Babe, newsflash, there is no better time for self-care than during this pandemic. These lockdowns and social distancing measures make you feel relatively away from society. This is why it is more important than ever to take care of yourself. More than making sure your body stays healthy, you can’t disregard your mental health. Here are four simple ways to give yourself some self-loving:
Yes dear, you are told to practice social distancing; but that doesn’t mean you should completely disconnect! Staying in touch with friends and family gives you the peace of mind that you are not alone in this depressing time. The internet is an amazing tool to connect with people (even meeting online friends from virtual communities we are part of). Say yes to connections, queen!
Emotions can get overwhelming. Sometimes, you can’t explain things to other people when you don’t even understand what you’re feeling. Getting a notebook and a pen to process things and think it through helps clear the mind. Writing about what you feel at the moment is therapeutic as it is like confiding to a friend without thinking about being judged or misunderstood. Try writing about your day and look back to see how life becomes better every single day. Looking for journal? Check out here.
Spoil yourself the way a queen deserves to be spoiled! You go the extra mile for people you love, it’s about time to go extra for yourself. Do what makes you happy. Whether that is dropping that bath bomb and soaking your beautiful body in aromatic scent or reading your favorite book while sipping wine, do whatever it takes to make you feel like the queen that you are.
It’s so easy to slack off your fitness routine because, “people won’t see me for a couple of months anyway”. Raise your hand if you’re guilty of this. Now raise your other hand and do some jumping jacks. Babe, you must keep moving! Sticking to your fitness routine gives a certain feeling of normalcy and could even help you boost your immune system. Pro tip to make sure your program and schedule is in check? Invest in a good coach who can not only hold you accountable but inspire you on days you just want to binge-watch Netflix while munching on those chips.
“Gonna love myself, no, I don't need anybody else (I love me)”. Babe, you better sing and dance to this song of Hailee Steinfield as you realize that in this pandemic, no one can take care of you better than yourself. Put on your favorite playlist and start doing the four simple ways to love yourself amidst this dark season.
