Like everyone, I do have some low-key days when I just don’t want to do anything.Sometimes there is a reason but most of the time its nothing.It’s perfectly normal to feel down but it’s YOU who has to lift your self up.It doesn’t matter how much busy you are, get at least 1 hour for yourself.
Here things I love to do for myself.
Start Your Day Positively: Try to wake up as early as possible, I don’t know about other people but if I wake up late like after 9 Am it would be one of my least productive day for sure.Start your day with prayers and be Thankful for the life.
Have a Positive Start: If you think positive it will surely move on you positively.As someone said you can not live a positive life with a negative mind, I totally agreed.
Plan Your Day: Do your chores done as soon as possible, It makes you stress-free trust me.For example,Making my bed as soon I am off to bed, automatically makes my home clean.
Take a Bath and Dressed up: If I am feeling down, I try to get my basic chores done as soon as possible. I mostly sprinkle my bath salt and have a long spa bath.Bath salt relaxes and takes my stress out.Dress up myself nicely and put some makeup on.By doing this, my day surely productive and better than being a couch potato in my PJs whole day.
Get Some ME Time: As home stayed mom I don’t have much social life.My life revolves around my kids.It’s very important for everyone including myself to get some ME time to get the sh*t out.I love to go for window shopping alone, mostly Home goods / Thrift stores and get inspired. If I don’t have time to go out ,I just put my favorite face mask on and relax.
Give Yourself a Gift: I live for flowers and I can die as well, it automatically lift your mood on at least mine.I get my flowers whenever I go for grocery, it’s cheaper than buying from a flower shop.I am not asking to buy brand named expensive stuff and break your bank. For me ,buying an ice cream is a treat to yourself to enjoy.
Be Creative: Do whatever you like, I normally motivate my self by doing a DIY or some crafting even making a new recipe lift my mood up.
Be Gentle: For yourself and for others, do not take things to your heart.Trust me I used to be a very sensitive person(still I am), I had been taken things to my heart without saying and being hurt for several days.It did nothing just hurting my own self, shattered and depressed. I have learned that Just Forget and Move on.Mistakes can happen and it’s you who has to learn, you can’t teach/force anyone.
If you don’t have something to say positive, it’s better to say nothing.Encourage people around you and motivate them as well.
Happy Friday guys..its last day of March break, hope you have a good one!!
