When you are balancing classes, homework, extracurriculars, and a full/part time job, it can be hard to find the necessary time to look after yourself. The important thing is to make good use of the small chances you get during the day! I’ve broken it up into time chunks, to make it easier.

Two Minutes

  • Brush your teeth/hair etc
  • Wash your face, or splash cold water on it
  • Drink a glass of water
  • Stretch! (especially if you've been sitting down for awhile)

Five Minutes

  • Take the stairs!
  • Jumping jacks/squats (I do them all the time behind the counter at work!)
  • Take a break and eat a piece of fruit

Ten Minutes

  • Walk instead of bussing
  • Reapply sunscreen if needed
  • Take a power nap if you need one
  • Do a short meditation

Twenty Minutes

  • Find a short yoga routine on youtube
  • Go for a quick run
  • Take a longer nap
  • Write in a journal/ Notebook if that's your thing

Thirty Minutes

  • Workout
  • Do a full yoga routine
  • Run/walk around your block a few times
  • Take the time to prepare a special, healthy snack for yourself!

One Hour or More

  • Workout weights or cardio
  • Tidy your room/ office space
  • Catch up on other duties (to relieve stress)
  • Prepare a meal and make enough for a lunch the next day

As its summer in half of the world, I’d like to remind my friends in the northern hemisphere that health in the heat means drinking cold liquids to stay hydrated, wearing sunscreen to prevent burns and skin damage, and spending time in the shade throughout the day! 

Take Care of Yourselves!
