Taking Care of Yourself in times of the Pandemic
As the Covid-19 pandemic has developed to be an endemic - something that will persist forever, it's easy to become engrossed in the dynamics of this new reality. While doing so, we often overlook our inner well-being, making an already unfortunate situation much more challenging to cope with.
Perhaps you're working from home or on the front line carrying out important jobs. Perhaps you are caring for a family member or struggling while living alone. Perhaps you're unemployed or trapped indoors in a less-than-ideal circumstance. Life has changed for everyone, no matter who they are or where they are.
You're not alone if the stress of the pandemic is affecting your thoughts, mood, productivity and overwhelming you which is why it is important that we verse ourselves with self-care, mental-health and ways to cope which work best for us.
One approach to preserve a sense of peace and stability is to take care of ourselves. At Serrein, we encourage that you care about yourselves and your good-living. Hence, We're here to walk you through some tried and tested ways to take care of your amazing self and to remind you self-care is important even after the pandemic fades.
Taking care of yourself is more than just a day of pampering. It's more than a one-time coping technique like relaxing with a face mask or eating your favourite meal when you're unhappy. Taking care of yourself implies being deliberate in your responses to your body's demands, accepting what you’re feeling and deciding to do something about it. It implies that you must care for yourself in your own way to be your best-self. It's a multifaceted approach to taking care of your physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
1. Time-Management is Key
Maintaining a schedule provides order in an otherwise chaotic world, which can help you de-clutter your mind. Making a daily or weekly planner and managing time right will not only give you space to be productive, efficient but also, time to reflect and listen to your inner-self.
2. Meditation brings Peace
Meditation is a cornerstone of self-care that may help relieve mental stress and is also simple, efficient, and free. Meditation for each individual looks different- what helps you might be way contrasting than what helps your peers. Meditation helps coping with negative feelings like anxiety, sadness, and might even relieve some physical pain.
3. Light some fragrances
Fragrance is the single-most effective tool to reconnect you with your memories, it helps you concentrate better, calms your mind and is efficient in uplifting one’s mood. While fragrances are an effortless way to cope with some of the stress you might have, it is essential for you to choose a way to light fragrance that is non-toxic.
At Serrein, we offer Scented Soy Candles that based in natural wax and infused with fragrance oils that emit no toxins when lit. They are also sustainable, bio-degradable and cruelty-free.
4. Start a new habit of Journalling
Journalling simply refers to writing down and/or drawing in a diary what you feel at the end of a day, occasion, event, etc.
While you journal, you should make sure to jot down however you/re truly feeling without judging yourself or fearing what others will perceive of you. Journalling helps us verse with our true feelings and improves our way of dealing with our emotions.
5. A Balanced Diet means a Balanced life
It is truly said that a meal has more importance than we acknowledge. Trying to eat healthy and balanced meals are said to improve mood, internal bodily activities, and refresh the mind. Letting go of or trying to decrease the intake of unhealthy food can help you concentrate better, feel better and enthusiastic and also reflect in improving the quality of your hair, nails and skin.
6. Indulge in a Self-Care Plan
A Self-Care Plan is an intervention tool that will help you being organised and indulge into activities that make you feel better. Some of these activities are said to help you in connecting with your inner child through nostalgia. It’s recommended to take part in multiple activities that you used to like- Dance, Music, Art and the list goes on. It's a fail-safe, built by you, and packed with your favourite self-care activities, essential reminders, and opportunities to engage yourself in things that you left behind to catch up with today’s racing world.
Each day, invariably, you will find yourself looking at instances and things that left a lasting impression on you during these unfortunate times. However, we want you to remember that you are strong, amazing and life is God’s gift.
It is crucial to be grateful by taking care of it everyday. Taking care of yourself will provide you a measure of comfort, remind you that you are in control, and that in times of crisis, you have the choice to either be in denial or be your best ally. At the end of a long, hectic day, you should reward your sensory counterparts with the best of scents. We invite you to take a dive into the bliss of good living.
