3 Self-Care Tips To Improve Your Day





Taking care of yourself is very important. I like to encourage people reading my blog posts to be more mindful and treat themselves right. You need to do little things now and then to make you feel happier, and reduce your stress. So, here are a few self-care tips that are guaranteed to improve your day:

Take Some Time To Meditate
It’s impossible to take care of yourself when you aren't taking care of your mental health. It’s great that we’re seeing more people speak out about mental health issues in the mainstream media these days. It’s slowly but surely eating away at the stigma, which is a wonderful thing. It seems like lot of us are always anxious or nervous about things in our life, and it eats away at us. I find one of the best things you can do is to meditate every day. Take a few minutes out of your morning and evening routine to just breathe, relax, and feel at peace. It’s a really good way of quickly lowering your heart rate, getting rid of panicky feelings, and taking care of your mind.

Go On A Netflix Binging Session
Sometimes, you just need some time to yourself. You just want to lie under your duvet and waste away the hours doing very little. We all need a day like this from time to time, I like to think of it as you charging your internal batteries. Of course, lying in bed doing nothing isn’t the best idea as it can lead to feelings of depression. Instead, you should have a little Netflix binging session. Choose a new series, and spend a few hours watching it on a weekend or Friday night. Now, I have two key tips when it comes to a good Netflix binging sesh. First, make sure you have good internet as there’s nothing worse than buffering your stream! There’s so much detailed information out there about different internet services, and I find that ones without a data limit are the best for streaming. Secondly, make sure you don’t overdo it with your snacks. A sugar high will always result in a sugar low, which makes you feel bad! So, cool it on the sweets and chips & just focus on relaxing.

Take Part In A Social Media Cleanse
This is one of my favorite ways of taking care of yourself and making your day better. The idea is that you go on all your social media accounts, and cleanse them of any negativity. If there are people on there that you don’t like - unfollow them. Let’s face it, we all scroll down our feeds and see some people you follow and just get angry because you don’t like the things they post. They could be exes, people from your school days that are constantly moaning or complaining about things, etc. It will brighten your day considerably when you remove negativity from your social channels, trust me. Plus, if you have a blog like me, or maybe run a popular social media account, you get a few haters from time to time. Block anyone that makes negative comments, not because you can’t deal with them, but because you have no time for negativity!

Try these self-care tips, and I bet you'll feel a lot better in a short space of time.
