To look after others, you must look after yourself. Consider these simple self-care practices:
Do something you love
Find some time (even if it’s only 10 minutes) every day to do something that you love.
Take a lunch break
It is not good for you to shove your lunch down your throat at your desk in a bid to be more productive.
Your favorite people
Surround yourself with people (or animals) you love and who love you in return.
Relax in the bath
Take a timeout to take the occasional relaxing bath. It’s okay to have ‘me time’.
Get enough sleep
Give yourself an early night or a late lie-in every now and then as a special treat.
Just say no
Don’t always take on unnecessary tasks that will cause you additional stress. Say no if you need to.
Exercise benefits the body and mind, so it’s a good self-care practice.
Treat yourself to your favorite food items occasionally – everything in moderation!
Seize the moment
Don’t wait for a special occasion to use the fancy dinnerware. Any day can be a special occasion if you want it to.
