Filling our cups...
It's a daily balancing act where setting boundaries and taking care of ourselves needs to come into play.
If you feel like you're not getting the time you need to nurture your needs and fill your cup, here are some ideas for what to do:
1. Make your meals count
Fuel your body with what it needs and even try a few new healthy foods you've never tried before. Try to have fun with new recipes, finding bright and exciting ingredients to make dishes that look like photo-worthy restaurant shots to pamper yourself. There are tons of free cooking classes online for you to try, too.
2. Do something fun for exercise
Physical activity helps boost immunity, so give it all you've got. I know the gym may not be a possibility right now unless you have a home gym, so look for fun things you can do to get that exercise in. Try dancing or at-home fitness routines online so you can keep your body moving while making it feel like you've escaped.
3. Relax deeply
Stress is something we're all feeling collectively. We can't escape it entirely, but we can cope with it. What helps to relax you? Have a few tried-and-true methods you use to relax and rotate them throughout the week. This sounds like an effortless thing to do, but choosing this time for yourself each week gets overlooked often, so decide to make it a priority and stick with it!
4. Fulfill your need to interact with others
Surely, we can all agree that missing the ones we love is tough. Find the best ways to interact with friends and family in whatever way feels safest and most wise. We are fortunate to have the virtual world we have, so take advantage of that through these times to stay connected with those you love. Keep in mind this is temporary, even though it isn't as temporary as we first hoped. Don't forget to check in on those in your circle, too.
5. Turn off the drama
We've been bombarded with information -- much of it ever-changing. When the news and social media gets too much, please turn it off. We got along just fine before we had all this information at our fingertips, and it will do you so much good to live in the moment instead. You can practice by setting a timer each day to consume information and stop once the timer is up. This will help you still feel connected and informed, but it won't allow you to spend hours of your day consumed by it.
And, of course, find those ways to treat yourself wherever you can.
Support a local restaurant by ordering takeout to take a night off of cooking. Soak in your tub, order a new outfit or running shoes, take time to read a good book, and find ways to tap into what makes you feel more content.
