During challenging times, it is crucial to prioritize activities that make you feel good about yourself, according to Sukay. Even on days when you may not feel your best, engaging in routine activities that make you feel most like yourself can be beneficial. This could include taking a morning walk with a cup of coffee, working out (with a doctor’s clearance), heading to work (again with a doctor’s clearance), spending time with a friend, or relaxing at the end of the day with a favorite TV show.
In addition to sticking to your normal routine, Sukay recommends indulging in self-care activities that make you feel pampered and restored. These could include getting a manicure, massage, Botox treatment or even a wig if these things make you feel good about yourself. The idea is to do everything that brings you joy and makes you feel like the best version of yourself, especially during difficult times when you may not look or feel your best. By focusing on self-care and enjoying activities that lift your mood and energy levels, Sukay emphasizes the importance of doubling down on what brings you joy and making it part of your daily routine.
