Make time for you
You might want to set aside a few minutes or hours each day to do something which makes you feel good and relaxed.
Don’t double book
If someone wants you to see them or do something for them during your self-care time, tell them that you are busy. Because you are busy — looking after yourself!
Learn to switch off
This can be hard, but self-care is the time where you focus only on you. If it’s hard for you, try doing something that diverts your attention, like solving a puzzle or reading a book.
Learn some quick fixes
If you are frazzled and short on time, learn some strategies that can be done in a few minutes. Breathing exercises and stretching are great as they can be done in a few minutes, practically anywhere.
Healthy living matters
Be mindful that you are getting adequate sleep, physical activity, eating a well-balanced diet and keeping a check on your own physical and emotional health requirements.
