Healthier living is a big focus of mine at the moment. I’m not just talking about healthier eating (although that does play a massive part!), but healthier everything. Relationships with both myself and others, the way I approach life, my living conditions, etc. It all comes down to self-care! You can read more about the start of my journey here.
Do you find you get easily overwhelmed by the sheer amount that needs to get done? Nobody wants to come home from work and get on with the housework, and nobody wants to be the only person in the household actually bothering. I don’t know about you, but it makes me stubborn. It makes me not want to do anything at all, and just put it off. Then it gets to the point where there is simply too much and you burn yourself out. Sound familiar?
As a way to get started, I’ve made myself a list of 10 healthier living choices. They are changes I am in the process of getting into daily routine, and I think I’m doing pretty well with them so far!
More quiet time is possibly the most important one on the list for me. As someone who suffers from social anxiety, I need time to myself. Time to relax with nobody around me whatsoever, which can be pretty damn hard now seeing as when I’m not at work I’m usually looking after a toddler or binge-watching Netflix with my partner. No matter how well I know people though, and no matter how much I love them, I need regular time where I am completely on my own. Not only does it save my sanity, it also helps with my depression and helps me to manage my anxiety.
Below is my current starter list of 10 healthier living choices. What’s on yours? Let me know below!
