Does life have you feeling a little thirsty for self-care these days? You aren’t alone! In fact, the importance of self-care is at an all-time high, with the added pressures of post-election season, COVID and - oh yeah! - normal, everyday life. With the busyness of the upcoming holidays, it can be hard to take time for yourself. That’s why Something Splendid is investing in you in a major way, by granting you all the permission and support you need to tend to you and take care of yourself. And those around you.
Healthline recently offered some tips we want to share with our Something Splendid family; tips for self-care during quarantine:
- Wake up, get up and get dressed in the morning.
- Regulate your sleep schedule by getting up and going to bed at the same time every day, and aiming for 7–8 hours of sleep every night.
- Prioritize natural sunlight. Whenever possible, work near a window and get yourself some direct access to sunlight to help boost your mood and productivity.
- Get some exercise, if only a walk for a few minutes each day.
- Stay hydrated.
- Find a quarantine-safe hobby to enjoy.
- Make time for loved ones, if only virtually. Don’t lose your greater sense of self or let yourself become isolated from those who you love and who love you.
- Ask for help when you need it. Feeling down? Let someone know. Even if the fix is hopping on Zoom and watching an episode of your favorite show with someone you love, that can make all the difference.
Something else we strongly recommend? Gifting. The simple act of thinking about and treating someone to an unexpected treat can boost your mood tenfold. That’s why we’re happy to help you gift some of these great self-care goodies.
