5 Self Care Ideas to help with your Mental Wellbeing

Self Care is so important and taking some time for yourself can be hard especially with busy lives. Taking some time for you doesn't have to take long, just an hour a day to switch off from reality. I find taking time for Self Care really helps with my Mental Health especially during the last year trying to find a 
Work | Life Balance. 

I've listed below a few of my favourite Self Care Ideas that I like to try every so often, you could even mix them up and try a few different ones: 

Running a hot bath: 
This is one of my favourite ones especially after a busy day at work or a hard gym session. Using my favourite bath products with a few of my favourite candles along with a glass of wine of course. Taking time of pamper yourself can really make you feel better. Maybe read your favourite book or watch catch up with your favourite YouTuber. I try and stay off of social media and give myself a break for an hour. 

Exercise:
No matter how I'm feeling, a good workout always makes me feel better even if my whole body is in paid afterwards! It doesn't have to be anything too much a walk around your local area or even a Yoga session any kind of exercise will make you feel better and will help with your Mental Health. 

Have a chat with Friends or Family:
Self Care doesn't have to be something you do on your own. Having a chat with a friend or family member can really help with our Wellbeing. Whether you've had a bad day and you want to have a rant or just a general chat, just talking can make you feel a whole lot better. 

Buy a bunch of fresh flowers:
Why not treat yourself every now and again. I love buying a bunch of flowers to boost my mood, something to brighten up the house. I love colour to help boost my mood and I try to buy a bunch of fresh flowers each week. 

Spend some time outside: 
I love going for a walk everyday (when its not pouring with rain of course). It doesn't have to be far just around the block or my favourite is walking to my local coffee shop and taking a walk around the park. We should be spending on average around about 15 minutes per day and this can help to relieve stress. It could be before or after work, even on your lunch break if you don't have much time. It could be a walk, run or cycling. You might just want to sit on a park bench and watch the world go by. If you're like me and you prefer working out in the gym, its still so important to spend some time outdoors. 

Its so important to take some time out of your life and its easier said than done, I know. It could be a couple of times a week but try and make sure you get some time for you. 

What are your favourite Self Care ideas? 

Lots of love Chlo 💛
