Self Care Sunday (Or any day you choose!)


Hello there !

I hope you are enjoying your day – 3 tips to help you remember that you need to rest and replenish. Self Care Sunday is a must for me to keep myself well

1. Do  nothing – Rest, relax and don’t worry about what you ‘should ‘ be doing. Enjoy a stress free day – when did you last do that? If you are like me, it feels very uncomfortable to sit and do absolutely nothing, there is always housework to do, always a list of tasks not done. But I’ve found when I take time to rest and relax, it makes me more effective when I get started again.

2. Plan the week ahead

Whether it’s planning your meals, your outfits for the week, when you are going to exercise, when are you going to make time for some fun! I find it easier to plan all of the above at the start of the week, I’m not naturally a morning person, so I like having my clothes for the next day laid out before I go to bed. It just works better for me. and when trying to make healthy food choices, again planning ahead helps me to avoid grabbing an unhealthy snack. All the things I really want to achieve in the coming week, need to be put into my schedule, or I find before I know it, the week has gone and left me behind. 

3. Thinking and Thanking – End and start the day in gratitude, think of 10 things you are grateful for. 

This is such a simple ritual that has helped me become much more of a positive person. As someone who has suffered with depression, and with all the doom and gloom in the world, I need to make a conscious effort to focus on the good. Thinking about the good things in my life, and it can something small like a smile from someone or a great cup of coffee, being grateful for these daily pleasures helps me to have a great day. Even on a ‘bad day’ there is always something good you can take from it.

‘A positive attitude becomes a great day which becomes a great month which becomes a great year which becomes a great life’

Thank you for reading, it means a lot to me.
