1. Set up ‘Routines’ on your phone - We have all been led to believe that multitasking is the key to getting stuff done but studies show that multi-tasking is massively ineffective and leaves to higher levels of stress and feelings of overwhelm. Try focussing on what really matters and set boundaries around those tasks so that you are able to complete them. Start by setting up routines on your phone, routines will allow you to block selected apps at certain times through the day, meaning your flow won’t be interrupted and will give you room to work on what really matters. Top tip - set one at bedtime too to force yourself into wind down mode.
2. Slow down by connecting with nature - Make the most of the summer sunshine and get outside. Our favourite way to spend time outdoors is gardening, it is the perfect antidote for busy life and it forces you to slow down and be patient. Surrounding yourself with beautiful flowers, fruits, or veggies and watching them grow can bring so much joy. Want to get started on your own gardening journey? Check out our Gardener’s Diary. .
5. Schedule in some movement. Incredibly obvious but is so for a reason! - Whether you lift weights in the gym, are training for a 10k race, or take 10 mins to do some yoga, whatever you do will have a positive impact on your mental-health. Exercise has also been found to alleviate symptoms such as low self-esteem and reduce levels of anxiety.
