Self-care is a vital part of caring for your mental health and overall well-being. Everyone needs to learn to practice self-care; however, making time for self-care can be challenging when exhausted. Here are a few self-care tips you can practice when you find yourself feeling exhausted.

#1. Remove a Nagging Job From Your To-Do List

If you are feeling exhausted, try to take something off of your to-do list. Give yourself a break. If a task does not need to be done right away, let yourself do it later after you feel a little more refreshed. It is okay to give yourself a break sometimes.

#2. Relax in a Low-Sensory Environment 

If you are feeling exhausted, try to unplug. Give your phone, social media, and email a break. If you are watching something on television, make it something comforting and relaxing. Dim the lights and surround yourself with items that you find soothing. If you enjoy candles, then light some. If you find relaxation in a large soft blanket, grab one.

#3.  Make a Delicious Meal

What we fuel our bodies with can have a significant impact on how we feel. Try to make a delicious and healthy meal that will fill you up and make you feel good.

You may find this challenging when you find yourself exhausted; however, as you begin to cook your meal, you may find yourself feeling excited and revived by what you are making.

#4. Stretch Your Body 

Take a few minutes and stretch. You may find yoga or meditation to be beneficial. Stretching and finding your center can help to calm the mind and refresh the body.

Making time for self-care is a crucial part of mental health and maintaining your overall well-being, and everyone requires something different when it comes to personal care. If you find yourself feeling exhausted, it can be challenging to find the strength to practice self-care. Try to give yourself a break from the to-do list. You may also benefit from a low-sensory environment or relaxation activities such as yoga or meditation. Here at The Guest House, we know how difficult self-care can be.
