Injecting Some Positivity into Your Life – Practical Self-Care Tips

April 30, 2019 No Comments

Sometimes, it’s hard to feel cheerful. This can be fuelled by a number of factors, both internal and external. You might have just had a row with a friend, or encountered a problem at work. Or, you might just be feeling down for no reason – that happens too, sometimes!

Whatever the cause, it’s vital to practice some self-care; to give yourself the best possible chance of recovery. Here are some handy tips.

Practicing meaningful self-care

All too often, we deny ourselves self-care; regarding it as indulgent or selfish. However, you deserve to be looked after and cherished, by yourself as much as others!

  • Talk it over. Don’t bottle your feelings up; they’ll only explode out at a later date. If you’ve been feeling low for an extended period of time, book an appointment to see your GP. There’s no shame in this – depression is a registered medical condition, and like any other health complaint, it needs to be addressed. If you prefer, try talking to a friend or family member – sometimes, just letting those feelings out can be beneficial.
  • Relax and unwind. Our hectic 21st century lives leave us little time to sit and just be present. Meditation is a great way to self-care, but it’s not for everyone. Try relaxing in a warm bath or simply reading a book for half an hour; it really makes a difference.
Relax and unwind
  • Keep a journal. This small, simple act of self-care provides the perfect way to ‘get your feelings out’ on paper. Each day, just write a few notes about what happened, how you felt about it, and what you intend to do in the future. It’s a great way to get your thoughts in order and to prevent over-thinking too.
  • Get outside (and active). There’s something restorative about being out in the fresh air. Even if it’s just a short walk down the road, this can serve to recharge your batteries, leaving you feeling more positive about life in general. Even better, get involved in some form of outdoor-based exercise or sport – like running or playing football. Exercise releases endorphins, which elevate your mood.
  • Spend time with others. Now is not the time to hide away in the home. Arrange a night out with friends, or a special evening with your partner. Spritz on some empowering perfume, like the ultra-powerful Aventus Creed for her, wear something glamorous and really go for it. Afterwards, you’ll feel pleased that you made the effort. Try to make this a regular habit too – staying in every night isn’t good for anyone’s mental health.
Spend time with others
  • Listen to your body’s needs. Try to stay in tune with your body. For example, that outbreak of pimples could be a sign of stress or poor diet. Injecting a few more green vegetables into your meals might make you feel better. If you’re yawning your head off, that’s a clear sign that you need to sleep. Don’t make excuses – your health and wellbeing are far more important than that work deadline.

  • PR sample | It's a hot one today, so I have 2 fans on and windows open - though that kinda defeats the purpose of staying cool though as I'm letting in the warm air in I guess! 😎⁠⠀
⁠⠀
May's @degustabox_UK would have been good for this weather - especially the Prosecco nice & chilled! ⁠⠀

  • You can blame @lipstick_powder_andpain for this little purchase from @superdrug! 😁
This beauty is the @makeuprevolution Courage Wild Animal Palette. I saw it & fell in love with it! 😍
It was a nice way to start the weekend as it arrived Saturday morning.
Speaking of the weekend, how has everyone’s weekend been? Do anything fun or has it been a weekend of relaxation! 😊

  • AD:PRgifted | We finally saw some sunshine today & this morning I wanted to wear a scent that was light, slightly floral yet also slightly fruity too!  So I reached for my By Invitation by @michaelbubleperfume 😊
It’s such a lovely fragrance with top notes of red fruits & bergamot, heart notes of rose, peony, lily of the valley & wild jasmine and leaving you with sandalwood-musk & vanilla praline! 😍
I’m usually not keen on ‘celebrity’ fragrances but this is just a really beautiful perfume. For me it’s also s perfect fragrance for summer. 🌞
Have you tried this fragrance? If not what’s your favourite scent to wear? 😊
