Self Care: Let Go of the Guilt | The Wonderfully Made Podcast

Hey healthy bunnies,

I have gotten a lot of messages over the years thanking me for the reminder of self care, all the while telling me it is either not feasible or not realistic for them to put into practice.

I hear women and men of all ages list the things they have to do and who they have to do them for, with not so much as a mention of self.

How do we propose we get all these things done day-in and day-out without taking the time we need to recharge ourselves?

In this latest podcast episode, I explore what self care means and how we can let go of feelings of guilt associated with pushing back from all of our responsibilities and doing what is best for us.

4 Things You Can Do Right Now to Boost Your Mood

Hey healthy bunnies!

 

I am thinking of you. There are a lot of things that stress people out or get them down this time of year. It can be a rough time if we do nothing to combat the stress, anxiety and sadness– I know this personally. I am going to share 4 quick ways to boost your mood. I want you to have a wonderful and productive day.

  1. Go for a quick walk. Walking will give you an opportunity to stretch your legs, get fresh air, and get your heart pumping. Hormones which are helpful for boosting your mood are released when you exercise, but it does not have to be intense exercise. If you work in an office environment, it can be especially helpful to get outside and change your scenery. Even 5 minutes can make a difference.
  2. Talk to a friend or loved one. Though you may need to vent or commiserate, the choice is up to you. What tone/topic will best help you move forward with your day and leave on a positive note? Try sending someone a nice note to let them know you love and appreciate them and that you’re thinking of them. Reminders like this will help them and you! Life is too short not to tell the special people in your life that they are special and it is amazing how this simple act can give us perspective and make us more grateful.
  3. Listen to upbeat or inspiring music. The type of music will vary person to person, but music can really help. I never leave home without a pair of earbuds so that I can listen to music or even a podcast when I’m on the go or stuck waiting in line somewhere. This little trick can be especially helpful when you’re waiting and finding yourself becoming frustrated or impatient. There are duties we have which we cannot avoid, but a little music to lift the spirits can help. The music is also nice if you do not like the current ambient noise where you are, which could be causing you agitation or the inability to concentrate.
  4. Eat a snack. Yes, eat something! As your blood sugar drops low, your mood will as well. Make sure you bring snacks wherever you go so that you do not find yourself with low energy and crankiness. I love to pack fun and interesting snacks like the ones in my video on quick and easy snack ideas, but if all else fails– an apple or a banana will hold me over for about an hour.
