Let’s start with the fact that watching movies and giving yourself a hot bath is relaxing but is a mere case of distraction, though distractions are, sometimes, needed but are never the cure. We are talking about self-care and trust me, it doesn’t come with distraction. It comes with facing what holds you back and then working on it. Well, that is not a secret, is it?
Self-care is a matter of ultimate joy, peace, and a sense of creativity while mentally, physically being present in the present. Tricky, not. Distractions either take you in the pleasuring past or delusional future, it is not what we are seeking, we are seeking SELF-CARE and trust me it always in the presence! Without further ados let’s get down on our topic and help your self-care, should not we?
We all are different human beings, granted, we have different sets of mind, liking, and choice. What I like is not necessary liked by you. So, my friends, I have listed more than required hobbies to get you down on the SELF-CARE path!
Creative Ideas for Self-Care
One of the best hobbies to start is blogging. Trust me, I was going through a rough patch of life and guess what got me out, blogging! Writing down what you have and helping people out even in the tiniest way is a big relief! My parenting blogs give me peace of mind by sharing my pregnancy journey with all other moms. This act of kindness helps other expecting moms. Besides getting creative, I have learned many technical things which sometimes I thought were impossible.
The best part of blogging is you can share your passion with the world.
Acting allows you to get what is inside you, out. You can express through scripts or character. My daughter joined the theatre class. She always pronounced the theatre as worshipping to god. And truth be told, it’s ecstatic like meditation. You would know its magic when you get in it. You sooth your pain and get internal peace after joining theatre.
As I’m a tutor and I had started the art of paper folding with my students. Before I never had interest in this art. But my students taught me Origami. Every Saturday we do origami as a fun activity. Usually, if you don’t like crafts but if you do the craft with your children, I’m very much sure you would enjoy the subtle art of Origami.

Theatre helps you to let it out. Let it out, ALL! So, I say, JOIN THEATRE, RIGHT NOW!!!
This is one another art form where we can express ourselves in through our dance. We can let it all out, and let the vibration in. The vibrations help us to synchronize with the Universe.

Connect.
Self-care is something we were never taught or forgot to imply in our busy lives. But it’s time we take time for ourselves, our body and our soul and the universe to vibrate together. The positivity self-care brings is immeasurable. So, don’t give space to anxiety or depression BECAUSE self-care is the new sexy!
