10 Incredible Ways to Reset Your Mind, Body, and Soul

Nowadays the trend of life has been set in a way that all of us always live a busy life with very little time for ourselves. The daily grind is hectic, monotonous, and tiring. And this tiredness doesn't only impact our physical health, but it also affects our mental well-being. The repetitive schedules, boredom, and stress can lead to a state of slump where we feel sluggish and unmotivated about everything.



Falling into a slump once in a while is nothing out of the ordinary. Everyone experiences such a situation once in a while. Feeling stressed, anxious or depressed is nothing to be ashamed of. You just need some extra pampering for yourself to get your old spirit back. During the times you don't feel much like yourself, you need some sort of self-care routine to reset your mind, body, and soul. These are the times you need to slow down a bit and get yourself back on track.\

But the need for a self-care routine is often overlooked by many though it is as important as any other duty, be it in personal or professional life. So how will you go about it? What can you do to effectively reset your mind, body, and soul and return to the routine with full energy? Here we have discussed 10 ways that can help you achieve a healthy lifestyle.

  1. Set a Routine: When life seems chaotic and overwhelming, then you must try to restore some order. And you can start doing it first by setting up a routine for yourself. To do that, first prepare a to-do list for the day on a diary or planner app. Then start prioritizing your tasks and decide how much time you need to accomplish each task. Prepare your routine according to those details. Beware of overdoing things. Remember you are setting up a routine for yourself because you want to stay motivated to finish the tasks on time and not to overwhelm yourself more than you already were before.

 

  1. Do Regular Exercises: The best way to reset yourself is to commit yourself to regular exercise. Physical exercise is a great way to stay physically fit and mentally refreshed. If you are someone not used to doing workouts, it may seem exhausting for the first few days. But after those days, things get easier and you start to enjoy the cardio burn. Indoor exercise is great, but you can achieve even greater results if you can go outside to work out. If you don't have a backyard to the lawn at home, maybe you can hit the nearby park for your morning workout session. If you are not inclined to do anything intense, then even 30-minute cardio will also do wonders for your health.

  1. Try Meditation: When you feel anxious, stressed, and losing focus on things that are important to you, you need something to ground yourself with. And the practice of meditation can be of huge assistance in times like this. Mindful Meditation helps to calm the chaotic mind, increases focus, and helps you develop a positive outlook on everything around you. So in short, the practice of meditation improves your mental health exponentially. You can try various apps to guide you with starting meditation. Start with short 5-minute sessions to build the habit first and then you can eventually increase the time.

  1. Eat Healthily: Instant food and junk food are undoubtedly yummy and hard to resist. But unfortunately, they are pretty harmful to health, especially if you eat such things regularly. And if you want to live a healthy life, then you need a balanced and healthy diet. A healthy diet includes a lot of fresh fruits and green vegetables. Because they provide the much-needed vitamins and minerals to your body and improve gut health, and the digestive system. Also, don't forget to drink a lot of water throughout the day to avoid dehydration and other issues.

  1. Sleep Timely: There is a saying we all learned in our childhood, 'Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise'. That is advice not only good for children but adults as well. A poor sleeping schedule often leads to an unhealthy lifestyle and numerous ailments. If you are determined to reset your mind and body, then you need to implement a better sleep schedule as well. Don't stay awake till midnight and go to bed early. Avoid vigorous physical activity or contact with phones or laptops just before bedtime. This will help you immensely to get sound sleep which is optimum for a healthy life.

  1. Detox Your Body: Excessive intake of junk food and alcohol can build up toxins in your body that are very harmful to your health. To get rid of the toxins, you not only have to cut down on junk food, alcohol, and salt intake but also eat and drink healthy things. Try drinking Lemon Ginger Turmeric tea every morning. Full of antioxidants and vitamin C, this drink doesn't only detox your body but improves your digestive system and boosts immunity. It also gives a lot of comfort if you have a sore throat.

  1. Digital Detox: Take out at least one or two hours of your day to get away from all digital distractions such as phones, PC, laptops, Ipads, or MacBooks. Put them somewhere out of your sight and do something else. There are so many ways to have fun without those electronic devices. Put your creative hat on and enjoy yourself in an old-fashioned way. Cook a dish, knit a sweater, tend to your garden, or DIY a plain shirt. There are so many ideas. Explore your hobbies that don't involve gadgets. This practice of digital detox will leave a great influence on the well-being of your mind, body, and soul.

  1. Make and Nurture Connection with Others: Humans are social beings and they thrive on contact with others, be it physical or emotional. That is why the feeling of isolation or loneliness can be detrimental to the health condition of the mind and body. This can lead to depression and mental breakdown. To stave off such feelings, create and nurture more meaningful connections in your life. Contact your relatives and friends often, and stay updated about their life. Take every opportunity and make new friends. Go out for little hangouts and impromptu trips. Create a close-knit circle of friends who are reliable even during trying times. Nothing can be more precious than that.

  1. Pamper Your Skin: No matter how superficial it sounds, soft, glowing, and healthy-looking skin is an instant mood booster. When your skin shines, you also feel good and confident about yourself. Additionally, the feeling of pampering your skin is also rewarding. 

  • Scrub - Exfoliate your skin gently to get rid of dirt and dead skin cells with a sugar scrub to get back the natural glow of the skin. We love Beauty Kitchen's Juicy Watermelon Sugar Scrub which also contains essential oils that moisturize the skin.
  • Tone - Give your troubling skin a calming and soothing effect with a toner that will also give the skin a refreshing vibe. The Lavender Chamomile Facial Toner will be a good choice.
  • Moisturize - After scrubbing off dead cells, the skin needs a lot of moisture to keep it hydrated. The Rosehip & Hibiscus Daily Moisturizer from Beauty Kitchen is a very light, airy, and non-greasy product perfect for daily use.

  1. Be kind to Yourself: To achieve a healthy state of mind, body, and soul, this is the most important thing to remember and do. Always be kind to yourself. Don't push yourself too hard. Don't berate yourself if something is not working out. Remember to celebrate small victories and pat yourself on the back even if others don't think of them as achievements. Always give yourself words of affirmation, especially at night before bedtime,  that you are doing well and the next day will be even better than that day. When you get out of the vicious cycle of low self-esteem, you automatically achieve a greater sense of happiness. That translates to the improved condition of mind, body, and soul.
