We push ourselves beyond our limit, sometimes thinking it’s okay and it will work out for the long run. But the bottom line is that you’re doing more harm than good and can’t recognize you need to step back and breathe. It is after taking a mental health day, that we become aware of the things draining us and refresh our minds.
Hobbies are just for you. While the different aspects of our life pull us in a myriad of directions, hobbies are for personal delight. They are about you! Combating boredom, creating challenges, making spaces for enjoyment, promoting wellness and other numerous positives. Avoid listlessness and start adding value, curiosity, and novelty to your life. You’ll find that you’ll start collecting joy.
An excellent way to level up your self-care days is to set aside time for luxury treatment. To continue with our “Luxury Self-Care Days On-Location” series, let’s move into the city center of Shanghai—Jingan. It’s a great spot to be in with a little something for everyone. Jingan has everything from hidden city retreats in parks to luxury malls and small shops, street stall food to fine dining.
One thing to not fall short on is self-care and by doing it up with a bit of luxury you’re in for superb treat. We already have a routine (if not, you should definitely write one) and know that self-care goes a long way for mental and physical health. At certain times, we can benefit from boosting our self-care regimens.
Our self-care moments should be times that we enjoy. Honestly, they are some of the best moments of my day because they remind me that it’s always the little moments. These little moments are the fabric of our lives. I love picking out activities to do for myself—movie night, retail therapy, stay-cation. One of my favorite activities to do for self-care, I do just about every day. These are my face care routines.
