After you wake up, just take ten minutes to do a simple warm-up-for-the-day workout. It doesn’t have to be intense and you shouldn’t be hard on yourself, the sole purpose of this is to relax. You could also do yoga! A great way to rest your mind and body.

It really doesn’t matter where you decide to walk, it could be in the park, the mall, down the street or even going hiking! Walking in fresh air clears your mind and just let’s you take a break from your problem. It might open a window to new ideas and new projects you haven’t thought of before! Better yet, you have a chance of meeting new people while walking, and who knows, maybe you will be really close!

Constantly staying in and not socializing is not one of the healthiest things, so go out with your friends or alone. Stepping out of your comfort zone is really beneficial to your mental health, as it takes bravery and shows a will for risk. Go to a place where you know you won’t feel entirely uncomfortable by, stepping out of your comfort zone doesn’t mean you need to feel bad and uncomfortable at the place, so as soon as you start feeling bad, go somewhere else.

6. Reading:giphy-73

Books open your mind, they let you soak in creativity. Reading also takes you away from reality, which might be exactly what you need right now. You never lose anything from reading, in fact it’s quite the opposite you gain a lot with expanding your vocabulary and imagination!

Having some time for yourself is really important and necessary. What’s a better way than having a nice relaxing bath? Put on your favorite music and if you have some bath bombs, pop one in and watch the colorful colors go in all different directions. Light some candles and turn off the light so it feels more peaceful. This is the perfect time for reading, so pick up your favorite book and read away.

8. Art:giphy (75).gif

One of the best ways is to express yourself through art. Art isn’t just drawings, art is something that makes you feel beautiful and inspired. Everything, actually, goes around the subject of art. Makeup, drawings, painting, sculpting and decorating are some examples of art. In your free time, do something that makes you happy and you will forget about the problem, I’m sure of it!

Have some time for yourself and don’t be too hard on yourself too. Hopefully this article helped you and made you more motivated.
