Now a days it’s hard to find rest in this busy world. These days many of us use tech at work and in our private lives to tune out, the reality is that screen time will never leave us feeling recharged and rest. Instead, it just makes us feel constantly connected and overloaded with information. Self-care isn’t a luxury but a priority. While it’s easy to lose yourself in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the workaholic culture. This guide serves as a reminder to take a step back and celebrate your hard work – so kick back and enjoy the day to recharge & reset.
- Take time to pen down your thoughts
Your mind is a powerful instrument. Its gears constantly turn, but it can only take so much before it gets overwhelmed. Breaking down the complexity of your thoughts and debunking your repent-up frustrations and uncertainties, can be a therapeutic thought process, and uncovering robot causes will only help you move onwards, and upwards.
- Enjoy quality conversation with the ones that fill your cup
Call on a friend you haven’t seen in a while, or a loved one you see way too often but can’t quite get enough of someone who leaves you with all sorts of positive vibes, even after a simple catch up for a cup of tea or coffee. Try to be in the present with the person with who you are at that moment. When you find yourself thinking about something you need to do, or something that’s already happened, or something that might happen … gently bring yourself back to the moment with your favorite person.
- Make the conscious effort to tend to selfcare
Self-care can take many forms- whether it’s a long, hot bubble bath, revisiting an old hobby, or doing yoga: make time to do what enriches your soul, so you can start fresh again. Try to find your own best ways to really relax. Most millennial’s hobbies are social media accounts to uphold, television series to chain watch, and a whole bunch of dating profiles to swipe through. Find something without screen time that makes you forget the time.
- Tune out the noise & tune in to soothing music
Putting on your favourite tracks can prove to be an instant mood-lifter. Music has shown to increase the oxytocin and serotonin level in your brain, sparking feelings of serenity and reducing anxiety. Serotonin is the key hormone that stabilizes our mood and prevents us from experiencing depression. When we sing most part of our brain is lighting and has shown that blood flows more easily when music is played. It can also reduce heart rate, lower blood pressure. Good for body and mind to recharge & reset.
