We're always on-the-go these days. There's always another task to accomplish, an errand to run, a project to finish, or an appointment to get to in time. But when we're always looking ahead to the next task and stretching ourselves too thin, it's common to experience burnout. The easiest way to fix that is to focus on yourself for a change. Try one of these self-care methods next time you could use a pick-me-up.
1. Take a nice shower or a relaxing bath.For some reason, everything seems much more managable when you're freshly showered. Cleaning yourself up can lift your spirits and wash your bad mood down the drain.
2. Read a book.Whether you read fiction, non-fiction, or whatever sub-genre your heart desires, reading is a great way to relax. It's also easier on the eyes than squinting at a backlit screen all the time.
PS: If you think you don't have time to read a book, you probably do! Consider what you usually do in your downtime instead and see if you can replace some of it with reading. You just might learn something new!
