This experience was challenging for me. I thought it would be easy to ensure that I take 5 to 30 minutes every day to do something for me. What I realized was I didn’t know myself as much as I thought. The ideas went out, laziness overtook, youtube drew me in. Many obstacles, but I tried, and here’s what I learned.
Journaling is relieving. It’s such a great exercise if you feel so full of thoughts and worries to let them out and also calm your mind. Definitely doing it more frequently when I feel that way.
Dancing, doing sports. I’m in the learning process that I want to feel healthy, not skinny. It’s easier to say than to think, but dancing to music that moves me takes me instantly to a parallel universe.
Many five-minute self-care traits I did was drinking Teekanne’s teas like caramel apple pie or the other different sweet teas. A great alternative if you want something sweet.
Putting a cherry kit cushion on my neck to lower the tension, such relaxation.
I’m not a hot bath girl, for doing an all-around shaving yes, but not for more than 20 minutes. And that’s not worth it, I think. Though I love candles.
Watching a great romantic comedy when I feel down and the red lady visited me.
Not playing Lol when I want some time for myself.
Listening to my audiobook while cleaning is such a self-care in two ways, a clean house and listening to fun things.
Going outside for a walk, especially with my loved one, so we can talk with undivided attention. Love it. Also, when it has rained and you breathe this fresh air.
Turning off my phone. I hate this feeling when I look multiple times at my phone just in case if something new happens. It exhausts me and I thought when you wanna reach me then you call me, and turned all my notifications down, placed it into the office of my spouse. Of course, sometimes I hushed in there to look if someone wrote to me, but it was way less then before.
Talking to someone about my feelings, especially when I feel down to tell them why I feel that way and maybe to do something against it.
I am not a fan of social distancing. I’m an introvert I don’t like crowds, I avoid talking to strange people, but I realized I need someone to talk to.
That was my experience with this challenge and I hope you liked this series. If you want more about self-care or would love other content, just comment below or do my survey on my homepage. What about you, have you found out something unusual about yourself? Have you tried it as well?
