SELF LOVE: 5 Ways Young People Can Incorporate Self-Care At Work In 2022

➡️ 1. Simply Take A Five-Minute Break ⏰️
Set a timer on your phone and when the timer goes off, stop what you’re doing and move away from your desk and sit down somewhere quiet. Close your eyes and take in a couple of deep breaths 🙏.
➡️ 2. Go Outside 🌲🌳
Studies have shown that getting outside into nature is one of the best things you can do for your mental health 🧠. Exposure to nature lowers stress, improves your attention span, improves your mental health and even can help you increase your empathy.
➡️ 3. Take The Stairs, Walk Around, Simply Move Your Body 🏃‍♀️🤸‍♀️
This one can be harder to plan so make sure to look at your schedule at the beginning of each day and identify one or two opportunities to move your body. The more you do it, the more you’ll find new ways to move your body 💪.
➡️ 4. Notice Your Eating And Drinking 🌮🥤
Get out a journal and for three days write down everything you eat and drink as well as how you feel an hour after each meal. After those three days, you’ll start to notice where and when you eat too much, not enough, or foods that make you feel sleepy or hyped up.
➡️ 5. Acknowledge Your Accomplishments 🏆
Start collecting email messages 📩, notes, and performance reviews where someone is singing your praises. Every time someone sends you a message that makes you feel good about yourself and your work, save it. Each time you start to feel down about work or wonder, “What am I doing here?” open up that folder and re-read all of those notes as a reminder of how much you’ve accomplished 🤗.
And how do YOU practice self-care at work? 😚
