How to make self-care a routine 

05/13/2021 | Written by in Adults
How to make self-care a routine 

Fact one: All people want to prosper in their lives. Life is a gift and getting the most out of it is a natural inclination. Fact two: Progression results after taking certain steps. As we all know, Rome wasn't built in a day. Fact three: The essential first step that comes before everything is effective self-care. Keeping physical and mental stability is a must, before setting new goals. Bottom-line: Making self-care a routine is not a luxury but a necessity for all. 

Follow all anti-Covid measures 

Before we take a closer look at how we can set up a routine that will be the basis for personal growth, we shall point out the current Covid-19 situation. News are now more positive than it was a year ago and the pandemic crisis seems to fade away as the vaccines are steadily used among the population. Australia faces a much tighter spread than the rest of the world, but still, everyone shall follow all basic prevention measures. Use of masks, avoiding crowded places and careful hand wash should be the norm for all citizens. Until the day, when there will not be any more health danger, the thorough appliance of precautionary measures should be the top priority for our self-care routine.  

Practice your favourite activities 

Adding variety to daily life is probably one of the most important conditions of achieving a sense of fulfilment. The monotonous repetition of actions could cause devastating effects on human mentality. Our brain has enormous capabilities and by limiting our activities we reduce its further development and function. It is impressive how little of it, people use. In the 1890s, William James, the father of American psychology, said: “Most of us do not meet our mental potential.”  There are many assumptions, one can make about such a crucial issue. Job satisfaction is a correlating factor. Combining intense mental activity with feelings of fulfilment is indeed an ideal condition. However, since such a positive coincidence is the exception to the rule, discovering and practising hobbies or other activities we love, is a must for breaking the monotony and strengthening our self-care. Either it is playing soccer or solving crossword puzzles, revitalisation is essential for transforming our mental and spiritual well-being.  

Take regular breaks through your workday 

The concept of self-care is multidimensional. There are so many factors affecting it, that it would be almost impossible to conclude once and for all, about the best ways to maintain it. As time passes though, there are variations in opinions that used to be popular but were radically transformed. Work culture and job habits are certainly a field that is continuously changing and adapting to new challenges. While in older times, a strict working timetable was the norm and there were no voices of doubt, today everything seems different. Instead of performing consecutive hours of work and, possibly, taking just one break, it is now common ground among a large sector of workers, to take regular breaks. Efficiency and productivity are rather a matter of quality than quantity. Studies show that even a very short break improves mental acuity by an average of 13%. Exhaustion and creativity are on the opposite sides. People are not machines. Clever and adaptive employers tend to realise that notion and encourage such a working culture. 

Exclude negative people from your social circle  

“Man is a political animal.” This is one of the most famous quotes of Aristotle, the great ancient Greek philosopher. This means that people have a fundamental need to be among other people, to flourish. That's a very true notion, indeed. But what is the case, if the people around us seem to absorb our energy, take a negative stance or even bring us down over and over again? Well, it could be useful to think of another famous historical figure: Alexander the Great and the famous legend of Gordian Knot. During his quest to the Persian Empire, in the fourth century BC, Alexander reached Telmissus, the ancient capital of Lycia. Within the city, there was a knot that was fastened in an extremely complicated way. An oracle had declared that any man who could unravel its elaborate knot would become the ruler of all Asia. When Alexander arrived in the city and tried to unravel the knot, he found it impossible to manage. So, he raised his sword and cut it. The rest is history. Likewise, all people shall cut the knot that prevents them from developing their true potential. As harsh as it may sound, it's an unavoidable choice when all other options have

 

Separate work life from personal life 

This is another cause for concern. The ever-growing blurring of limits between personal and work life is endangering the effectiveness of self-caring practices. Nowadays, a great number of people are either overworking or even worse need to work even when they leave their workplace and return to their homes. Apart from the obvious fatigue issues, there are also stress factors that could deteriorate mental stability. The clear and undisputed setting of boundaries will not only increase productivity but will also decrease stress levels. Again, the Covid-19 pandemic is working as a multiplying factor in the trend of non-stop work. All days seem to be the same, a great number of people work solely from home and extreme flexibility is the norm. Effective time management, separation of professional and social contacts, the establishment of strict boundaries and the enrichment of activities out of work are key tactics for managing and adapting to the situation.  

  

Proactive thinking will fulfil your goals 

The list of possible ways to make self-care a routine is certainly not restricted to the above proposals. Paying attention to your diet and sleeping habits, exercising, and setting a time limit for sitting in front of a PC are useful methods of keeping balance and feeling well. Nonetheless, above all, what probably stands above is following a proactive approach and keeping control of our physical, mental and spiritual stability. Making self-care a pleasant routine is a boosting factor for our life perspectives.

Two years I have tried to teach my kids to swim from one school to another. I regret the money I have wasted . It took three lessons 90 minutes each for my kids to swim independently . Thank you for the team of Nereids.

I had the best experience. Diego, my swim coach was fabulous. He was good at challenging me physically as well as good at helping me overcome my psychological barriers. He was always punctual, polite, friendly, and gave good life advice too :D I totally enjoyed my experience and would recommend this swim school.
