The month of February is coming to an end. This past month many of us have focused on the theme of love. First, it is romantic love. Then, there is the love of family and friends. Now, it is time to think about self-love and self-care.
First of all, let us start from the home. Beginning the day with some deep breathing and simple stretches can help start the road to better self-care. If you are able to squeeze in some earlier wake-up times, yoga and meditation can really keep your mind at ease.
Enjoying a nice and nutritious breakfast is a wonderful way to nourish the body and mind. You can also pack up some to go in a reusable lunch bag or container to take to work. This can help save some time and money too!
Self-care At Work
Secondly, let us focus on your work environment. Our work place is where most of us spend a lot of time and energy. It is also a place that we tend to forget about self-care.
There are a few ways you can be more mindful of your surroundings. Hence, it is time to focus on your boundaries and voice it out. Letting your colleagues and especially your supervisors know your limitations can help reduce future distress.
Conflict management skills can greatly help support your endeavours to better take care of your emotional state. Perhaps borrowing some books from your local library or if you can, sign up for some workshops on this topic!
Give Yourself a Hug
In conclusion, the journey of self-care is a lifelong process. Subscribe to our blog to see how we can continue to love ourselves and our environment!
