How to slow down and take care of our mental health

3/17/2022


Give yourself self-care at home after a day of work.


Remember the last time you rested and slowed down? Humans live in a system where we'll be always on the go, and we seldom take the time to relax and unwind. I’ve seen firsthand how engrossed we may become in our work schedule that we fail to take the time to just be.

Being busy became the norm for me once I began "adulting," and at first, I thought this was how it was meant to be: always on the fly, becoming pulled in various directions, your mind racing at a million miles per hour, and so on, that I did forget how to slow down and relax. 


I couldn't remember the last time that I was relaxed. I often find myself racing after a race and when there is an opportunity to slow down. I looked for another race and it had led so many wonderful journeys and at one point and even more, I searched and try to practice slowing down.



Why do we always busy?


We may be pursuing our objectives, managing our businesses, or just meeting our necessities. So, in general, we're really busy. But what else keeps us occupied?

Consider how much time you spend on Snapchat, Twitter, and Facebook, as well as playing video games on your gadgets, responding to e-mails, and watching your favorite shows. Granted, we sometimes just want to unwind after a long day, and certainly, emails must be answered.

However, consider how much time you'd save every day if you didn't spend quality time on either of those activities. Is it really two hours? How about five hours? Perhaps eight hours? Do you think you'd be as busy if you could have an extra five hours in your day? We occupy ourselves with things that are generally preventable and then marvel why we are so occupied.


How to slow down and relax?


It is critical for our really well mental well-being to take a bit of time to unwind and calm down after a busy day! Having the freedom to do all we want at the end of the day is a gift. This opportunity is not available to everyone. However, everyone should take a couple of minutes to unwind in the evening. We must strike a work-life balance in order to avoid burnout. You can't be doing anything all of the time. To offer your bodies and minds the rest they need, you must relax and slow down. So, when you have the opportunity, unplug and appreciate the small pleasures in your evenings and life. These are little pleasures. They also have the ability to improve your joy and well-being!

Here are a few steps which will make me feel relaxed after a long day of work:


Taking a Bath and shower

After a long day of work, one should have to take bath or take a hot shower can feel relaxed and make you also comfortable. Taking bath can play a big role in relaxing after a long day of work.


Take a massage

You need to do a massage on a chair or tell your spouse to massage you through this act all your pressure points will be pressed and you will feel relaxed after a long day of work.


Drink tea or coffee

As many kinds of research show that tea is less effective than coffee in reducing tension, depression, or burden, but green tea can do more than coffee, Green tea contains folate, which may also reduce your burden and feel relaxed.


Go to some seaside

I'm not talking about SM Seaside but a literal Beach Front or Sea Side of Il Corso in which you can stay and have some walk. It would be worth your while.

After a long day of work you want to be relaxed so you need to go seaside and see many people their relaxed and the environment does affect a person and you will be around relaxed people so you will forget all your unrelaxed thoughts and you will feel relaxed after long day work.

If you want to binge-watch your favorite movie or simply watch a movie. It's alright to watch and chill Just don't forget to put some limit on your screen time.


Read a book

Reading books have a high impact on personality, attitude and can increase your knowledge, Books can also disconnect you from the technology world, so after all-day work, you need to read books about your favorite topic and writer.


Make a mask for your face

It is critical for overall mental health to take care of the skin and treat yourself. And I believe it to be a wonderful way to unwind, especially after a long and stressful day.


Spend time with your pet

Set aside some time to interact with your dog or groom your cat because they've undoubtedly missed you while you've been gone all day. To benefit both of you, lavish them with love and attention.  Make this a special time for both of you. Don't try to bathe your dog or trim your cat's nails right now. That's not an enjoyable hobby, it's a chore!


With so many activities and plans, we had set for ourselves and our family Was there just a time you just want to escape and do these wonderful things and still feel guilty about having self-care. Don't be. Taking yourself is one of the most important things that matter to you. Give yourself that long, often postponed activities and you'll never regret giving into self-care. Remember, these things can be done at home and let you don't have to go to a far place to give yourself a pampering. So make this a habit and you'll thank yourself later.
