I find well-being tips extremely important in times like these. During this pandemic, you need to take extra good care of yourself. Paying attention to your health and well-being should be one of your top priorities. Follow my well-being tips and make a good change for yourself this Autumn. Are you ready to embark on this journey of self development?
Health is the most precious thing you can have – after I was in and our of hospital last month with my allergic reaction, I’m becoming even more aware of this. If you think about it, all the money in the world can’t buy you your health. Of course, they can improve it. However, the time you spend taking care of yourself can improve not only your physical health, but also your mental health.
Sometimes, you have to put your problems aside and realise that your body is your temple. As long as you maintain the health of this temple, it will be much easier to achieve success. Cultivate yourself, exercise, seek knowledge and take a moment to relax. All these exercises will improve your productivity, creativity and ultimately your determination. You’ll succeed in everything you set out to do as long as you take care of yourself!
1. Candle therapy
Scented candles are indeed therapeutic. Their scent can gently induce a state of relaxation and comfort. Now that the holiday season is approaching, I for one love the winter themed scents. Besides, the beautiful atmosphere you can create with the help of candles, they can also bring a lot of comfort. For example, prepare a bubble bath and instead of leaving the light on, you can opt for an opaque candlelight.
Also, I’ve got a trick for you. Instead of lighting a dozen candles, place one or two of them in front of your bathroom mirror. Their light will spread throughout the room. That way, you can take the evening off and just relax. This month, I’ve finally tried the raved about scented candles from Bath & Body Works.
Made with essential oils, their scent is very strong indeed – you only need one candle and the scent will be spread through your entire space. Plus, you don’t need to light them for long! I honestly love this effect because I don’t need to change my candles so often and I get to enjoy some incredible winter scents – Frozen Lake and Winter Vanilla are my go to now!
2. Pumpkin Spice
For many people, baking is a form of relaxation. It can train your attention and patience. It also gives you the opportunity to spend time with yourself. You can use that time to meditate, listen to a self-development workshop or to your all time favourite tunes. With Autumn coming, I can’t stop thinking about pies or brownies.
You can search for a beginner recipe and who knows, maybe you’ll find a new hobby. After baking, your mind will be much more relaxed and ready to come back with new ideas and initiatives. Besides, the end result may bring a smile not only on your face, but also on the faces of your loved ones who are going to taste the delicious cake you baked.
3. Face masks
Let’s have a spa day at home. Well, I personally love pampering. Not only do I love preparing my own face masks, but I love the way they manage to relax me in just 15 minutes. Although I’m a down-to-earth person, on hard days at work my thoughts fly left and right in the evening. Which is why I love to give myself a little attention.
You can make face masks out of almost anything, literally. So, find some time to spare and use it with the goal of improving both your complexion and your mindset.
4. Seek knowledge
Well, this is one of my favorite activities. I’ll admit, I’m a bit of a history buff. That’s why I love gathering knowledge about this field. I watch documentaries and read books related to my favorite historical topics. I debate with myself and try to improve my perspective all the time. Whenever I have a little free time, I use it to become a better version of myself.
This is really one of the most important well-being tips I will offer you. Always seek knowledge! It is so important to have the ability to have a discussion in which you support your point of view. And last but not least, to be able to consider yourself a well-read and informed person. That’s why it’s time to choose a good book or documentary and enrich your general knowledge! It will help you enormously in the future.
Meditation will help you put your thoughts in order, find inner peace and control your emotions. It is a technique that has been used for thousands of years and if done correctly, it does not fail.
Breathe in. Breathe out. Find a private place and sit in meditation pose. Clear your mind and prepare to contemplate on your life. You need to set a slow pace and focus on your breath. Clear your negative thoughts and find inner peace. Meditation is your best friend when it comes to self development in terms of the psyche. You need to be deep and start to understand how your thoughts and feelings really work. But once you master the art of meditation, you will become a better version of yourself.
All things considered, these well-being tips might seem quite obvious. However, I want to remind you how important they are in order to become the person you’ve always wanted to be. The power is in your hands, dear. Use it wisely.
Until next time,
