When life starts to feel overwhelming and you find yourself lacking the motivation and joy that used to come so naturally, it's a clear sign that it's time for a shift in your wellness routine. Taking care of your mental, emotional, and physical well-being is crucial, and sometimes we need to make adjustments to ensure we are giving ourselves the care we deserve.
One simple yet effective way to change your wellness routine is by scheduling time with a therapist. They can provide valuable insights and support tailored specifically to your current needs. Discussing your feelings of burnout and disinterest with a professional can help you gain clarity on what steps you need to take towards healing and self-care.
Remember, making changes in your wellness routine doesn't have to be complicated or overwhelming. Small adjustments can make a huge difference. Whether it's incorporating regular exercise into your day, exploring new hobbies or activities that bring you joy, or practicing mindfulness through meditation or journaling - these small shifts can lead to significant improvements in your overall well-being.
Take this opportunity to prioritize yourself and give yourself permission for self-care. By recognizing the signs that it's time for change in your wellness routine, you are taking an important step towards reclaiming balance and finding inner peace.
Wondering if you need a shift? Here are some CLEAR signs that it’s time to change something around and start talking with your therapist about what you’re feeling:
You find yourself lacking the same joy you usually do in the tasks or activities you normally LOVE.
You feel more tired and burnt out than usual. Oftentimes, this can mean you’re not cleaning up as frequently, not eating as much, and overall you might just want to sleep more than anything.
If you notice that your stamina is low, then it may be time to start moving your body or even switch what you eat!
You find it hard to self-motivate. Because of this, you might be struggling to make necessary changes in your life or even complete super important tasks.
If you’re struggling to know how you’re feeling, this is a clear sign that it’s probably time to slow down and revisit your self-care and wellness needs so you can be your best self.
Saw yourself exhibiting one or more of those signs? No worries. Here’s what you can do to take action:
Talk with your mental health professional about what’s going on in your life and seek ways to change it around.
Give yourself grace and time to feel what you feel while also being proactive about your feelings.
Take time daily to write out what‘s on your heart. Why? This can help you be in tune with your feelings and help you understand what’s going on inside.
Create a self-care or wellness routine that is tailored to your current needs. Our needs can change daily or even weekly, so it’s important that you keep that in mind. The things you did last month to take care of you may not be what you need this month. Understanding your feelings can help with this.
