Beauties, let’s face it: how often have you found yourself in the situation where life gets busy, either work or personal lives and suddenly all those selfcare habits start to fall to the wayside. It can be easy to start letting things slide, but you owe it to yourself to make your own wellbeing and selfcare a priority. But selfcare doesn’t always have to be about the big things – those small, everyday habits can also make all the difference.
So today, we thought we’d share with you 5 simple ways you can practise selfcare everyday… something you can easily slip into your daily routine.
Drink more water – particularly when you first wake up! Dehydration can leave you feeling sluggish and not your best so making sure to get your water intake in can really affect how you feel throughout the day. If you’re starting to feel sluggish in the afternoon, reach for a glass of water before a cup of caffeine and see if that helps.
Write some pages – this could even be a little plan for a day or what you want to achieve… but try either starting or ending your day by putting the pen to paper and get some words down. It could help clear your mind and organise your thoughts… perhaps write what you’re grateful for or something you feel went well.
Take 5 minutes to just breathe – this is particularly important on those busier days, to make sure to still check in with yourself. Make sure to prioritise your selfcare, even if it is only 5 minutes where you realign your breaths and take a moment to just… breathe and check in with yourself.
30 minutes of movement – don’t worry : we’re not expecting a full on intense workout every day, we know that’s not always possible. But even if it’s just a lunchtime stroll, make sure to take time to get some movement in your day… your body and mind will thank you!
Get some sleep – it’s true that most people simply don’t get enough sleep, but it’s vital to our health and wellbeing. Assess how your sleep was the night before, if you need to make some adjustments to your routine to maximise the sleep you can get. This could mean working on a sleeping routine to get you in the mindset to sleep quicker, or heading for the pillow half an hour earlier than usual.
