During times of crisis staying centered and rested is essential. But with the world in turmoil, it’s easy to forget about self-care and the joy it provides.
Use these four ideas to reinvigorate yourself and replenish the aspects of your personality that may be obscured by worry and anxiety.
Now it’s time to pay attention to your body. Exercise is a natural way to reduce stress and tension. When we exercise, our bodies produce endorphins, a neurochemical that boosts positive mood and helps us stay optimistic. Go for a walk around the block or in a park, if indoors try stretching exercises, sit-ups/push-ups or other exercises. Be sure to adapt them to your pace and fitness level.
Probably you have been working too hard or worrying too much these last several weeks. But in order to keep taking care of yourself and other people, you need a joyful respite. Think of an activity you can do at home that has brought you joy in the past. It may be taking a long bath, or listening to your favorite music. Whatever it is, allow yourself to do it. You deserve to relax.
Follow Your Passions
Nurturing your passions is a great way to connect with the core of your personality. What are your passions? What thoughts rekindle the spark inside you? Even under the current conditions there are ways to work on the things you love the most. Read or use the internet to research and further your knowledge about your chosen topic. This way you will emerge from this uncertain time readier than ever to embrace your dreams.
We are never as present as when we create. You may not be able to leave your home at the moment, but the act of creation can endow you with a different kind of freedom. You don’t have to be a painter or a professional writer to create. Knitting, sewing, baking or painting by numbers are also acts of creation. When we create, we make deeply personal choices that make us feel whole, capable and fulfilled.
