We all feel down sometimes. For some of us, mental illness and other life problems can make us feel down pretty often. That's why every girl needs ways to practice self-care when you're in a funk.
Self-care is an essential part of helping ourselves get through these hard times. But, let’s face it, self-care can be really hard. Not everyone has the patience or the strength to prepare a healthy meal, a special homemade exfoliating scrub to put on in a warm bubble bath, read a book, or accomplish an art project that you’ve wanted to do for awhile. These are classic self-care techniques, but sometimes simpler methods of self-care are needed.
So, I’ve put together a list of simple self-care practices that you can use in your day-to-day life to help you balance your mind, body, and environment when you’re feeling down. Here are the best ways to practice self-care when you're in a funk.
1. Make Your Bed
One of the best ways to practice self-care when you're in a funk is to make your bed. A made bed can make all the difference in improving the atmosphere of your space. It can make a grungy space feel suddenly clean, even if you do nothing else to tidy up. Making your bed also makes you feel like you have a little bit of control over your life. When your space is in order, your mind is ordered as well.
