7 Easy Ways To Make Self-Care A Priority In Your Life Today
Start writing a post

Self-care is an essential underrated necessity for us to touch "our" abstract idea of happiness – An intention we all endeavor, yet we remain fogged in the trail of optimally achieving it.

Caring for ourselves empowers us to consider our happiness first. It trains us to protect our value, our health, and our happiness; and being happy from within allows us to advance and provide a positive environment for the people we love and care about the most.

Let's start to take better care of ourselves!

1. Exercise

Exercise plays a fundamental role in being healthy. Exercising not only makes you feel good about yourself but also helps you set goals for yourself. It gives you a foundation to further make better.

Setting goals for yourself also serves as a brilliant lifestyle exercise, as it makes "you" a better "you"!

2. Have a Healthy Diet

Being healthy is not about looks or attractiveness, it's about being able to do things, being able to go places, and being able to live. A healthy diet is extremely important for a healthy "you."

Your diet has a very strong correlation to mental health. Having a healthy diet goes hand in hand with having healthy mental health.

3. D-I-Y Beauty

Spend time in taking care of your beauty – appreciate your beauty. D-I-Y beauty is a great way to spend time on ourselves! Put on a facemask, do your makeup, paint your nails.

Fetching the inner girly in you invariably sets a smile on our faces; doing these little things forever makes us nostalgic about our childhood days.

4. Optimize in Spirituality and Mental Health

Discovering your spiritual carriage can accommodate you to be in a more beneficial cerebral volume. Take time from your day, preferably in the daylight, or simply before bedtime, to read and study who you are, your holy scriptures.

Religious books are assumed to hold all the explanations of our mortal perplexities. Optimality in spirituality and devoutness is a transcendental approach to build your self better mental health.

5. Girls Night Out

Being with "your people" ever fits for the most tranquil space. Going out with your girls, and spending time with them, is a transcendent approach to stimulate communication and connection.

A connection is a fundamental ingredient in optimizing self-care. Connection and Communication help us articulate and verbalize our feelings and emotions in the most constructive style. Plus, who doesn't want a night out with their girls – Cheers!

6. Invest in Your "Thing"

We all have things that we love to do during our leisure, but at times work steers the action, and we become unable to do what we enjoy, whether it be art, music, or even dance.

Take time out of your day and invest in your "thing", in what makes you, YOU. Taking timeout for your crafts is an excellent practice for stress relief. Self-care always cheers you for being you and doing those little things that make you happy!

7. Heal

Last but certainly not the least, Heal. Healing serves as the ultimate gateway to happiness. Healing is not only a substantial chunk of self-care but also a necessity for achieving our abstract ideas of happiness.

Spend time reflecting and interpreting, what or who helps you heal. It's remarkably crucial to be there for yourself when you need you the most. Healing also helps you limit dependence on the presence of other people to make you feel content. It makes you a better person for yourself and the people you love and care about the most.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
