Tips actions and things to think on to find peace, even just for a moment.
Take a moment for yourself. You deserve it.
Whether it's reading a chapter of your book, getting outside for 10 minutes, of treating yourself to a cup of coffee, take a break and check in with yourself.
From writing and baking to scrapbooking and colouring in, challenge yourself to create something today. Art and other creative outlets can help you to destress and focus on the moment.
Perhaps there's a new activity you've wanted to try for a while. Why not make today the day you book a stand up paddle boarding lesson?
Maybe you've been waiting for the perfect time to start writing your idea for your novel. How about sitting down for an hour and making a start today?
Getting our of your comfort zone and actually doing the things you've always wanted to can really help to create a positive mindset.
Delete your social media apps for the afternoon, a day, or even the duration of your break. Use for phone for just that, a way for people to call you if they need to get hold of you. Keep a note of the things you have time for when you're not scrolling and consider whether managing your social media / general phone use is something you could bring to every day life.
Breathe in for 4 seconds, hold for 7 seconds, and breathe out for 8 seconds.
This simple practice can make you more aware of your body and how you're feeling.
Self care doesn't always have to be face masks and bubble baths. Set aside half an hour to catch up on those little jobs you need to do, whether it's paying a bill, replying to a text or making a phone call. All those wee jobs might seem daunting or annoying, but they won't take long to tick off.
Check in with yourself afterwards; is there a sense of relief that comes with freeing up that space in your mind?
Eat your next meal without any distractions, no TV or social media. Really savour each mouthful of your meal. Mindful eating is another great way to connect with your body and what it needs.
Find some time, even if it's just five minutes, to sit by yourself and be still. You might want to sit by a window and look out on the world, or head outside and find a place to sit in nature. Allow your mind to wander.
Set a reminder to ensure you get moving. You could set an alarm to make sure you head out on an afternoon walk, or a regular reminder to get up, stretch and grab a glass of water.
An alarm or reminder can help you check in on your posture, as well as how you're feeling.
Try keeping a journal for the duration of your holiday. Notice how checking in with yourself and writing down your thoughts makes you feel.
