During challenging times, it is important to prioritize activities that make you feel good about yourself, says Sukay. This could involve engaging in routine activities that help you feel like your best self. On days when you are feeling down, it can be beneficial to stick to your normal routine, which could include going for a walk with a morning coffee, getting in a morning workout (with doctor’s clearance), heading to work (again with doctor’s clearance), spending time with friends or relaxing at the end of the day with a good show.
Sukay also recommends indulging in self-care activities like getting a manicure, massage, Botox or wig if they make you feel pampered and restored. The idea is to do everything that makes you feel good about yourself, especially on days when you don’t look or feel your best. Sukay emphasizes the importance of doubling down on activities that bring you joy and make you feel like the best version of yourself. By prioritizing these activities and indulging in self-care, Sukay suggests that even during difficult times, we can still find ways to take care of ourselves and feel good about who we are.
