Self-care! The influencers are talking about it. The brands are talking about it and even the media is talking about it. But what is self-care? It is anything we do to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical, well-being. While the media and social media might want to convince us that there are only limited ways to take care of ourselves, in reality, there are many. Because self-care comes in different forms. What might work for others might not work for us and vice-versa. We need to find what helps us relax our mind our body.
But if you are new to the concept of self-care, here are some things that you can do to rejuvenate yourself:
Meditate: Meditation reduces stress and anxiety and helps connect a person to their inner self. When the outside world bothers you, take out some time to focus on the world inside you. That’s where you will find peace.
Reflect: Take a break from life now and then to pause and reflect on your journey. Appreciate yourself for the growth you have made and prepare yourself for the growth that is on its way to you.
Recharge: Take a break from the tough tasks. Focus on the easy. Do what makes you either jump out of joy or what put your heart at ease.
Affirm: Negative thoughts get to the best of us. But there’s something that can undo the effect that they have on us and that is affirmation. Say the most positive affirmations about yourself and let go of the negative beliefs and thoughts.
Visualize: Take out some time to visualize your higher self and act like this higher self. Make sure your words and actions are in alignment with this self.
You now know different forms of self-care. Try them all and find what turns out to be magical for you.
