10 Ways To Take Care Of Yourself When You Feel Like Shutting Down !

By

We’ve all been there: had a bad day at work,  and there is nothing in the fridge for dinner. It never ends. You feel like you will never catch up. Life is full of surprises. We can’t go back and we can’t predict the future.
You could be going through a tough time. Perhaps a recent breakup or a sudden move. You may also be struggling with anxiety or depression. If that is the case, it’s best to talk to a professional and get it properly treated. Causes of anxiety or depression vary from environmental to chemical.
Self-care is not something you do once in awhile. You need to get into the practice of taking care of yourself every day. This helps prevent burnout.
When you take care of yourself, you feel better about yourself, and it shows. Your family and friends will also notice.
Here are 10 suggestions on how to take care of yourself, so you won’t shut down:
1. Sleep on it.

You really need a good night’s rest. This will allow your body and your mind to revive.

2. Talk it out.

Call a friend or family member and talk about how you are feeling. Wait for their feedback.

3. Take a self-care day.

Call in sick, relax, and play during the day. Stay away from electronic gadgets. They will only make you feel like working.


4. Stop saying "yes" when you mean "no".

This will help with your self-care plan. Say "no" to extra obligations and chores, or better yet, delegate them.

5. Re-read your favorite books from childhood.
Spend time reminiscing about the good times from your childhood. It’s easy to remember the negative, so start remembering the positive.
6. Go to a museum.
There are some gorgeous pieces of art out there. Spend the day there and leave your phone at home.
7. Ask for help.
From whoever you need it from. Your boss, spouse, co-worker, pastor or friend. This does not mean you are weak.
8. Breathe slowly.
Stop and take a few deep breaths. Breathe into a count of four and out to a count of six.
9. Go for a walk.
You sit for most of the day and it’s usually under fluorescent light. Get out in the sunshine. You’ll love the benefits of Vitamin D.



10. Stay hydrated.When was the last time you had a glass of water? Water is good for your body and your brain.
