Boost Your Wellbeing

Some people think that improving their wellbeing means spending hours and hours each day on self-care and spending lots of money on various lotions and potions to make them feel better. Wellness can look like that but it does not have to.


There are lots of little ways you can boost your wellbeing without spending a lot of time and money, so let’s take a look at some of them now:

Meditation

Meditation is completely free and can be done in as little as 5 minutes each day. So, you could be forgiven for thinking that it won’t do you much good, but you’d be dead wrong.

Meditation has been shown to boost mood, lowering symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression, lower the severity of pain, and help you get a good night’s sleep amongst other things.

I do now use the Peloton app as I have a subscription but the Headspace App is a great place to start.

So why not take a few minutes out to learn today? It could be the best thing you ever do for yourself.

Treat yourself to flowers

These days, you can buy flowers online in a matter of seconds, and they need not be expensive, so this is a really good way to boost your wellness levels when you’re feeling down.

Some companies even offer a weekly delivery / subscription so you don’t even need to remember to order them and you can always be surrounded by fresh flowers.

Why flowers? Not only are they beautiful to look at, but they also smell amazing, and they have been shown to have stress-relieving properties as well as being able to help you get a good night’s sleep. They are nature’s wonder.

Drink more water

Buy yourself a water bottle and take it everywhere with you. This simple act of self-care will help you to maintain your energy levels, avoid headaches and brighten up your skin, amongst other things. Make it more interesting by adding fruit or herbs to your bottle.

Take a walk

Even if you don’t feel like it if you want to give yourself a little boost, put your trainers on and head out to the prettiest local spot for a bracing walk.

Why? Because walking is a great way to maintain weight and basic fitness levels. It is also great for boosting your mood because it will get the endorphins pumping around your body.  If you do it in nature, you will reap the stress-relieving reward of the natural world too.

Walking round the river is one of my favourite things to do when I’m not feeling great. It’s easy to forget how beautiful everything is, especially when you haven’t ventured out for a while.

Spend time with loved ones

Spending time with loved ones who care about you, and make you laugh, is one of the most basic forms of self-care there is. It will help you to fight such illnesses as anxiety and depression while boosting your mood and helping to keep loneliness at bay, so what are you waiting for?

Clean up 

Cleaning your home might seem like a nightmare rather than something good you do for yourself, but there is no denying that when your home is clean and tidy, your mind feel more relaxed and you are more able to enjoy your surroundings.

We aren’t talking a full blown top to bottom spring clean but even just rearranging your desk, wardrobe or dressing table can just help you feel less cluttered in your mind.

You don’t have to make the place perfect, but make it nice and you will not regret it. 

I hope you have found this post useful and feel free to share it with anyone you think may benefit.
