Self Care Tips For Anxiety & Depression

A Daily Guide For Those In Need of Motivation, Ambition, & Determination.

We all go through phases of depression and anxiety, whether it be seasonal depression, being anxious before an important event, experiencing grief, loneliness, or becoming upset and frustrated with being "stuck" in our lives. What is our life purpose? What is our reason for being here? What is the point of getting out of bed? These are just some of the everyday thoughts almost everyone has at some point or another. Having been in the process of becoming a Mental Health Therapist, positive mental health and self-care have been a priority of mine, especially when it comes to helping others reach their highest potential.

What are you reading? When is the last time you read a book? Did it make you sad? Happy? What we read affects our mood. I challenge you to write self-love notes to yourself. For example, hide small notes around your living space, when you least expect it, you will come across these small notes that will make your day brighter. Create post-it notes that have positive affirmations, and place them on your bathroom mirror. Every morning when you wake up you will see these affirmations. Be aware of what your mind reads, and watch your mood transform once it's covered in positivity.

Who are you surrounding yourself with? This includes social media, what are you seeing every day? who are you following? Social media impacts our mental health negatively on an everyday basis. I challenge you to unfollow every account that serves no positive purpose in your life. This goes for everyday life too, remove yourself from the energy vampires that drain you both mentally and emotionally. Ask yourself "what does this person bring into my life" and if you can not find a positive answer to this question, chances are that person shouldn't be in your life. Surround yourself with positive people and watch your relationships with others and yourself transform.

What are you wearing? On your days off are you in your pajamas all day long? Let's change this as quickly as possible. Put yourself first, spoil yourself, take a shower, and do your makeup and your hair. It doesn't matter if you aren't going out to see other people, what matters most is how you are treating yourself. For example, when you have company, do you clean your house? do you present your homemade meals with extra garnishes? do you infuse your water with yummy colorful fruits? do you use your expensive china? Why don't you do these things for yourself? This is where you will realize a difference in your self-worth.

I challenge you to put yourself first. I challenge you to spoil yourself. I challenge you to create a life you want to live. But most importantly, I challenge you to live a fulfilling life, free of burdens, free of sadness, free of anxious thoughts, and free of depression. Let's transform your life in a positive way. Let's start now.
