self-care for the soul
notice the small beauty: look for beauty in the little things around you such as the beautiful color of a sunrise on your way to work or a newly blooming flower by the side of the highway. immerse your mind in nature’s gifts and feel gratitude for such small beauties around you.
connect: go out of your way to have a brief but uplifting conversation with someone you encounter today, such as a cashier or someone at your gym. you can ask them a simple question such as: how is your day going?
check in with yourself: take a moment to reflect on your own headspace. are you frustrated? sad? nervous? reflect on that emotion and allow yourself to feel it – then brainstorm ways to tackle what makes you anxious.
be positive: tell someone what you love about them. you’ll feel great for giving them an uplifting comment and they might return the favor.
ground yourself in nature: go for a stroll through a local park or beach. let yourself feel closer to nature. be present and listen to the birds singing or the sound of waves crashing. smell the flowers.
