Self-Love in Just 5 Minutes? You Deserve It!

The New Year calls for new goals and resolutions. If you’re coming up blank with a resolution, here’s an idea: why not practice more self-love this 2024?

Sadly, many people still think that they are “way too busy” or “way too broke” to take care of themselves. But practicing self-care doesn’t always mean going on a vacation or booking a spa treatment. In fact, you can pamper yourself in just 5 MINUTES.

Implementing self-care benefits your physical and mental health. Sparing at least five minutes for self-love is good practice for your wellness. So, here are some quick 5-minute self-care ideas you can try at home.


All It Takes is 5 Minutes to Practice Self-Love

Brew Your Tea

A cup of tea relaxes the soul. Something as simple as a store-bought tea bag or fancy like artisanal tea can calm your nerves or energize you. While most people prefer coffee over tea, don’t discount this herbal concoction and its numerous benefits for productivity and mental health.


Practice Skincare

Self-care doesn’t always have to be a spa visit. It can be something as simple as prioritizing our hygiene needs.

A 5-minute skincare routine should do the trick! Start by removing excess dirt and oil with your favorite makeup remover and Femme’s Round Cotton Pads. Gentle to the skin, these pads prepare your skin for a more thorough wash. Next, wash your face with a gentle cleanser for a 100% clean. Cap off the routine by applying moisturizer and a face mask!

Apart from giving your skin some extra love, this quick routine gives you time to breathe and relax – even if it’s just for 5 minutes. You deserve all the pampering!


Take a Quick Walk

If you’ve been cooped up at home for too long because of your WFH setup, go outside for a walk. This short break need not take much of your time. Take a walk around your block or your yard. Walking keeps your mind off things and helps you sort out your ideas. At the same time, if you take longer walks, you benefit from the following:

  • Stronger bones and improved balance
  • Reduced body fat
  • Reduced risk for stroke and heart disease
  • Increased muscle strength and endurance


Brain Dumping

When you practice regular brain dumping, you organize your thoughts better. At the same time, you benefit from better concentration, clearer head space, and decreased level of stress!


Prepare a Quick Snack

Food is always comforting, so don’t hesitate to eat when you want to. If you don’t have the budget to order, rummage for goodies in your fridge. Make yourself a sandwich. Eat some biscuits. If you’re going to be out of the house for a day, take some snacks with you! Store your favorite treats in Cheers Glassine Paper Bags so you can bring them whenever, wherever.


Drink Water

When we feel stressed or overwhelmed, we tend to forget to drink water. You should always try to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. Get some water in you to flush out the toxins and keep your body hydrated.


Dance Around the House

If you don’t have time for a workout, take a break by dancing around. It’s a great way to get your heart rate up and release any stress or tension you’re feeling. Put on your favorite song and dance like no one is watching (even if some of your loved ones are watching). If you work up a sweat after your little routine, use Tisyu’s Art Deco Facial Tissue to freshen up!


Even if it’s just five minutes, practicing self-love can make a difference in your day, as well as in your health. So, set your timer to 5 minutes and enjoy a wellness break. You deserve it!
