No matter the mood, we often need a little ‘pick me up’. I have decided to share with you my top 5 self care tips! I hope you find them as helpful as I do.
Clean room, clean mind
One thing I have learned over the years, is that when you surround yourself with a clean environment, it instantly cleans your mind of those nasty thoughts. Whenever I am starting to feel stressed or down, my first move is always to clean my room!
A nice cuppa
This might possibly be the most British thing I have ever said, but there really isn’t anything that cannot be solved with a nice cup of tea. I often find when I’m feeling especially down, I am always cold! All I want to do is snuggle up in bed, but there are unfortunately often times you cannot. So my problem solver for this situation, is a cuppa of course!
My favourite show
Another self care trick I have, is to pop on my current favourite show. I often go for something light hearted or comical on certain days, but whatever works for you!
I have always been an arts and crafts kind of person, so this may not be helpful to those that aren’t. That being said, I find crafts very therapeutic, especially with some soothing music in the background!
This one may seem a little obvious, but I can honestly say I wouldn’t be the person I am today without music. Whenever I am having a bad day, all I need to do is pop a little music on! Whether it be my favourite song, or just some chilled out music, my mood instantly lifts. And before I know it, I have gone from crying on my bed, to dancing around my room singing Mamma Mia.
