I’ve made a list of fun self-care activities for adults for whenever you are looking for inspiration and joy in your life.  

When the Universe nudges for the world to change, the one thing I know for sure: do not resist. Internal resistance causes prolonged, endured, and intensified suffering in times of hardship. 

I always needed people around, always on the go, and always looking for the next party. It took me a long time to get to know myself, which eventually led to a lot of suffering. If this downtime makes you uneasy, I totally get it. Check out some of my mind-body-spirit ideas below to help ease your anxiety.

Solitude is a powerful time if you use it wisely. Some of my friends are even planning a career change and are undergoing a complete transformation. 

This downtime is the perfect time to do the things you have wanted to do for yourself. You can let go of the old negative energy that’s been holding you back, build a new practice that will improve your life, start a new hobby that will fulfill you, redesign your entire life, or be and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. 

It might be weird at first, but you will emerge from your cocoon as a beautiful butterfly pretty soon.
