Hey Self, Just Checkin In!
When was the last time you took a break in the middle of your day to check in with...yourself?! Yes that's right, you! We all know what its like to get caught up in our work and daily tasks, but did you know that just 5 minutes of simple self care can ease stress and anxiety, lift brain fog and help you work more efficiently and positively? We challenge you to take a couple mini self breaks throughout your day and ask yourself, "How am I doing?" It might sounds silly but what do you need in this moment, maybe it's some fresh air? A quick walk around the block? A glass of water or snack? Maybe you need a hug from someone you love.
Or try this breathing exercise:
Inhale 10 seconds, hold for 10, exhale for 10
Inhale for 9 seconds, hold for 9, exhale for 9
Inhale for 8 seconds, hold for 8, exhale for 8
Keep going all the way to 1 second each and then breath normally.
Go ahead and give it a shot! Start practicing some self check in self care, we know you will begin to see a difference in not only yourself but the world around you!
