So I told you about how last week was pretty rough. Between me not realizing that camp was delayed for a week to working from home, last week was tough. So I looked at what I did that worked and what didn’t work and came up with a few things we all can do to self care our week:
1. Drink plenty of water: today in Philly it will be almost 100 degrees no need in not taking care of your health so drink up!
2. Take a break: go outside that’s the one saving grace that made the difference last week. Being outside helps your mood
3. Go offline: I love social media but take a break even if it’s for an hour
4: Mind your business: this should be done often but the amount of negativity that we take on always stirring the pot of someone else’s lives can be better used in focusing on ways to improve ours.
5: Work out: you will lose some unwanted pounds as well as relieve stress
6: Get some sleep: watching television is great but sitting up every night while it watches you is not. Going to bed earlier a few nights a week does amazing things for your morning
7: Eat Right: overeating or even under eating is a problem. Make sure you also eat more fruits and vegetables your body will thank you
8: Read: take a magazine with you or a book and when you have down time while you’re taking that social media break, read!
9: Favorite Drink: sometimes having your favorite drink will make a great difference. Now that it’s hot Pintrest some Summer drinks and enjoy something cold and refreshing
10: Plan-setting brings into place will not make your week magical but it can cut down on a lot of stress of having to find things
Whatever you do make sure that you find little things that make your day and week that much better. You can do a thousand one things such as lighting candles, going to a favorite spot, etc
Choose to set the bar high on making sure you aren’t simply getting through the week but that you spend some time being good to yourself.
Have a great Monday and a great week!!
