Working from home is not as easy as it sounds. While it has its share of perks (no more daily commute!), the line that separates our personal from professional lives often becomes blurred once we've turned our living spaces into working areas.
That said, it’s never been more important to make time for yourself now that you’re working from home. Treating yourself well and indulging in little treats will help provide stress relief and prevent burnouts. Get started on self-care by doing the following:
1. Take your time in the shower
Since you’re working from home, you don’t have to worry about long commutes; you can spend more time under the running water, cleansed from dirt and stress! Make your showers extra luxurious with ambient music, candle light, and fragrant bath essentials. Try a lavender- or a vanilla-scented body wash for instant relaxation.
2. Enjoy a DIY head massage
Give yourself a scalp massage and hair treatment all in one with the use of quality products like TRESemmé Detox and Nourish Hair Mask for a dose of self-care. After washing your locks, apply the mask to your hair in preparation for hair massaging. Use your fingers to stroke your head from front to back and apply some pressure on your scalp. Continue applying pressure in a circular motion before rinsing the mask off and drying your hair with a towel. It feels really amazing, especially after a long day of work.
3. Meditate or exercise for at least 10 minutes
Instead of watching funny videos or scrolling down your social media feed, you may want to try spending your break time meditating or exercising. These activities won’t cost you a cent and you can easily explore them in the comforts of your living room. Just spare 10 minutes of your waking hours to meditate with your favorite meditation app or follow a quick workout routine video. Don't forget to use a good deodorant like Rexona Powder Dry + Whitening Roll-on to help keep you fresh throughout the day.
4. Make time for skin pampering
Just because you're working from home doesn’t mean that you have no reason to indulge in your favorite personal care and beauty products. After pampering your skin with a moisturizing body wash like Dove Body Wash, apply your go-to lotion to keep your skin feeling smooth and bouncy. You can then spritz on your favorite perfume for an extra boost of freshness.
5. Learn to disconnect
Lastly, maintaining balance between personal and professional life requires conscious efforts. To pull this off, set up a work schedule, which would give you little pockets of break time throughout the day. Equally important and much more difficult is to learn to stop when work is over. Mute your office apps to stop receiving notifications and take the time after work to reconnect with loved ones, spend time with pets, or pick up a new hobby.
We know how much you love the hustle, but don’t forget to take care of yourself, okay?
