Have you ever felt the desperation to unwind and the need to relax after a long tiring day at work catering to the needs of others? In this fast-paced, hyper-connected world we live in, unplugging our mind and body from the exterior world seems impossible, yet it is the simplest thing to do.
Self-care is anything we do to nourish ourselves, which is crucial when we are feeling overwhelmed or burnt out from our jam-packed lives. With that being said, that is why creating a self-care space at home is a great idea to shut the rest of the world out and turn inward.
Having a self-care space in the comfort of your own home helps you to have the inner strength to understand yourself better and give yourself what you truly need. Making time and space for self-care means creating time in your day to focus on recharging and prioritizing yourself. On purpose. You read that right. Might sound like a bit of trouble and time-consuming, but trust us! Once you’ve made it as a routine, you’ll have more time in your day and a clearer headspace for you to tackle tasks more efficiently.
A great self-care space also helps you to practice focused attention which allows you to deepen your relationships with others and of course, will help you to be more productive!
In order to create a self-care space at home, you must first figure out what a self-care space looks like for you. Since this space serves you as an escape, it should be done by you, for you. So you’ll know what works best with the space and what will make you feel at ease in the space where you’ll be learning yourself. Whether it’s a cozy corner in your bedroom or balcony full of your plant babies, or even the shower, as long as you feel safe and comfortable, you are good to go!
Onto the next steps, ditch your screens. Yes, of all kinds! Put them on silent and it’s time for you to turn that big brain of yours on auto-pilot mode and let it wander and daydream. Because in our hectic lives, we hardly give ourselves a chance to daydream and ponder. Giving your brain a break can help you rest up for future challenges and relieve any stress that may be lingering.
Another wonderful addition to your self-care space would be words of affirmation, so you could manifest and remind yourself that there is no one else in this entire universe, who deserves your love and affection more than you yourself.
At the end of the day, everyone needs a break. Therefore, disconnecting from the outside world for a while to recharge, is not a bad idea after all.
