17 Oct Taking Care Of Your Mental Health
Taking care of your mental health is always important. But it’s even more important to carve out time for your mental health in today’s climate. Working from home and being away from family members is incredibly stressful for everyone. Here are some simple ways to take care of your mental health.
Use Your Phone Wisely
Social media is a source of anxiety for many people. It’s so easy to compare yourself to others, and the constant access to news is also worry inducing. Try setting timers on your phone so you don’t use it before bed, which can impact your sleep. Use your notes app to make to do lists to help you feel organized, or write a worry list to help feel less anxious.
Take Advantage Of Scented Products
Even if you’re busy, using a product that is scented with something like lavender or chamomile will help you feel calm. The Eos Lavender hand cream will help bring a moment of peace to your day. Burt’s Bees Lavender and Honey Lip Balm smells and tastes amazing. Pillow sprays don’t just have to be used at night. You can spray them on your clothing if you feel anxious throughout the day, or use them as a perfume. This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray uses lavender and vetiver to soothe the senses.
It’s amazing what the act of gratitude can do to your mental health. All you need is the notes app on your phone, or a notebook and pen. Every day, write down a few things that you’re thankful for. It can be anything from a nice dinner out with your friends to a really good cup of coffee. This will make you more conscious of the things you have to be thankful for. This will in turn make you a happier person.
There’s a reason spas are so popular. There’s nothing like the feeling of being truly pampered. However, it’s difficult to make the time to go to a spa to get a facial or a massage. But there are ways to pamper yourself at home. Sheet masks are a quick and affordable way to make yourself feel pampered and to give your skin a treat. Look for ones that will work with your skin type. As we move in to the colder months, this Holika Holika Shea Butter mask will be perfect to moisturize dry skin. To keep hard working hands soft and supple, try these Dr. Organic Lavender Moisturizing Gel Gloves to both hydrate your hands and nails and soothe your mind with a heavenly scent.
There are many other ways to take care of your mind. Other options include exercise, cleaning and socializing. As long as something works for you, that’s all that matters. Remember, “you can’t pour from an empty cup,” so don’t forget to put yourself first once in a while.
