A Famous Singer Once Sang, “You Should Go and Love Yourself”
While it may be out of context, it still rings true! We must love ourselves even during the most challenging times.
For most of us, staying home created a lot of changes in our routines. Drastic changes from waking up before sunrise for work to snoozing the alarm until 30 minutes before call time at 9 AM; from buying a cup of coffee every morning to learning to brew our own caffeine fix; from being all dressed up head-to-toe to not caring about whether we’ve taken a bath or not before a meeting; from preparing a week’s list of #OOTDs to almost not minding if we’re wearing a decent pair of trousers. The list goes on!
At the on-set of the pandemic, most of us would still wake up early because our body clocks have trained us to do so. We would still take a bath before starting a day’s work. We would prepare or order our breakfast. We would set up our work area and coordinate with our colleagues. We would get dressed up just like on a normal workday.
However, quarantine fatigue hit not so long after. Most of us started snoozing the alarm until 15 minutes before the call time (Just enough time to wash our faces and brush our teeth!). We would grab whatever food was ready (If none, then no breakfast for us). We stopped bothering to take a bath before meetings. Dressing up from head to toe became a thing of the past. One can be all too formal in a suit on cam while being overly comfortable wearing shorts and socks behind the screens.
It’s so easy to de-prioritize self-care when we’re home several days a week. At some point, we may have stopped caring at all! Even going to the laundry shop wasn’t a thing because we had to wash and iron our own clothes to save us from the contagious exposure. At some point, we may have become complacent in prioritizing self-love.
Despite the limited outdoor activities and in-person meetings, we must take care of ourselves first and foremost. Self-love is still the best and first kind of love (especially now in the month of love!).
Here are ways to pamper yourself once in a while:
Order your favorite food. Order that spinach pizza you’ve been dying to eat since New Year or that pricey yogurt drink. Dial that 5-digit hotline and give in to what you believe is the best fries in the world! Reserve that carousel cake you’ve been eyeing on since Christmas. Believe that there's inner joy and satisfaction when you reward yourself once in a while.
For the more health conscious, go for what will make you happy, contented, and guilt-free. A lot of restaurants and start-up businesses serve vegan dishes and keto-friendly menu!
Take a day off. Let your mind wander or get into your "nothing box". That is, a day to just take it easy. Read that book gathering dust on your shelf for over a year (guilty?). Finish a series everyone has been talking about. Jumpstart that business. Take it further. Take it one step at a time. Or just take it easy. Do whatever suits you best.
Set up a photoshoot for yourself. Yes, if you’re feeling a little extra, because why not? Pick your favorite clothes, make a shot list with different angles from serious to wacky. Don your favorite gown or cocktail dress… wear your long-coveted summer outfit ... or practice on that lady’s suit! Just project and get your game on!
