Not enough time for self-care

Not enough time for self-care

Many people struggle to find the time to take care of their mental and physical health. It is especially difficult for students and young professionals that find the need to prioritise their learning and work overwhelming. At the end of the day, they have little remaining energy and motivation to focus on themselves.

But, ironically, taking the time for nurturing our mind, body and spirits can help us be more effective.

Self-care ideas: Change how you think

Many people work with a trade-off mentality - in order to add one thing, we need to take time away somewhere else. There are indeed limits to our time, but this mindset stops us from making positive changes.

The solution to self-care is not to have a better routine. It is to change how we think. We have to reframe how we view the interconnections between the different parts of our lives.

Self-care ideas: Define self-care on your own terms

We all have assumptions about what self-care should look like. But only you really know what your mind, body, and spirit need to excel. Maybe it's unwinding in front of the television. Perhaps it's finding a therapist to support you.

To help you understand what self-care looks like to you, start by noticing what makes you feel energised and what makes you feel drained.

Self-care ideas: Check for all-or-nothing thinking

Pay attention to how you think regarding making time for yourself. Many people believe they have to overhaul their lifestyle overnight, so they avoid making any changes.

Notice when your mind leans toward the all-or-nothing mentality. Then start to explore small, doable changes. Learn what works for you and what doesn't.

Seek opportunities to integrate self-care

The most sustainable self-care solutions come from combining different parts of our lives.

For example, self-care time could enrich your career (a meeting while walking), support your town (tidying up the neighbourhood), or grow your relationships (streaming yoga videos with a friend or family member.)

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Ghazala Begum
