Home is where the heart is, but when leading a busy life and looking after those around us, it can be very easy to forget to look after ourselves. That’s why we’ve put together these top tips designed to help you get your life back on track by improving your wellbeing at home.
De-clutter your life
Clutter is the source of mess, and a messy home makes for a messy mind. Stay organised and try to keep on top of things at home. Whilst that’s easier said than done, there are a number of tactics that can be adopted to make the dreaded housework a little easier, and keeping a tidy home is the first step. Tidying Expert Marie Kondo believes that it is all about choosing joy, so think minimalist, and streamline your home-life. If you don’t need it: recycle it, and in time you will discover which objects bring added value to your life and which ones don’t.
Have a Mobile Massage
Mobile massage treatments are an excellent way to de-stress in the comfort of your own home. Whilst you might be making every effort to improve your wellbeing on your own, sometimes a professional Massage Therapist can offer something new. Consider trying a relaxing massage, and discover just how much this can help you unwind at the end of the day. Tailored treatments can reduce muscle tension and improve your overall wellbeing and state of mind.
Feed your body and mind
There is an age old saying which is that you are what you eat – and it is true that there is a connection between certain foods and our state of mind. Minimise your caffeine intake at home and take care when planning food for the week. Busy lives can lead to eating convenience food at awkward times of the day. Aim for regular meal times, and stick to a healthy, varied diet high in vitamins and nutrients. It won’t take long for you to see the benefits first hand, as a good diet will aid with recovery and sleep.
Find the right work-life balance
For many people, the workplace can be a stressful and tiresome environment. Try to avoid letting this spill into your home life. Make sure there is a clear differentiation between your work and home life as much as possible and avoid taking work to bed with you, as this can have a negative effect on sleep patterns. Try to relax fully before going to sleep, as a stressful night’s sleep can have significant effects the following day, leaving you feeling low in enthusiasm and energy.
Take some time out
Sometimes, we become so busy doing things for everyone else that we forget to take some time out for ourselves. Take a moment to breathe and take stock. Sit in your favourite chair or enjoy 20 minutes in your favourite room and just listen to your own breathing. A short spell of time alone can help you to slow down, enabling you to bring yourself back to the here and now instead of racing ahead at an uncontrollable pace.
