Personal wellness elevates daily life: mini self-care tips



  1. Dress up in your fanciest outfit, even if you have nowhere to go. Put on something special, do your hair and makeup and make yourself feel fancy. Being dressed up will make you feel more put-together than lounging around in pajamas, and it might even motivate you to get more work done.
  2. If you’re feeling over- whelmed, try stepping away from your work for a bit and tidying up your room or workspace. Toss out stray papers, take those dirty mugs out of your room and hang up the laundry that’s been lying around for a week. It will make you feel productive while letting you take a break from studying. Plus, you’ll have a more organized environment to come back to, which will help you feel less stressed.
  3. Listen to some of your favorite music. Some cheerful tunes can be an instant pick-me-up and a great distraction from stressful work. Plus, dancing along to some music can serve as good exercise when you don’t have time to get to the gym.
  4. Take a short walk outside. Fresh air and a change of pace can be refreshing and help clear your head before getting back to studying. Walking can also be good exercise and help you get blood pumping in your body. Pop in your earbuds and walk around the block for a quick study break, and you’ll come back feeling refreshed and ready to get back to work.
  5. Treat yourself to something you’ve been wanting for a while. Whether it’s taking a trip to the movies, baking some delicious cookies or buying yourself a new notebook, giving yourself a reward for all of your hard work can help make you feel hap- pier and less stressed out. You deserve to take a break and enjoy yourself, even during the most stressful times of the year.
  6. Bring nature into your study space by keeping a plant on your desk. Even if you don’t have the opportunity to go outside, keeping a plant in your room can make you feel more relaxed. Plants will bring oxygen and water into the air, purify it, and generally de-stress you by tying you back to nature. Also, try opening your window to let some light and fresh air into your space.
