List of my favorite self-care ideas

Self confidence is extremely imortant in this 2019 world full of speed and stress. Earlier we mentioned that snoozing your alarm for an extra 10 minutes sleep every day might seem like a harmless trait, but if you tally up the amount of time that you waste over a year, it becomes clear how damaging this can be for your productivity. But you haven’t even read the worst part yet. It turns out that those extra minutes you spend in bed whilst you’re snoozing your alarm are actually harmful to your sleep cycles. So, snoozing your alarm every day before you wake up really does more harm than good.

Perhaps the most important element of a productive morning is your routine. Nearly every productivity expert recommends a morning routine, although each one is just a bit different! It isn’t so much about what is in your morning routine, just that you have one. According to Claire Diaz Ortiz, productivity expert and author of Design Your Day, the best thing you can do to be productive is to create your ideal morning routine. She explains that how you start your day anchors you and ensures you stay focused on what is most important. You must master a consistent morning routine to achieve your highest level of productivity!

If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride and will encourage you to do another task. And then another, and then another. And by the end of the day, that one task completed will turn into many tasks completed. Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that little things in life matter. If you can’t do the little things right, you’ll never be able to do the big things right. And if, by chance, you’ll have a miserable day, you will come home to a bed that is made. That you made. Read more details on Productivity.

Stop waiting – dress your best right now. This one is so important! Whether it’s losing weight, moving, graduating or something else: Your life is not on hold just because you haven’t achieved all of your goals yet! Never wait until some arbitrary point in the future to embrace your style and dress exactly how you want to dress. Separate your body hang-ups from your style. Don’t allow body hang-ups to keep you from embracing your personal style. Because regardless of whether they are valid (probably not), they are beside the point. Being mega beautiful is not a pre-requisite to having great style, plus dressing in tune with your own personal style will improve your overall confidence and thereby also how you feel about your appearance.

Nature has unbelievable healing powers when it comes to both our physical, as well as mental health. So, what better way to implement and practice mindfulness in your home, than by filling your interior with all sorts of plants? The beauty and diversity of houseplants can evoke the feelings of peace and serenity, which is definitely something we all need in our living environments.

Most of us know that we should be practicing self-care, but when it comes to implementing it into our daily lives we struggle. While you may be juggling several priorities at once, it often leads to leaving your own needs at the bottom of your to-do list. Sure, your once-in-a-blue-moon social outings, salon appointments, and gym sessions might be considered self-care, but at its core self-care is about regular activities that help you recharge and make you feel good. If you’re not making time for daily self-care, you’re more likely to feel stressed, unfulfilled and overwhelmed. Read more info at Lifestyle blog.
