10 Unconventional Ways To Help Yourself

So to further Help Yourself on the Path to Personal Growth and Fulfillment let’s consider ways to do that.

In today’s fast-paced world, taking care of ourselves a lot of times takes a backseat to our hectic schedules and endless to-do lists. However, practicing self-care and adopting unconventional methods can greatly improve our overall well-being.

Here are ten unconventional ways to help yourself thrive:

  1. Forest Bathing: Also known as Shinrin-yoku, this Japanese practice involves immersing yourself in nature, particularly forests. Research shows that spending time in nature can reduce stress, boost mood, and improve overall mental health. Checkout my short video here with Nature Connection Coach Hana Lee Goldin who offers the hottest tips.
  2. Laughter Therapy: Laughter truly is the best medicine. Seek out opportunities to laugh when ever you can, whether it’s through watching a funny movie, attending a comedy show, or spending time with funny friends. Laughter releases endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. More on that here from the Blossom Your Awesome Podcast.
  3. Embrace Silence: In a world filled with constant noise, silence can be a rare and precious commodity. Dedicate time each day to sit in silence, meditate, or practice mindfulness. Silence allows us to quiet the mind and focus on the present moment.
  4. Random Acts of Kindness: Doing something kind for others not only benefits them but also boosts your own happiness and satisfaction. Perform random acts of kindness, such as paying for someone’s coffee, writing a heartfelt note, or volunteering for a cause you believe in. How Random Acts Of Kindness Can Change Your Life.
  5. Color Therapy: Engage in activities that involve colors, such as coloring books for adults, painting, or even just surrounding yourself with vibrant hues. Different colors can have psychological effects, influencing mood and energy levels. I’ve tried adding color and I talk about it here – 10 Ways Creating Art Healed Me
  6. Dance Therapy: Put on your favorite music and dance like nobody’s watching. Not only is dancing a fun form of exercise, but it’s also a great way to express yourself and release pent-up emotions.
  7. Journaling: Writing down your thoughts, feelings, and experiences can be incredibly therapeutic. Try journaling as a way to reflect on your day, set goals, or simply unload your mind. I just recently posted this on my sister site – Julia Cameron’s Morning Pages
  8. Cold Therapy: Cold showers or dips in cold water can have numerous health benefits, including improved circulation, increased alertness, and boosted mood. Embracing discomfort in controlled doses builds resilience and strengthen your mind-body connection.
  9. Visualization Techniques: Use the power of visualization to imagine yourself achieving your goals, overcoming challenges, or simply feeling calm and content. Visualization can help reduce anxiety and increase motivation.
  10. Create a Vision Board: Gather images, quotes, and symbols that represent your dreams and aspirations, and create a personal vision board. Put it up somewhere you’ll see it everyday to stay inspired.

If you incorporate these unconventional methods into your daily routine, you’ll start to nurture your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Remember, self-care is not selfish; it’s essential for leading a fulfilling and balanced life.
