Self-care is a considerably important practice that all individuals should allocate time for. From improving one's emotional, mental and physical health and wellbeing through exercise to encouraging best hygiene practices, self-care is unique to the individual and can significantly contribute to emotional wellbeing. For this reason, ABFE is on hand to discuss Self-Care: The importance of relaxing and re-energising.
The Importance of Self-Care
Without taking time for yourselves, you can become consumed with stress and overwhelmed with the responsibilities of your everyday lives. When this happens, you can struggle to operate at your usual level - ultimately worsening your mental wellbeing when things continue to go wrong.
Best Practices to Relax and Re-Energise
Whilst self-care includes a wide range of practices, the following are the most effective ways to spend time with yourself.
Exercise: Much like our mental health, our physical health is considerably important to preventing illness. Not only does physical activity release endorphins and flood us with a heightened sense of achievement, but the demanding nature of breaking a sweat will also, of course, make you more tired - typically making it easier for individuals to relax afterwards!
Pamper Yourself: Whilst ‘Self-care’ extends beyond a hot bath and hair mask, nothing compares to the way you feel after an evening spent pampering yourself. Not only does this boost our confidence, but the time taken to refresh ourselves is also relaxing and personal - therefore a must if looking to revitalise!
Get Creative: From journaling about your day to painting a masterpiece, getting creative is an incredible way to relax and unwind. The therapeutic nature of getting your creativity flowing is a fantastic way to express yourself and process emotions that may be weighing you down in your day-to-day responsibilities.
Take a Break: Stepping away from a task, even for a brief time, allows us to relax and recoup before reapproaching. Detoxing from our phones is also a great way to promote relaxation, as you will not be interrupted by work responsibilities and the obligations of social media.
