Practicing self-care does not require a lot of time and effort. It is about understanding what works for you. Some might prefer yoga, while others prefer going for a hike. The idea basically is indulging in those things that help you recuperate and maintain the inner balance and peace you need on your inside.
It is encouraged that you have a list of your favorite activities that help you improve your mood, reduce stress, and help you function optimally. Self-care is self-preservation. It helps boost your productivity, which in turn boosts your self-confidence.
Rather than react rashly on a stressful day, you could quickly go through your list of self-care activities and pick one that will help you reduce your stress at that moment, and ultimately help you stay calm amid the stress. Doing this results in you successfully practicing self-control during an uncontrollable situation.
How to Practice Self-Care
- Practice routine exercise.
- Practice healthy eating habits.
- Surround yourself with healthy relationships.
- Always ensure you have enough time to rest daily.
- Create time to indulge in activities that make you happy.
- Understand how your body works and plan your activities around it in order to boost productivity.
- Say positive words to yourself in an unpalatable situation. This will boost your self-worth.
Amy Leigh Mercree said: “When we self-regulate well, we are better able to control the trajectory of our emotional lives and resulting actions based on our values and sense of purpose.”
So, practicing self-care is self-regulating your body and mind so that you can be the very best version of yourself in life. No one can do it for you; you have to rise and say no to losing your inner balance in the face of any challenging situation.
