Self-Care Ideas to Practice At Home
1. Do a brain dump
Is your mind cluttered with impending tasks? Clear your head and take a few minutes to write them down (no matter how big or small), i.e. create your grocery list, find a present for your friend’s birthday, pay off your credit card, etc. Seeing your chores in a tangible list will provide a little extra encouragement and gives a sense of accomplishment as you tick them off.
2. Take your lunch break
Remember that you are entitled to a lunch break, even when you’re working from home! Avoid replying to messages and participating in meetings. Instead, use the time to indulge in an activity that will raise your spirit and improve your well-being, such as going for a walk or listening to a podcast. It will refresh your mind and enhance productivity once you’re back at work.
3. Discover your love language
Identify your dominant love language and get a better understanding of how you like to give and receive love. Doing so will deepen your relationship and communication with yourself and your loved ones.
Love Nudge provides a fun test which shows how you value the five different love languages.
4. Try a healthy new dish
Make your taste buds dance by trying new food! It could be as simple as using alternative ingredients in your cooking here and there or creating a completely different dish. There are plenty of online and easy-to-follow recipes or you could ask your family or friends for inspiration.
5. Update a corner of your home
Our surroundings have a great impact on our mood and motivation, especially when we are spending hours in the same space. Choose a corner or section in your home that needs a little updating, like your bookshelf, closet, or even, your work desk. This could be organising or adding accessories to the area. Doing this gradually could result in upgrading your home, bit by bit.
