Life can get to us all at some point or another and this is where self care is incredibly important. Looking after yourself can have huge benefits to your mental state. When I’m feeling down and things are getting to me, there are a few things I will usually do:
Listen to some music – this is 99% of the time my “go to” when I’m feeling stressed.
Read – I enjoy reading whether it’s a physical book or an ebook.
Workout – sometimes if reading or music alone can’t shake my stress I’ll pop in my headphones and do a quick workout, this usually helps me focus on working out and alleviates my stress.
Have a bath – I always feel a lot better after a long soak and a bit of a pamper.
They may not seem like much but they help me a lot when I feel like I’m struggling.
