When thinking of self-care, most people think of bath bombs, spa time, and relaxing vacations. However, self-care can come in the form of anything that helps you release stress. Whether it is taking time to let all of your emotions out or journaling. We are going to cover a few self-care tips for the busy person.
1.Let it out. It is okay to cry, many people can release stress just by crying it out.
2. Meditate. Download a meditation app on your phone, or search for meditation videos on Youtube. Meditating can be an hour or ten minutes and it is guaranteed to relieve built up stress and emotions.
3. Find what makes you happy. Find something that can keep your mind clear of your situation. Listen to your favorite music, read a new book, or take up a new hobby. Refocusing your mind on something can help keep you upbeat and positive.
4. Journaling. Many people who keep a journal report that it is a stress reliever. If you are not able to write everyday, try writing an entry one a week a week for a month, then decide if it is something you feel works for you.
Keep on, keeping on.
