12 SELF CARE WAYS THAT COST YOU NOTHING BUT TIME

 

"Perhaps the biggest mistake many people have made in the past is believing that love was about finding the right person. In reality, love is about becoming the right person, don't look for the right person, become the right person."

If you're paying attention to conversation these days, chances are that you've heard of self-care and self love. In a competitive time like this, people are working 2 jobs at a time, sometimes family and a job. To make ends meet, to support families. Although, we need a little time to care for ourselves.

Self-care and self love are both important to feel renewed. Come home from work, put on a face mask, and read in bed? Now that's life.

We are here to tell you how you can practice self care at the comfort of your home. We present you some DIYs, small ways to declutter, book recommendations & show recommendations too.

12 SELF CARE WAYS THAT COST YOU NOTHING BUT TIME

~ Naps :

Take more naps, sleep in early when you feel tired.

~ Cook

Youtube is full of instant recipes you can make from scratch or even with leftover food. What a relaxing way to rejuvenate!

~ Play a game

Board games, not online. QUICK TIP : If you want to play a board game but you don't have it, print the game on paper and enjoy with family.

~ DIY Hair & Face Mask

Whatever your beauty needs be, find 'em in the kitchen. (Try - Rosewater and Aloe mixture for hair)

~ Hydrate

Super duper underrated, just chugging a glass of water can have many benefits for you, both physically and mentally.

~ Meditate & Yoga

Nothing beats a kickass yoga session or just a quick 5-10 minutes meditation sesh. Here are a few apps that can be pretty helpful for you :

~ Call a loved one

Distance grows the heart fonder, hence this a total self care step.

~ Fresh sheets

Another underrated way to feel fresh, change your bed sheet, light up a candle and relax.

~ Declutter

Quarantine can make you Marie Kondo, the power of decluttering is insane. Declutter your room, fold your clothes, do your laundry. After all, every one has their ways of relaxing.

~ Get some sun and/or see the sunset

Merely looking at skies or watching a sunset/ sunrise can be calming for your soul.
