The current age brings its due share of stress and worries, especially with the pandemic engulfing the world. The pressure can be plenty nowadays. What we need to do is find harmony within ourselves to deal with any discord outside. One way to minimize the impact of stress in your life is by weaving some moments of self-care into your routine.
Humans test their stress limits to the point where they feel overwhelmed. We put everything above our mental health, whether it’s our work routine, study schedule, or social commitments. We tend to keep ourselves last. In no time, things seem out of control. Instead of waiting for our breaking points, we should incorporate healthy self-care habits so our minds and souls feel at peace.
There is no prize for exhaustion, and no one will feel drained except you. Nothing should be above your health and well-being, So instead of burning out, there are multiple ways you can wind down and enact self-care in these mindful ways.
1-Indulge in Mindful Eating
Having clean eating habits is one way you can show love to your body. However, when and how you eat is also essential. Eating meals regularly and mindfully is also important. Eating slowly and steadily helps you enjoy your meal. In this way, you can practice gratitude and make eating a pleasurable ritual.
Most of the time, we are having meals while doing several other chores. Rushing through your meals can leave you unsatisfied, resulting in low mood and energy levels. Self-care is about the best way to treat yourself and the respect you give to your body. Take some time out to eat your meal without distractions, so you feel more famished and recharged.
2-A Refreshing Morning Walk
The morning is the most refreshing time of the day. Having the morning to yourself and doing mild exercise can be one of the best ways to indulge in self-care and self-love.
The morning air is fresh and oxygen-rich, and stretching it out in the morning can be beneficial for both your mind and body. Take some time to yourself and enjoy mother nature's beauty. A morning walk can also help you soak up some sun that can get you your daily Vitamin D dose.
3-Pamper your Body
The one thing that needs thorough compassion from you is your body. Hydration and mindful eating can help you stay healthy internally. However, your body also needs an external dose of care as well. Let's not forget that pampering your body can also relax your mind and improve stress levels. The spas were started with the clear intention to create a space for you to relax and pamper yourself.
You can create a spa-like self-care routine at home too. Take a shower with lukewarm water; you can use Majestic Pure natural body wash with blueberry extract with a natural therapeutic scent that can help your body relax in the shower. Next, apply a scrub generously over your body. Majestic Pure Himalayan scrub with Collagen is a fantastic option; it will leave your skin lightly scented and moisturized. Rinse off thoroughly and apply a Majestic Pure Lavender massage oil on your skin to lock in the moisture. This oil has a romantic aroma that will relax nerves and your muscles. This routine will leave your skin with a smooth satin finish. Take a long nap after these steps to reap the full benefits of this spa-worthy routine.
4-A Cozy Break
The best way to relax is to take a break from all the commotion. Take a relaxing detour from your daily life by creating a cozy atmosphere at your home. One of the best ways to wind down from a tiring day at work is a pedicure or a foot soak.
You can give your feet a luxury treatment at home too. Fill warm water in a foot basin and soak your feet in the water for at least 15 to 20 mins. While you wait, put a few drops of Majestic Pure Lavender Essential oil in the diffuser to create a relaxing atmosphere. You can also light some scented candles to create an ambiance to your liking. Voila! You will feel renewed and relaxed.
Working on a project or cooking a recipe can be very therapeutic. Self-care is all about spending more time with yourself and enjoying your own company. A little activity like a DIY project or baking a batch of brownies can make you feel in charge of your happiness. When you're done, you can treat yourself to a TV show or movie of your choice while you munch on your favorite treats.
One of the best ways to indulge in self-care is to unplug from the world for a while. Many social sites like Instagram and Facebook can be useful, but they can be very consuming. It can be hard to maintain an image online and compete with the rest of the world.
People often showcase their accomplishments, and it won't be long before you're comparing your real life with everyone's reel life. Take some time off, watch a documentary or a motivational speech and unplug from social media to allow yourself to savor the moment and love your life.
7-Talk it Out with a Friend
Good friends can be the best solace when you feel stressed out or out of place. Talking to a friend about how you think can be another way to feel better. Have a fun-filled and reassuring conversation with your best friend. Talk about the issue at hand and maybe also discuss old memories and good times you have spent together. These types of conversations can fill you with gratitude about how blessed you are and that you're not alone.
8-Journal it Down
Talking to a friend is one way, but sometimes you want to keep it to yourself. The benefits of journaling are far and wide. It is one of the best ways to vent out and throw your worries away. Writing it down on paper helps; words flow, and your heart feels less heavy and tense. Journaling can also help you in aligning your routine and setting goals. Take some time to jot down all the stressful moments in your day, plan your next day or even the following week. You can also write affirmations to help you stay positive throughout your day.
9-Hydrate and Hydrate
The importance of hydration cannot be emphasized enough. You not only need to keep yourself hydrated, but your skin also needs its dose of hydration. You can make detox water by adding lemon to add flavor to water. Drink at least 3-4 L water a day at a minimum. Keep your skin moisturized by using any lightweight moisturizer or oil. You can also reach out for a hydrating mask like Majestic Pure 24K Gold Mask to nourish and revitalize your skin.
When it comes down to your self-care and self-love, even baby steps can make a difference. Share the love, spread peace, and stay positive.

I love all of these tips. Thank you very much. I do enjoy walking in the morning fresh air by the lake. I feel so powerful during and after. I love going to the spa and getting a facial or massage. Naps are a little peace of heaven right at home.
