Here’s a little reminder that
Since I’m doing this new Reset Your Life Series, I thought it would be a good idea to take you with me on a self-care date. I’m going to talk about the things I do when I feel overwhelmed, stressed or when I just need a moment for myself.
Write things down
The first thing I like to do is to write down everything that’s on my mind. I’m not able to relax if I keep thinking about all the things I still need to do. When it’s on paper, I can let go of it. Sometimes making a schedule helps too, so I can overview all my tasks and easily see I can plan some me-time. I write whatever I want to write, not only to do’s but everything that’s on my mind!
One of the things I like to do when I feel cluttered is to tidy up. A messy room can make me feel cluttered, overwhelmed and stressed too. So if I feel the need to organize, clean or throw things away, I will make some time for that. After this, I always feel better! A clear space is a clear mind.
Take a bath or shower
Taking a hot bath or shower always makes me feel better. My muscles are tight with tension when I’m stressed but when I’m taking a hot bath or shower, I feel the tension go away. If I don’t have enough time to take a bath, I sometimes go sit down in the shower to take a couple of minutes and try to relax.
Home Spa Day
This is one of my favorite things to do! I love doing a home spa day. Normally I’m putting on a face mask, a hair mask, I use some exfoliating scrub, paint my nails, put on some nice body cream etc. I just take all the time in the world to treat myself!
I have to admit that when I’m stressed out I normally don’t take the time to read, but I definitely should. Reading always makes me relax and makes me forget about my own life for a while. I love being in another world and getting to know the characters of a book. It makes me calm and that’s exactly what I need when I’m stressed, overwhelmed or tired.
These are my favorite routines but there are way more things which could help you! Think about exercise, meditate, create, etc. If you haven’t found your perfect way to relax, make sure you’re going to try things out until you find what fits you the best! Self care is really important so please make sure to make time for that.
Hope to see you next time loves,
