Create room for self-care with our storage Bicester

Self-care has been clinically proven to be good for us but still, so many of us forgo it. We all need to make the time and space to do more. Our storage in Bicester can help you.

When most of us think of self care we think of it as being a luxury. Some of us even think of it as being selfish! But it is in fact extremely important for us. 

Why is self-care important?

Self-care has been clinically proven to be beneficial to us by reducing or sometimes even eliminating anxiety and depression, reducing stress, improving concentration, minimising frustration and anger, increasing happiness, and improving energy. We could go on but we imagine that you get the picture – self-care is extremely beneficial for us. 

So, why do so many of us not do any self-care?

As we have already mentioned, many people feel that self-care is a luxury, only to be done when everything else on your to-do list has been achieved. We live in a society that praises productivity as being of high importance. When asked what we have done with our day so many of us feel a sense of shame if we haven’t had a majorly productive day. 

Then, there are the many, many excuses that we find for not participating in self-care. The most common reason is lack of time. But self-care is much easier and often quicker to achieve than many of us believe. 

Here we will talk you through some of our self-care tips and how our storage Bicester will help. 

How to bring self-care into your daily life 

Before we begin we have to break the myth that self-care is all about bubble baths. Having a bubble bath is a great way to add some self-care to your life, but only if you enjoy bubble baths. The self-care you choose to do has to work for you. If any of the suggestions we say here don’t work for you, do not be discouraged. Keep looking for the things that work best for you because you will find them. 

A great way to start with self-care is to look at SAMSHA’s eight dimensions of wellness.  Although this was developed by substance abuse professionals, these eight dimensions encapsulate the areas of wellness that make us whole. 

The Eight Dimensions

The eight dimensions are: emotional, spiritual, intellectual, physical, environmental, financial, occupational and social. 

Self-care activities can help to keep these areas in balance and thus promote high levels of wellness and mental and physical health. 

Here are some suggestions for each of the areas. If you try something and it doesn’t work for you, pick something else and try again. Self-care is about making your life better, not doing things because you think you should.

Emotional – Journal, read, paint, listen to music, watch a film or TV show, garden, give someone a hug, have a good laugh or a good cry. 

Spiritual – Meditate or pray, be mindful, help others, be kind to others. 

Intellectual – Complete a crossword puzzle, watch a documentary, try something new, start a course. 

Physical – Exercise, eat a healthy and balanced diet, drink plenty of water, prioritise sleep, have regular dental checkups, go to the doctor when you feel unwell, avoid drugs and alcohol.

Environmental – Get outside in nature, go for a walk, garden, look at the stars, listen to bird songs, try nature journaling, clean your house, do some redecorating.   

Financial – Open a savings account and start saving, cut back on unnecessary purchases, be sensible with credit cards and credit of any sort. 

Occupational – Learn a trade, go to university and get a degree, spruce up your resume, learn new skills, start your own business.

Social – Spend time with friends and family, do things that you find fun, keep in touch with long-distance friends via Zoom or email, get out into the world. 

We imagine many of you are surprised to find that you already do some of the things on these lists! It is now about finding a way to bring balance to the other areas. 

Making the space with our storage Bicester

We are afraid to admit that we cannot give you extra time in order to do some self-care. We hope that upon reading how beneficial it is for you you are eager and excited to begin finding the time yourself. 

But, if space is also an issue for you, our storage Bicester will be able to help. 

Having the space so you can be alone to journal, read, meditate, Zoom with old friends etc. is possibly something you do not have right now. But with a good declutter and clean (which is some environmental self-care right there!) you will be able to find the space. And you don’t even have to throw or give away a load of your stuff. You can store it in our storage Bicester and we will take care of it for you.

The perfect unit

With our storage Bicester we have units available in a range of sizes. Starting at 15 sq ft, around the size of a telephone box, our units go all the way up to 150 sq ft, so no matter how much decluttering you need to do to get self-care ready, we will be able to find you a storage unit which is perfect for your needs. 

Safe and secure storage Bicester

When you store your personal belongings with us we know that it is imperative that you know that everything is fully protected. 

Each of our units is fitted with state-of-the-art security systems which include intruder alarms and smoke and fire detectors. We also have 24/7 CCTV around the entire Bicester facility. 

You can rest assured that, when you use our storage Bicester, all your belongings are safe, secure and fully protected.

Excellent customer service with our storage Bicester

Our Bicester store was our first store and it really paved the way for how we wanted to run our business and one of the most important things for us was to offer excellent customer service. 

We don’t want to blow our own trumpet, but with nearly 800 reviews on Trustpilot deeming us excellent and the amazing feedback we get from our customers, we feel it’s safe to say we offer excellent customer service. 

Bringing self-care into your daily life does not have to be hard or time-consuming. And if space is the issue, our storage Bicester is here to help. 

Take care of yourself by bringing some self-care into your life.
