What to Do When Considering Some Self-Care and Reflection Time

To have reflection time means to slow down and take a moment to pause and allow yourself to consider who you are, where you want to be, what you want to do and when you want these things to happen. Sometimes, in order to be in your optimal state, you need to take steps toward building, regaining or maintaining your own physical and mental health. A great way to feel your best is to have a self care staycation that can bring you happiness, help you find some tranquility, and leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. This article is meant for you if you are considering self-care staycation.


Unplug and Unwind

The purpose of a vacation is to turn off and live it up, and similar remains constant for a staycation. Start by turning off your notifications or putting your phone on Do Not Disturb mode. Notify your friends, family, and colleagues that you will not be getting or reacting to messages. You will quickly feel at ease once you let go of the digital world. Do yourself a favour and try not to tune into your phone first thing in the morning. This is the time to create a morning routine that will set the tone for the rest of your day.


Creating a Daily Routine

You may be the type to wake up at the break of dawn, or your day might flow better with a later wake up time in order to feel focused and that is alright. The goal is to find a plan that works for you. Activities like reading, journaling, making a list of the day’s goals, or just getting outside for a walk, are simply a number of things you can do that will change your life for the better . As easy as it is to regress to old comforts for breakfast, do your best to keep it real. Opt for foods that will fuel your day rather than making you feel de-energized.
