Okay, it’s a new year and I know a lot of people want to start practicing self care this year. For a lot of my friends 2018 was a hot mess and they want to take this year to focus on themselves and make sure that they are the best person that they can be. I am on the same wavelength and I’m sure a lot of you want to be your best self this year.

Taking care of yourself is the first thing to do to ensure that you’re living your best life. Here are some self-care practices to try this year.

Workout

In the gym, at home, at a class wherever, whenever. WORK IT OUT. I feel my best after a workout. At one point, for me, it wasn’t about losing weight. It was about feeling good, getting rid of stress and staying healthy. Now, I have a different agenda, but it’s still a form of self-care for me.

Face Mask

Apply your favorite face mask and kick your feet up. I don’t know what it is about face masks that make me feel calm and at ease. Maybe it’s because I can’t move my face much and I have no choice but to sit still and relax. You’re relaxing and taking care of your skin at the same time. I STAN.

Do A Hobby You Love

For me that could be writing a post, writing a chapter, practicing lettering, etc. When I’m in the zone and in my element there’s no telling what I can do.

What are some ways that you practice self care? I would love to know.

  1. I can speak on 2 of the three. I’ve lost 25 pounds in the last 5 months. Still got 20 more to go to be in a neighborhood I’m familiar with. Being physically in shape is going to help with my hobbies because it will help me think better. This year I definitely want to write more; not necessarily on here but I want to get back to the pen and paper like I use to do. I also want to work more on my drawing and video editing. So far I’ve been consistent with the editing but gotta step up on the others. These aren’t really New Years Resolutions because I’ve been working on all of this since October.

  2. Stress is something where either we’re too much filled up or we’re too empty to do something. It’s a feeling of being under too much mental or emotional pressure and everyone has their own ways to get rid of stress.
    One may not be in the mood to meditate during stress as our thoughts are racing though meditation is one of the best ways to reduce stress. One also may at times face relationship-stress where breathing exercises is not the solution but breathing exercises is again the ideal ways to take out stress; communicating with your partner is what will get a solution in such a situation.
    I’ve just done a post on how to get rid of stress. Do take a look and let me know what you feel: http://thesoultalks10.com/how-to-get-rid-of-stress/
