Bloggers, been blaming a lack of time for neglecting yourself? We thought so!
When we don’t give enough priority to self care, and instead push our own needs to the side to focus on all the work we need to get done, we burn the candle at both ends, and eventually we burn out completely.
Your blog will only thrive if you are, so it’s time to start making yourself a priority! 😘
🙅🏻♀️ #1 Learn to say no
Feeling pressure to say yes to every situation is draining - even if it’s something as simple as agreeing to meet your friends for a drink at the local bar. Of course there are times we need to say yes for the benefit of our business, but it’s okay to pass up on other things to do what makes YOU happy instead.
📲 #2 Turn off your tech
Spending too much time on social media, feeding your mind with images of everyone else’s ‘perfect life’, can lead to feelings of low-self esteem, and in some cases depression - so ensure you set aside some tech-free time each day.
💑 #3 Socialise, offline
Considering how obsessed we are with social media, we should all be socialising pros right? Think again! Over time, extensive social media use has had a negative effect on our interpersonal communication skills, so make hanging out with friends and family a priority and avoid using your phones during this time!
🛁 #4 Remember the little things
Watching the sunset, buying yourself flowers, or having a bubble bath are all small things you can do to improve your mental wellbeing. Caring for yourself whilst you’re working is important too; invest in a decent desk chair for your posture, take lunch breaks, and drink more water than you do coffee!
📈 #5 Take part in a self-care challenge
Starting a daily self-care challenge online will give you the kickstart you need to focus on improving your wellbeing and stay motivated. 📈
