SELF CARE FOR EVERYONE
By PW Nutritionist Grace Scott
Self-care is a trending topic, with more people realising the importance of taking time out to 'chill' and learning that having a relaxing day is OK! It is easy enough to tell you to unwind, but sometimes it is not easy to incorporate a good self-care routine into the midst of your work and daily life tasks. Leaving us neglecting our own internal wellbeing! Therefore, here at PW HQ have put together our favourite ways to practise self-care during the day and we thought we’d share these with our Protein World Community. Why not give them a try - you have nothing to lose!
“Exercise is key for me, a lunchtime workout keeps me motivated and gives me half an hour away from my desk”
– Lara, New Product Developer
“Turning up the tunes and having a dance is the ultimate de-stressor”
– Aleena, Nutritionist
“I like to unwind after a day working from home with a puzzle or board game with my housemates”
– Sagar, Graphic Designer
“High protein snacks keep me full to avoid boredom snacking while working from home!”
– Sam, Head of Retail
“Half an hour yoga after work helps me switch off from the day so I can enjoy my evening”
– Emma, Head of Brand
“FaceTiming a friend or family member really helps me feel connected to people, you can share a glass of wine over video chat right?”
– Ellie, Customer Relations Manager
“I find having something to look forward each day makes me feel good, even if it’s small! Like walking my dog with my partner on our outing of the day”
– Anna, E-commerce Manager
So, there you have it, straight from the PW team - easy simple steps to a better self-care routine! Incorporate the time you need to switch off, breathe and disconnect from the workday. Whether your thing is by doing a home workout like Lara, yoga like Emma or if like me, you just like to watch a film with whoever is in your household, anything goes!
Incorporate your self-care mechanism into your daily work routine, prioritise sleep (7-9h is optimal for most adults) and don't forget to nourish your body well! Keeping up to date on your vitamins and minerals will do wonders for your mood and concentration - a simple self-care mechanism, and if you feel like your diet could do with some improvements why not try our Multi Vitamin capsules to give you an extra boost!
Now is the time to run a bath, pour (just one) glass of wine, and read that book you’ve always wanted to read! You can even bake those sweet treats too – courtesy of Protein World.
