Life is hectic, responsibility's are upon us, work, life, families & then there is the pressures we put on ourselves.
Ultimately its about being the best version of ourselves and to take it day by day while also being kind to ourselves.
Here are a few things I have learnt along the way.
YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT - How many times have you heard that. Fuel your mind and body with nutritious & a variety of foods. Yes eat that chocolate while being mindful. Drink 8 glasses of water day, your body will love you for it.
MOVE THAT BODY. Take time for exercise, get some fresh air. If you live near a beach or a park take advantage of it and hey take your shoes off especially on grass if your game they say it helps prevent insomnia, reduction in inflammation, helps improve your mental well being, regulates your heart health and is great for your eyes.
SELF DEVELOPMENT - Read, study, do that crossword/wordle. Find something that will help you upskill. Finding hobbies that you can incorporate into your life and that fulfil you. Podcasts are a great way to learn and a free resource.
JOURNAL/MEDITATE - There's something said about writing down your goals and your dreams. Visualise them. Find space & peace with your thoughts. while creating an environment that is nurturing. Something I personally love every 4-6 months is getting a massage or a float, that's an absolute luxury for me.
INDULGE - Bath, shower, scrub, mask, time for you. Slather your whole body in moisturiser and let your skin nourish it all. The skin is the largest organ in the body. I aim to do this at least once a week if possible. Some of my friends swear by fake tan Thursdays. They love a goddess glow which makes them feel super confident.
ENVIROMENT - declutter your space. Take the rubbish out, make your bed., wipe down all the surfaces of your home. Light a candle and even some sage or incense. Go through your clothes, wardrobes and spaces that accumulate things (stuff).. Sell unwanted items or donate them to charity.
TIME/SOCILAISE - Create time for others and surround your self with people that fill your cup. You don't even realise your more than likely filling theirs also. Its times like these that a great belly laugh is good for the soul and the amount of endorphins released is incredibly great for you.
