Do you feel like you are running around from one task to the next and sometimes unable to complete what you wanted? Some call it Covid fog while others are worried about aging & memory loss (I might be in that group!).
Are you faced with too many priorities to juggle such as work along with daily cleaning, dishes, cooking, laundry, etc. and also taking care of others such as young kids, teens, partners or aging parents? Do you feel robbed of “me” time?
We so understand & care about our Beksan community. That’s why we’re sharing tips on how to create more time to take care of YOU. Also included are some gemstone suggestions to enhance love and support!
“Take Care of You” tips:
- Say no to things that aren’t important
Laundry, phone calls etc., give yourself permission to focus on what is most important. Prioritize and assess… choose what activities you can delegate. Gain strength wearing black onyx or carnelian; how about one of these rings?
There’s nothing wrong with asking family and friends for help! You’ll find that most people are happy to assist (even from a distance)! It makes them feel useful and important. Consider a piece of moonstone jewelry. Moonstone enhances intuition, promotes inspiration, success and good fortune in love and business matters. May provide the energy to ask for assistance!
To make life less chaotic, it’s helpful to calendar every single appointment, including scheduling time for yourself. What do you LOVE to do? Hike with a friend, a tennis game, shopping, alone time…Choose what makes YOU happy and block out time for it. Self-love is important, maybe it’s time for a rose quartz gemstone, the pure stone of love…for oneself, one’s partner, children, family, and friends.
- Keep a Daily Gratitude list
Writing down what makes you feel grateful can shift your focus and is encouraging. It’s a great way to take a break or provide a little boost when you look back on previous entries. Protection, good fortune, and spiritual insight is granted to those who wear sapphires. It’s a symbol of power and strength—but also of kindness and wise judgment. A valuable gemstone for these challenging times!
- Adopt “Stay Healthy” Habits
The healthier we feel, the more effective we work, and that gives more time for ourselves. Getting enough sleep and eating healthy will help you perform at your best and lift your mood. Amber is a powerful healer and cleanser of the body, mind and spirit. It also cleanses the environment. What about this amber pendant?
- Take 5 minute WFH breaks to stretch and breathe
Stand up and stretch your body to make you as tall as you can be. Then bend over and touch the ground. Stretch again. Try to feel your body and pay attention to your breath. This short exercise reduces stress and you’ll feel more relaxed! Blue Lapis is a stone of protection and is thought to release stress. It is calming, bringing harmony and deep inner self-knowledge.
Reward Yourself ~ This is the most important! After a job well done, treat yourself to something special. It could be as simple as getting yourself a self-care book, https://www.berkeleywellbeing.com/best-self-help-books.html, having your favorite beverage, or going shopping! There’s nothing like a new outfit, accessory, or piece of jewelry to make you feel and look great.
At Beksan Designs, you can find that pair of earrings, necklace, bracelet, or ring that will make you feel special! Or try a colorful scarf to spruce up your look.
We have lots of surprises for YOU this Fall and also offer styling tips as part of our free personal zoom shopping appointments. To schedule one, email Meyla: firstname.lastname@example.org or Nevra: email@example.com
