We know the impact the pandemic has had on our overall well-being, leaving many of us feeling drained and lacking the motivation to see a clear way forward.
Here are some simple steps you can take to recharge your emotional batteries and ignite a sense of fulfillment, purpose and happiness to get you flourishing again.
Celebrate the small stuff.
It’s been a long time when all we could do was to celebrate EVERYTHING with a Zoom call.
Finally we can once again celebrate together. However it’s not just the big occasions that should be marked. Acknowledging small moments is also important for your well-being. It’s being called ‘savouring’ by Psychologists. Savouring is about appreciating an event or activity in the moment, sharing tiny victories and recognising the good things around you.
Create a weekly gratitude ritual.
Studies show that taking time to reflect on what we’re grateful for improves quality of life.
Set the tone for the day ahead by writing down a few things you are grateful for.
Maybe a weekly or monthly supper club with friends, taking it in turns to cook a meal for each other.
Practice some self love – book a massage, reflexology or acupuncture here with us at The Refinery.
Random acts of kindness.
Acts of kindness not only help others, they can also help you flourish.
Start by performing 1 act of kindness a day. These acts may seem small but can have a huge impact on others.
