1. Learn to say "no"

Create boundaries for yourself based on how you feel and what you value. It's the most simple form of self care. Saying "no" gives you space to say "yes" to new opportunities and experiences. 

2. Take a nature bath

Beach, lake, or river - immerse yourself in cool water to feel free and weightless. Don't fancy a swim? Even just being around a body of water can have a calming effect on our psyches. 

3. Laugh more

Whether it be catching up with the closest pals or watching something comedic, a good laugh is an instant pick-me-up! That's why they say, "laughter is the best medicine".

4. Mindful journaling

Open a blank page in your journal and pour it all out! If you are not sure where to start try using these prompts: 

  • Name three thoughts that made you smile today.
  • Name three things that challenged you today.
  • Name three events that made you feel productive today.

5. Just breathe 

Take a moment to practise some deep breathing. Get comfortable, breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth....slowly. This will help your mind and body to feel relaxed.
