“SELF-CARE IS SO IMPORTANT. WHEN YOU TAKE TIME TO REPLENISH YOUR SPIRT, IT ALLOWS YOU TO SERVE OTHERS FROM THE OVERFLOW. YOU CANT SERVE FROM AN EMPTY VESSEL.” By Elenour brown
In a busy world, we definitely forget ourselves and run to chase our dreams. The day starts by getting up going to work and coming home tired and feeling sleepy.
Our lifestyle is so hectic that we get less time for going to a parlor or a park.And when Sunday came means only sleeping or the work like paying bills and lots of office work.
When we forget to take care of ourselves, we often find ourselves exhausted, cranky and it becomes hard for us to be there for the people we love. It’s essential to do self-care to continue work efficiently. Because taking care of yourself helps in smooth brain function. 🙂
I know, I personally have a tough time in making self-care a priority in this season of life while juggling a work, taking care of the house, cooking meals. I know its tough to find time for yourself, but where there’s a will there’s a way.
This new year I took a resolution that I really need to make some changes. I know that I’m not the only one who struggles with self-care and wanted to share some of the things. I’ve been doing to help me take better care of myself, and in turn, take better care of my family too!
Self-care ideas for a healthy life:
- Reading a book.: Reading helps in rejuvenating the mind.Reading can make you more empathetic.It really doesn’t matter what book you read, by losing yourself in a thoroughly engrossing book you can escape from the worries and stresses of the everyday world and spend a while exploring the domain of the author’s imagination.
- Going for a walk.: I love the morning walks, the fresh air touching the skin makes me feel so happy.We all know walking is highly beneficial for the body. It is the best cardio exercise. Try to go for at least a morning or evening walk to the nearest park. It helps in relaxing your body. Feeling Energetic In The Morning
- Listen to music when you are alone. : When you listen to tunes that move you, your brain releases dopamine, a chemical involved in both motivation and addiction. Music will make you feel lighter, happier and take you to a different world. Even psychologists suggest, listening music can eradicate depression and stress problems.
- Pamper yourself.: Women don’t forget to take care of yourself. Find some time to maintain your skin youthfulness. A night care routine is a must for working ladies. When we take stress Slowly the wrinkles in our skin increase.And no one likes wrinkles. So it’s important to maintain a healthy skincare routine.
- Decorate your room with rice light or some scented candles.: When you are tired or tensed, a scented candle or rice light glowing in the dark room boost up your mind.

It relaxes your spirits.This method is tried by me and I m so happy to have this small little lights bring a happiness all of sudden in your life.
- Enjoy spending time in bath tub.: when you are alone at home. Definitely, try this! Hmm!!! Ya!!! Laziness… But a long warm bath is an exquisite experience when you feel incredibly fatigued or tired. Also, it is good for skin.
- Try to be on Social Media.: Sometimes spending time on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, this will make you happier. It helps to connect you with the world.I am sure not. Well, I am also a social media addict, but it’s good to prioritize the real world. 🙂
