The term self-care usually brings images of spa dates to mind – not that there’s anything wrong with that. But for a lot of us, self-care is about managing stress and striking a balance between work, play and rest.
Most of us have no clue how to meander these lines, and we rarely take the time to reflect on our habits.
To make things easier on you, here are four ways we practice self-care at Urban Beard:
Burnout happens when we push too hard and don’t prioritize rest, leaving us feeling anxious and completely overwhelmed. This level of stress can be dangerous. If this is you, stop what you’re doing before you have a breakdown.
What used to make you feel alive? While you don’t need a ton of hobbies, having an outlet beyond work is essential. If you can’t think of anything, ask one of your buds - we’re sure they’ll be happy to share their passion with you.
For some of us, that’s time alone to recharge. For others, it’s spending time talking with friends or family. Those of us who are more extroverted may spend every evening on facetime, never taking any time for ourselves. While those who are more introverted tend to keep to ourselves, perhaps a little too much, no matter which end of the continuum you find yourself at, be sure to prioritize a healthy balance.
Quarantine doesn’t mean it’s okay to let yourself go, bud!
When was the last time you gave yourself a proper head-to-chin cleanup or bought yourself something nice - like some new beard oil?
Listen, we know you miss your barber; he probably misses you and your remarkable stories too. The good news is that with a few tweaks, you can look and feel your best without having to leave the comfort of home.
