Every Sunday, we will be bringing you little edits about how to improve your self-care and wellness. Self-care and wellness have so many different areas, it isn't just about you exercising, watching what you eat, or trying to look like everyone else. It is about feeling good, by doing what is right for your body, mentally and physically. We want our Sunday edits, to not only give you some little tips on how to improve self-care and wellness, but we also want it to be a way for you to grab ten minutes to relax and unwind. We will be covering off various different tips, and a few little tasks to help you create healthy habits to use to improve your own self-care and wellness. After all, we are the most valuable investment we will ever make.
We all know what’s it’s like. We all work hard and we all place each other’s needs before our own. After all isn’t that why you read my edits, to gain more time for yourself and look after your own well-being?? The good news is meditation is an excellent form of sustainable self-care, and what's more, it's FREE!!
Finding the right self-care elements that work for you can take time and practice. What's more, our needs will change as we age. But knowing who you are and what your needs are is the first step in identifying these changes. This week we will be talking about the importance of alone time, the impact it can have, the benefits, and some tips and tricks to help you make time for yourself, by yourself.
We still live in a world where asking for help, whether emotionally, physically, with work, or learning is seen as a sign of weakness or incompetence. What's more, it exposes us to feeling vulnerable. But surely not requesting help is worse??
This week is all about why we need to spend time with others. We talk a lot about self-care and taking time out for yourself to relax alone, but self-care isn’t just about spending time alone. By now you should be understanding the importance of social wellbeing and the role it plays in our mental wellness. But are you spending enough time with those around you? And by time we mean physical time!
Our final installment of our mini communication series is Assertiveness. We will be talking about what it is to be assertive, the benefits of becoming more assertive, and techniques to try to build up your assertive skills.
With communication being a key element in how you connect and interact with others, build friendships, and communicate your feelings; we broke up our communication edit into a smaller bite-sized mini series. This week part three of our mini communication series is all about how you can work to improve your own communication skills.
This week we jump back into communication and delve into what your body is really trying to say. Every time you communicate your body gives off many silent signals to those around you. It tells others about who we are, what our personalities are like, and what we REALLY think, all before someone approaches you, so imagine what it is saying when you are deep in conversation with someone!
This week our fourth installment is all about Communication. Communication helps us to meet new people and provides us with the necessary skills needed to help build and sustain relationships with others.
The second installment of our social well-being mini-series is support systems. We will all experience times of unrest, stress, grief, financial uncertainty, relationship breakdowns, and periods of subdued mood. Having a robust support system in place represents the first step in managing those difficult, sometimes hard-to-navigate feelings. Taking stock of those around you is a tremendous way to develop a support system for when we truly need help, guidance, or just some plain old straight talking!
Our second installment of our social well-being mini-series is positive social media. In an age of technology, we are all connected, but how much of what we see is real?
We all have boundaries but it’s whether we communicate them or not. Some may have lost touch with what our boundaries are, some maybe take a strong stance on where they draw the line, and others may not be able to voice their boundaries at all.
Social well-being is about how we interact with those around us. How comfortable we feel and how we adapt to social situations. It’s about the community you live in and the contributions you make to the society around you.
This week sees the last of our Emotional Self-Care series, ending with kindness - You Are Never Too Important To Be Kind To Someone. Being kind means to be kind to friends, family, colleagues, and strangers, but it also means being kind to yourself.
Our fourth installment of Emotional Self-Care is compassion. In order to have compassion for others, you need to have compassion for yourself. This week’s edit will help you feel more content, by teaching you how to be more compassionate towards yourself.
Our third installment for Emotional Self-Care is forgiveness - It’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. This week's edit aims to give us the tools needed to heal past pain, let go of any anger, and learn to forgive those who have caused you hurt.
Our second mini-series is on emotional well-being. As you may have noticed last week, this mini-series delves into the emotional aspect of wellness. Embarking you on a journey of self-development, and forcing you to become more self-aware.
