Importance of Self Care: In these unprecedented times, it can be easy to lose sight of taking care of ourselves. Because of this, it is essential to take time for yourself and do things for you. Doing this will help you maintain a healthy relationship with yourself. The notion that self care is being selfish is one that doesn’t hold any validity. We should all be using this time to properly invest in ourselves. Sticking to a Routine: We tend to neglect ourselves when we are overwhelmed with all the changes happening around us. This can cause us to lose our motivation and any progress we’ve made. When times are unpredictable, having a routine in place will help your daily lives be more manageable. Making a checklist is always a simple way to keep track of your responsibilities. By tackling your checklist one at a time, you will feel accomplished and will help ease your anxiousness. Setting a reminder is also critical. Without the physical aspect of school or work, we sometimes forget about deadlines. Reminders will help you stay on top of those! Additionally, allotting certain times of the day to work and using the remaining time to relax will keep you from overworking yourself. Taking Care of Your Health: Our physical, emotional and mental health have all faced setbacks in these times. Staying physically active is hard but working out with your friends and holding each other accountable is an easy way to stay motivated. If you find yourself spending your days sitting down, make sure to stretch periodically. Emotional and mental health are just as important as physical health. Practicing gratitude in these tough times will help you keep a positive mindset. Journaling is also a great way to express your feelings, release stress and clear your minds. Staying updated with the news can be an anxious and fear filled process nowadays. It is important to stay updated with all that's happening but make sure to read some good news once in a while! Staying positive can be hard but it is something we should all be striving for. Make sure to practice self care to the best of your ability and allow yourself to love and nourish yourself!
