Indulge in Self-Care Amidst Your Hustle




Maintaining a job and a social circle can get hectic at times. Even the going gets tough in the office once in a while. While we accept all this as a part of life, what we fail to notice is that it takes gradual toll on our creativity and energy levels. Feeling too drained out for a long period of time can even adversely affect our patience levels and focus, and directly impact pour health. We all know the downward spiral of reduced productivity and frustration that begins from here. And the results can be disastrous. So, it is very important that we indulge in some self-care from time to time, in order to put a brake on the exhaustion and feel rejuvenated.
Self-care is essentially you identifying your own needs and taking steps to meet them in a way that makes your inner self feel pampered. These may be skin and hair needs or even something deeper like the need to calm your mind down and dissociate from the world for a while. You don’t always need to head to an exotic spa resort for self-care. Here are some simple ways you can engage in self-awareness and relaxation practices in your daily life:
Sleep: Having sound sleep for a good 7-8 hours is underrated. It plays a crucial role in our physical and mental health as well as our stress levels, which affect everything from our body weight to our skin. Sound sleep for a minimum of 7 hours every night is non-negotiable. Otherwise the feeling of exhaustion and dullness will continue.
Turn off the gadgets: With constant notifications and work Whatsapp groups, it is very natural to feel like you are never off the clock. Continued exposure to gadgets can not only create stress on the mind but the blue light from the screen can also potentially hamper your vision and sleep pattern. To avoid falling a prey to this, turn off your gadgets a while before going to bed and relax with a book and some light music while sipping on a cup of herbal tea.
Cut back on caffeine: While caffeine provides you with the instant energy rush to get your day started, it also has a half-life of 5 to 8 hours, meaning the cup of coffee you drank post lunch will have half the amount of caffeine in your system while you hit the bed, causing trouble in falling asleep and jitteriness. Hence, you should avoid any caffeine ideally after 2 p.m and try green tea instead. You can even sip on chamomile and lavender TEA before bed to induce quality sleep.
With these few steps, you will be able to retain your energy level for a long period of time without facing the in-between burnout. Cheers to a more mindful lifestyle, we say!
