Treat yourself and completely relax with the tips below!

Tip 2: Put during your me time off your phone

Every day, the telephone remains a major distraction and a major stressor. We receive a lot of messages and news throughout the day. Turn your phone off for a few hours, or for an entire evening. It doesn't matter if you don't respond to messages right away. This way you don't get distracted by everything that happens around you, but you live in the moment.

Tip 3: Relaxing

Now that your phone is completely off, you suddenly have time to do things that really relax you. You finally have time to get into your me time read the book you've always wanted to read, start a series you've been putting off for a long time, or try a new recipe. Cleaning up can also have a calming effect. Put on some music and give your bookshelf a metamorphosis, for example! You can read how you can do this in this blog: bookshelf ideas

Tip 4: Me time in the open air

Go outside! Whether the sun is shining or the wind is blowing, the outside air has a calming effect. Go for a walk with yourself and try to consciously enjoy the weather, the trees and the environment you are in. You can also turn on your favorite podcast in the meantime. You will see that you will feel a lot more energetic after this walk!

Tip 5: Positive Affirmations

Sometimes when you're not feeling well, it's important to think about the things you're grateful for. Write down these gratitudes so that you can see on paper how beautiful your life really is. Also can positive affirmations help you feel more energetic and really come to yourself. If you have written them down, hang them up in the house, so you will be reminded of them every day and this positive affirmation will provide extra energy.

Tip 6: East West Home Best

Ultimately, home is the place where you should completely relax. This is of course a place where you spend a lot of time. Therefore, invest time in the furnishing of your house, so that you always come home to a warm house. To make it really cozy at home, you can create a photo wall on your wall. You can decide for yourself which posters appeal to you. For example, choose a number of quotes to stay inspired or get inspired by our photo walls page.

Tip 7: Plan me time in

The biggest pitfall is not to schedule me time. Me time is essential to fully recharge. But where do you get the time? You can just schedule it in advance. For example, keep an evening or a few hours free in your agenda. These hours are sacred, dare to say no when someone wants to make plans at those moments. This way you will come back to yourself completely!
