How should we help ourselves get a Mental Detox?
First and foremost thing to do:
Go Easy on Yourself:
You might not feel motivated enough to do routine things. Your work might suffer since you might not be able to give your 100%. I at times just keep looking at the screen and when I look at the clock hours have just gone by.
It’s better to just sleep it off. Give your mind the much-needed reprieve from burnout.
Follow Your Routine:
Due to mental exhaustion, you might not feel up to it for any kind of work, designate one task and just do it. Don’t forget to reward yourself for completing the task. Take rest just take one step at a time you need it.
Focus on Rest:
Do not deviate from your sleep-wake cycle, it’s very easy to spend a sleepless night or just keep watching TV or Mobile. Do refrain from that and just rest.
Share Your Feelings:
It’s very difficult to share your feelings, if you can’t share them with any friend or family then seek help from a counselor or maintain a journal.
Develop a Hobby:
Give in to a bit of enjoyment. Do what you like. Enjoy a few of your favorite hobbies or give yourself the much-deserved “Me Time”.
Don’t be too Harsh on Yourself Be Gentle on yourself “Self Love“
Happy Relaxing for all.
