Practising Self-Care

We’re sure you’ve heard that quote – “What if we recharged ourselves as often as we did our phones?” Taking self-care time is imperative to a healthy lifestyle. Don’t see “me” time as a selfish pursuit, see it as time to embrace balance and opportunity. Recharging and re-centering yourself is the best way to stay inspired and energized. Here are our 5 top tips:

Prioritise yourself

Schedule some “me” time in your diary and stick to it. It could just be 5 minutes of reading, meditating, journaling or sitting in the sun.

Prioritise your day

Each evening, identify the top 3 things you want to achieve the next day. Breaking your to-do list down into small, achievable steps will ensure you see progress.

Prioritise your body

Ensure your body is moving, keeping fit and healthy. Exercise, fuelling up with nutritious foods and getting enough sleep are important.

Unplug yourself

Just for an hour, try switching everything to airplane mode and free yourself from emails and the negativity created from scrolling through overly-filtered Instagram lives.

Reward yourself

It’s important not to be too harsh on yourself and treat yourself when you’ve accomplished certain milestones. Whether it’s an indulgent beauty routine or making sure that you exercise each day, the better you feel about yourself, the better you’ll make those around you feel. Maybe a massage or a manicure?
