Self-Care Ideas to Practice At Home
1. Write a letter to someone who means a lot to you
Video calls and text messages are fantastic for keeping in touch with family and friends, but a handwritten letter exhibits another type of sentiment. This great therapeutic activity will bring joy to yourself and the recipient. So, why not spare a few minutes and put pen to paper to check in on a loved one or let them know you’re thinking of them?
2. Reflect on your day
Leaving some time for reflection encourages you to recognise your daily highlights. Especially when dealing with struggles, it is important to find one shining positive to lift our spirits. You can add this practice to your nighttime routine and write your thoughts in a journal.
3. Watch the sunrise or sunset
With this form of meditation, you will feel your stress melt and your mind become clearer for a few minutes. Research shows that watching a sunrise or sunset has many psychological effects, such as boosting our well-being and enhancing life satisfaction. Many people find this a romantic and inspirational hobby as it allows them to focus on the earth’s natural beauty.
4. Finish your shower with a blast of cold water
Before jumping out of the shower in the morning, brave washing in cold water for 20-30 seconds. There will be a jolt to your system, which leads to increased levels of alertness and energy and feelings of optimism (with the release of endorphins).
Other tremendous health benefits of cold showers include reducing inflammation and body pain and boosting metabolism.
5. Start a blog
If you would like a creative outlet to share your beliefs, ideas, and passions, then consider starting your own blog. Your words or experience could end up making a difference in someone else’s life. In addition, blogging helps improve your confidence, as well as writing and tech skills, and best of all, you will be embraced into a supportive and kind community.
