Self-love has many benefits. I think it's one of the life satisfactions. We should give more positive attitude towards our life and encourage us to pick up the good habits. I love to have my self-love by doing "ME TIME".
Anyway, what do you usually do in your free time? I'd prefer to do something I love, doing my hobbies or things that make me happy, such: reading a book or magazine, going for a walk, simply having a cup of coffee or tea then daydreaming. We all know that self-love is important, so let's find what works for ourselves and completely let go for as-many-minutes-as we have. I do really thank God, because I have a supportive life partner who always gives me time to break from all the routine.
Here are some "me time" tips that you can do in your spare time:
Break from social media
I, my self, sometimes feel so bored with all the things in social media. Maybe unplugging all the social media for a set amount of time would be a good idea to let ourselves chill for awhile.
Take a rest
When I feel a bit tired, I'm going to get my self a rest. It's nothing wrong with having a nap. It's a necessary to break from a rapid routine. So, we need to take a break, it's also important to our mental health.
Keep in touch with family or best friends
I always love to get back to the old times, it remains so many good memories. Having a great friendship, relationship, and positive vibes is a good food for our soul. Grab your free time and call up family member or best friend that you really want to talk to. You can have chit-chat about whatever you want and feel the ambience.
Watch TV/ film/ serial drama
We need to entertain ourselves, I love to watch film or even serial drama and enjoy it. Yup! It's a very rare treat. Maybe, a little mindless “guilty pleasure” of having time in front of screen is not that bad.
You can write down your feelings, ideas, dreams, or whatever comes to your mind. For me, writing is a self expressing. It doesn’t have to be a regular thing, I do it when I want to. Writing also can be a self healing, I can evaluate or even take a lesson from what I've been through.
Do your hobby
What do you love to do for fun? Me, love to play some musical instruments, reading, and blogging. These all make me happy. You also can do whatever you love, such cooking or anything else, at least your feeling will be better.
Treat and make comfort yourself to have something you like to eat, such chocolate, ice cream, cake, or any other sweets, in order to increase your mood. But remember don't crave for sweets too much, we still have to pay attention to our daily intake of sugar.
Get outside for a run or walk. Home workout can be an option as well. Our health is a priority, it would be great making exercise schedule into our daily routine, because healthy life means happy life.
