When was the last time you invested in yourself?
You might be thinking what do you mean investing in myself? I mean the investment where you spend some quality time by yourself and did not feel guilty about it. We are often frivolous to spend our time on others but when it comes to ourselves we lack the same enthusiasm. Perhaps one reason behind this could be because there is not enough time in the day or week for you to fully relax because they are always something that needs to be done.
In our bodies we produce endorphins, endorphins are the chemicals that are released in our bodies that cause us to feel good, by doing the things that nurture us we unknowingly release this chemical. As humans, we want to have this feeling on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. So why do we not do this often? For me, I love sitting at home with the candles lit and I go down the rabbit hole of watching Youtube and Netflix or blogging, I love the process of writing a blog post and sharing my knowledge and experiences with you. That feeling of joy that we reap should always be our attitude towards investing in ourselves overall.
Spending quality time by yourself doesn’t have to be hours on end, it could be an hour to all day. Below I have some examples of how you can spend some quality time by yourself tapping into the mind body and soul
-Listen to a podcast to inspire your mind
-Write your thoughts and wishes in a journal
– Declutter your mind
-Go for a walk in nature (listening to the sounds around you, how do they make you feel)
-Exercise ( yoga, gym, kick boxing, pole fitness, horse riding etc)
-Cook yourself a nourishing 3 course meal
-Explore your creative side
-Start that side hustle you’ve been putting off
-Learn a new skill by enrolling in a course
