This is how you do self-care: 12 quick tips

Do you take care of yourself? Put yourself first and ensure that you take all necessary steps to take care of your body and mind. Sounds simple, right? Maybe for some. Because, there are many people who actually do not take care of themselves (so well).

If you do not do self-care, this can affect your entire life. The balance between work and private life is lost, your eating habits are not healthy, you may be stressed or overwhelmed, you arrive and doubt any decision you make. That way you will never be in balance and you will most likely feel unhappy!

To take care of yourself you don’t have to turn your whole life upside down. Far from! Learning a few simple new habits is the key to success. Small changes, big results.

Self-care tips to add to your daily routine:

  1. Sleep: ensure sufficient sleep and try to create regularity in your sleep rhythm. Go to bed at the same time every day and get up at the same time every day.
  2. Exercise: daily exercise, moderately intensive, for about 30-60 minutes provides more energy and a healthier body. Cleaning, stretching or climbing stairs: everything counts!
  3. Outside: try to go outside every day. Only a few minutes makes a difference already.
  4. Breathing: do you feel stressed or anxious? Then consciously breathe in and out a few times. This way your entire body relaxes.
  5. Take breaks: a break from your computer, telephone, social media, anything you can “turn off” for a moment.
  6. Music: turn on your favorite song. Make a playlist for when you feel happy, sad, angry or hurt.
  7. Dance: “Dance like nobody’s watching”, it is fun, gives you energy and contributes to positive emotions. Turn up your volume and dance!
  8. Pay attention to your body: which dishes / snacks make you feel good? What makes you feel slow? What gives you energy and what makes you tired? Study your habits, and note what works and what doesn’t.
  9. Hydrate sufficiently: 2 liters of water are recommended per day. Add some lemon or cucumber for an extra flavor!
  10. Take a rest from visual stimuli: you record so much visual stimulation and information throughout the day, give your eyes a rest. Resting your eyes for 5 minutes feels great, give it a try.
  11. Freshen up: shower or simply wash your face or hands. It refreshes you and gives you energy.
  12. Give yourself the best: don’t feel guilty when you take time to look after yourself. You are important and you can treat yourself that way!

Try to include these quick tips in your daily routine. Making it part of your daily life ensures the best results. This way you become your best self!
