How have you been practicing self-care, balance, and emotional intelligence?
At different times in our life, we cannot control what happens externally, but we can control how we react to what happens.
When you practice self-knowledge, you understand your own limits, what needs to be changed and how to act in the face of problems.
Adhering to the everyday habit of taking care of your mind, body, and soul, in addition to learning how to deal with emotions, can help in managing stress and conflict situations, besides increasing motivation, joy and focus.
We have selected 7 top tips for you to have days with a lot of balance and self-care, after all, living better is at your fingertips.
Take breaks in your day to stretch. Stretching your muscles will take away the tension that can build up if you stay in the same position for a long time. Try also taking deep breaths to increase the relaxation feelings.
- Breaks during the day.
Whether to drink water, stretch your legs, have a snack, give your family attention (online and offline), or organize a corner of the house. It is important to put the body to move.
- Take good care of yourself.
Connect with yourself, find some time to enjoy yourself, listen, thank you for the good things and smile, thinking about moments and sensations that make you happy. Pay attention to your body and mind.
- Balanced food
Even inside the house we also spend a lot of energy and our body needs to refuel! Try to eat consciously, observing the nutrients you are ingesting. Take time out of meals to eat calmly.
- Balance online and offline
We stay connected all day, flooded with information that generates even more anxiety. How about remembering good offline activities? Read a book, play a board game, test a recipe, put your foot down, or even touch that little plant that was left at home.
- Calm things down
At the end of the day, lower the lighting, prepare a hot drink, avoid caffeine, and slow down, a good night’s sleep is essential for physical and mental health.
Taking good care of yourself is one of the best things you can do for a happier life. Enjoy!
