We all need to take some time out for ourselves and it is especially important during these strange times that we make sure that we all practice the art of self-care. With mental illness on the increase, looking after our own and each other’s mental wellbeing is something that we can all do.
There are lots of things that you can do to make sure you are taking the time for yourself – here are a few things that can help you…
Meditation – This is something that you can practice at home, or out in the woods – there are some great online tools to help you as well as apps if you are new to meditation as it is something that the more you practice it the better you will be.
Massage – As well as being great for helping with relaxation, massage can also boost your immune system, circulation and help with any muscle problems. You can even have people come to you in your place of work, like this mobile massage London based company.
Take a Bath – A bath is a great way to unwind from the day. Candles and relaxing bath oils will make the room feel cosy and soothing – it is perfect for letting your body and mind have some time out from the pressures of the day.
Exercise – This is a great way to get the feel-good hormones going in your brain, and it doesn’t have to be strenuous! Simply walking in the countryside will give you a huge boost to your mental health.
