We are not machines and we cannot function on very little sleep. 

Sometimes we can spare a few hours here & there when, we should be sleeping, but reality catches up and then we become zombies.⁠

Being a zombie is not sexy and definitely not what is considered as self-care!!

So, you want to be taking those naps okay?⁠

You're probably thinking, how can I take a nap, when there are too many things to do?

You don't need to take one everyday.

If you can, great, if you can't, then take a power nap when needed!

20mins is enough to feel refreshed and ready to take on every little task ahead!⁠

TIP 19: MAKE THAT APPOINTMENT YOU'VE BEEN PUTTING OFF


Call me baby!

Hands up if you are the type of person who hates taking the phone to make an appointment? Especially one that you have been pushing back and back.⁠

I absolutely hate the dentist. Like, detest going so profoundly, that I will wait longer than necessary to have a yearly check-up. 

Yet, my dentist is so lovely!! She never berates me nor does she make me endure any pain! It"s just me and my phobia!!

My procrastination in making an appointment totally came to bite my back in the butt though!

I had waited for so long that I had to go into emergency dental surgery, because one of my wisdom teeth was pushing on a nerve and making me black out from the piercing pain! SO stupid of me.

So, trust me I totally understand how uncomfortable the phone can sometimes be, as well as going to the appointment.

But don't be like me and wait till you pass out from the pain or the stress the appointment itself! Get it over and done with.

This is just an example of when we push things back for too long, it can be too hard to get out of the actual situation, and it can transform itself into something way worse.

Remember that when you are overcoming that hurdle of making that appointment, you are also doing it for yourself!

So, do that one little thing that will be a great stepping-stone for the rest of your day / week / month …⁠ 

Sometimes self-care doesn't always feel good right away! Lol!

TIP 20: TOSS OUT ALL YOUR EXPIRED PRODUCTS

Throw out the excess, clean up the mess, say no to stress and live with less.

You're probably thinking that I have completely lost it, by asking you to throw things out - especially a few days before Earth Day, right?⁠

Well, nope, I haven't lost it completely - yet!!

The reason this is a self-care tip and that it is important for you is because you definitely do not want to be consuming something that is no longer edible, or using something that has been sitting on your shelf for over 6 months.⁠

I get it, you don't want to throw it out, because you paid an arm and a leg (and probably an eye too!) for it, but the reason you haven't been using it, is exactly because it has been just "there" and you're not quite sure what to do with it.⁠

You have probably realized by now that I try not to hoard and accumulate things, but I respect and get why some people do it, and I am not here to judge, but I hope that you will throw out that gunky-looking face cream that has expired for nearly 2 years, but you've kept it in your stuff because it looks pretty!

Trust me - once you get rid of items that you no longer need - worse if they have expired, we have NO excuse to be keeping them - you will feel lighter and ready to accept more things into your life.⁠

Some days are better than others, so if you are reading this post and it is definitely not a good day, then don't do it. 

But keep it in the back of your head, that throwing out things that are expired, is similar to a spring cleaning of the mind.⁠

And who doesn't like a clear mind or a purposeful mindset?

Think about it and when you're ready - start TOSSING!!!⁠

TIP 21: PREP A BAG OF CLOTHES FOR DONATION

Tidy Room, Tidy Mind

Self-Care Isn't Selfish. Don't Feel Guilty For Taking Some YOU Time. YOU Matter And Are Important! Check out elleash.blog for more SELF CARE TIPS.


In April we will be celebrating Earth Day, so it got me thinking as to how could Earth Day be associated with self-care?

Well, self-care is doing something for you that makes you feel good about yourself, so why not aim for the triple points?!

If you are able to prepare a bag of your old clothes and donate it to charity, you are not only doing something for yourself, but you are also helping out the planet a little bit too!⁠

We all know that the state of our planet is quite deplorable, and one of the things that this Covid-19 virus has taught us, is that Mother Nature is taking back what is rightfully hers - and that is her home!

She is breathing better, her eyesight is clearer and she seems happier with her animal guests coming back out to play!⁠

By not using our cars to potentially buy more items, by not having factories pollute as much, our Earth is feeling the benefits of this virus! ⁠

Of course, I feel for the people that have lost their jobs and that are cursing this virus.

I totally get it!

However, I am not here to proclaim any solutions to the financial s**t many people are in, I am here to provide just a few self-care tips that are going to be beneficial to you and for our planet.⁠

That bag of clothes that you will donate, will go to several people who need them and you will have done a self-care act for you and a kind act for our planet.⁠⁠
