Self-care is no more a luxury but just an essential part of adjusting to the ‘new normal’.
The pandemic has brought several sudden changes to our routines, alongside restrictions on free movement and other precautionary measures. All of these can take a toll on people’s overall health.
Although you might have been working from the comfort of your homes for a few months now, you might be dealing with unusual challenges.
You might be at home, but you will still be at work!
Here are some tips to make sure you get through the crisis without dialing up stress:
- Dress to Impress (yourself)
Self-confidence can boost your performance multifold and in order to do that, staying well groomed is very important. Even though you need not step outdoors, there is no reason not to work on your appearance. Self-confidence can influence a person’s performance. It is not just a motivational perspective of yourself but a judgment about your capabilities to accomplish a particular goal. So, get dressed, groom yourself, and go grab that star performer award this month.
- Set a routine
Now that you have been allowed to work from home, it can make you more lethargic and make you binge-watch that Netflix series through the night. It can be tempting to stay in bed until the very last minute possible but ensure that you don’t have to go online first thing after waking up. Wake up at least an hour earlier to shower, get dressed, and not miss the most important meal of the day. Any lifestyle change implies that you set a routine and form habits.
- Instill social connection as a daily practice
Loneliness can be a killer and companionship can be the easiest source to tap into your happiness. Amid the pandemic situation, there is also a surge in depression, anxiety, and lowered motivation. But even during a crisis, there can be ways to stay motivated and happy. Close relationships are key to happiness.. Make it a habit to engage in more social engagement when it is a challenge to be physically close with your dear ones.
- Eat Healthy Lunches
Yes, don’t forget the lunch while working from home. Snacking can be your favorite thing now that you are at home all day. But be aware that stress can lead to unhealthy eating habits, which can in turn affect your waistline. Let eating healthy lunches be a form of self-care as it can nourish you well and keep your energy levels consistent throughout the rest of the day. Also, don’t forget to drink enough water.
- Pamper yourself in the weekends
Even though you might not be able to visit your salons or spas, you can use a mud mask or take long baths during the weekends. Working from home need not be seen as a hassle but as an opportunity for taking care of yourself so that you can start the next week with a bang!
