Self confidence is extremely imortant in this 2019 world full of speed and stress. Let’s be honest, there are a ton of tasks that we all need to take care of during our day. Maybe you’re just getting started with your store, so you’ll need to take care of your design, find products to sell, and then come up with marketing campaigns so you can promote your business. And it doesn’t end once you’ve setup your store either. Maybe you’ll need to take care of some customer service issues, manage your social media accounts, or test out some new marketing channels. Like we said – tons of tasks. And if you wake up in the morning facing a huge list of stuff which you need to deal with, how do you know where to start? It’s just like the saying goes: “by failing to prepare, you’re preparing to fail.” Incorporate a slot into your morning routine just to plan out your daily tasks.
The most important thing isn’t what time you wake up – it’s getting in tune with your body’s clock. According to Sleep.org, your body actually knows what it should be doing and when. Don’t force yourself to be part of the 5 am club if you can’t fall asleep before midnight. Getting enough sleep and waking up when your body is ready will lead more often to a productive day than forcing yourself out of bed hours before your brain is ready—that’s a recipe for burnout. Plus, the habit won’t last long. If you’re not a morning person, you can’t force it and your body will only work with you for so long before it says “no more!”
Most successful people tend to include their ‘me-time’ in their morning routines. For some, that means spending time with their family and for others spending time alone. In either way, with a clear and fresh mind, this is a great time to be yourself and enjoy the moment. Read additional details at Mindfulness.
Stop waiting – dress your best right now. This one is so important! Whether it’s losing weight, moving, graduating or something else: Your life is not on hold just because you haven’t achieved all of your goals yet! Never wait until some arbitrary point in the future to embrace your style and dress exactly how you want to dress. Separate your body hang-ups from your style. Don’t allow body hang-ups to keep you from embracing your personal style. Because regardless of whether they are valid (probably not), they are beside the point. Being mega beautiful is not a pre-requisite to having great style, plus dressing in tune with your own personal style will improve your overall confidence and thereby also how you feel about your appearance.
Furthermore, it has been proven that natural light brings a lot of benefits regarding our mood and overall well-being. Being exposed to natural light boosts your vitamin D levels – which is important for absorbing calcium and preventing diseases such as depression and weight gain, it makes us more awake – which does wonders for our productivity, and it generally affects our mood in a positive way – reduces the chances of suffering from SAD, better known as Seasonal Affective Disorder.
If you’re only doing something because everybody else is doing it but you absolutely hate it, the more likely it is that you won’t commit to it. The key in sticking to your self-care routine is finding activities that you love and that you look forward to at the end of a long day. To create a daily self-care routine that works for you and your lifestyle, try experimenting with different things that light you up and make you happy. Read more info at Self-Care routines.
