Choose Quiet And Relaxing Activities
We are on day 2 of the taking care of ourselves challenge and the topic today is why choose quiet and relaxing activities in your self-care challenge.
So, we want to thank you for joining us for Day 2 of the Self-Care Challenge. Throughout this challenge, it is our intention that you will learn about the importance of self-care and get some easy ways to take more time out of your day for YOU.
If you are hesitant about the importance of self-care, think about this – all the people (and pets) who rely on you need you to be happy and healthy. Your physical, emotional, and mental health is vital not just for you, but for them as well. If you become ill or have severe stress, you can’t help anyone, especially yourself.
It is important for everyone to spend more time working on self-care and self-improvement.
Choosing Quiet & Relaxing Activities!
Today, you are going to get some suggestions for choosing activities you can do on your own. Sometimes when you are told to focus more on yourself and have quiet time, you don’t know what that means or what you are supposed to do. There are a lot of options based on your lifestyle, but here are some ideas:
Take a hot, bubble bath – This is probably not the first time you have heard this suggestion. The reason it is suggested so much for self-care is because of how helpful it is. When you take a bath, you are (hopefully) spending that time alone without distractions, while the candles, bath salts, and soft music create a soothing environment for pampering yourself.
Read a book – If you love to read but haven’t done it in a while, now is the time to pick it up again. Even with a busy lifestyle, there are probably at least a few minutes a day where you could get your book out and read. Think about breaks at work, the last few minutes before bed, or in the morning just after you have sent your kids to school.
Think about creative activities – There are also a lot of creative activities that you can participate in that are quiet and relaxing. Think about colouring in an adult colouring book, learning something like knitting or crocheting, or possibly doing something digital, such as learning graphic design.
Spend quiet time outside – Sometimes, you can’t get much quiet time at home, so you need to get outdoors. Go for a walk or a hike, enjoy a few minutes of alone time on your patio or porch, or work in your garden.
That’s it for today! Tomorrow will be all about starting a new morning routine.
If you can find a few minutes to yourself today, you will immediately notice what an impact it makes! See you tomorrow.
We appreciate that it never seems as if there are enough hours in the day, but it is so important to make a conscious decision to practice self-care. Taking care of your mind, body and emotional needs will help you be able to live your best life.
You are your best advocate; if you are not taking care of yourself, it is easy to get burned out by all of life's demands. Taking even just 15 minutes a day for yourself to regroup and relax can have a profound impact on your well-being. Self-care begins and ends with you!
