden
  • Watch your favourite movie
  • Call a loved one
  • Do some gardening
  • Read a book
  • Listen to music
  • Sketch, draw or paint
  • Give yourself a manicure or pedicure
  • Bake
  • Take a nap
  • Cook something new

Self-care shouldn’t stop when the self-isolation stops either. Incorporating these simple activities into your life can slowly help you to overcome any mental health problems and eventually change your outlook to life. And don’t stop at yourself; encourage your partner, children and family members to also do some self-care activity. After all, we can all do with some physical and mental well-being
