On Day 10 is the last in the Self-Care Series - Mental Self-Care
Here's 10 things to do to uplift your mental spirit and think and feel better.
1. Play a Quick Game Online or on an App
A quick game to perk up your mental stamina is a good start to your day too. Try games like:
2. Explore a New Language
Stimulate your mind with a new language. Try These Apps out:
3. Take a Screen Break for an Hour
Turn off all your technology and TVs and just take a mental break.
4. Read an Interesting Article
Look up something new about your field of work, a hobby, or just something of interest and read up on it.
5. Spend Time in Silence
We spend so much time in a noisy, hectic world we forget how much silence can be "golden". Get some headphones (noise cancelling if you can) and just go about in the quietness.
6. Take Your Time Eating Breakfast
We're usually in a rush in the mornings, some of us even skip breakfasts. Take extra time to get up early, make a great breakfast and actually sit down and eat it slowly. It brings a nice calm before our day starts.
7. Keep a Notepad or Document of all your Ideas
How many times have we thought of a good idea, only to forget it later? Keep a notepad or online document of all your ideas and go over them later.
8. Clean out your Email Boxes
It doesn't help you mentally when you stare at your computer or phone screen and see all those emails scrolling down into oblivion. Start cleaning out the Spam, unsubscribe from ones you've lost interested in and make new folders to sort the types of emails you do want to keep.
9. Enroll in a Class
Go and learn something new! I read a great quote today:
So if you've thought to yourself "I wonder how to....", go and take a class and learn about it.
10. Cross something off your "To-Do" List
You don't know how mentally satisfying it is to complete something and cross it off your list. Make lists of things you need to do today, this week, this month and complete it! Don't worry if you don't finish all of it though.
So, are you enjoying my Self-Improvement month posts? Do you have any areas you'd like to concentrate on? Please let me know in comments!
