How To Take Better Care of Yourself?

Like with everything, there’s a 360 approach to ‘taking care’ of oneself – because we are multidimensional beings. Remember, it’s all about the balance. We want a self-care routine that covers as many areas, without it being too extensive that it’s not realistic to integrate into our daily lives.

Emotionally

Practice Emotional Hygiene

  • Journal 
  • Communicate your boundaries
  • Choose to let your intrusive thoughts pass
  • Acknowledge & feel your feelings

Physically

  • Sleep well
  • Eat nutritious food
  • Breathe slowly
  • Move & connect with your body often
  • Drink water
  • Listen to your body
  • Take the supplements you might need
  • Laugh

Spiritually

  • Take time to connect with nature
  • Pray, meditate or practice a moment of mindfulness
  • Be generous with another, considering it a random act of kindness
  • Have faith in something (like humanity, the sun always rising, God, the energy of love)

Mentally

  • Do something that brings you pleasure, like watering your plants
  • Read things that inspire you
  • Practice positive self-affirmations
  • Reframe a situation (for example, instead of spiralling into catastrophic thinking)
