10 Simple Ways To Reset Your Mind, Body, And Soul

We've all been stuck in a rut before, but do you know how to get yourself out of one? Try this simple plan to reset your mind, body, and soul!

We’ve all been stuck in a rut before. Whether it’s because we’re lacking motivation, stressed out and tired, or bored of the same old routine day in and day out, getting stuck is an inevitable part of life. Sometimes we just fall off the bandwagon and begin to feel a little discontent with the way things are going.

We've all been stuck in a rut before, but do you know how to get yourself out of one? Try this simple plan to reset your mind, body, and soul!

Maybe you’ve hit a wall on a project, or maybe you haven’t been eating well and now you feel sluggish all the time. Or perhaps you’ve fallen into the comparison trap, and you’re wondering why your life isn’t as interesting as someone else’s.

PSA: It’s okay to feel discontent. Truly it is. No one is ever going to feel content with their life 100% of the time.

What’s important is that you have the tools you need to get yourself un-stuck whenever you need to.

I’m a big believer in taking care of your mind, body, and soul every single day, and my technique for getting out a slump is to focus on doing things that are going to improve those areas of your life. Once you give your mind, body, and soul the attention they deserve, you’ll feel refreshed, rejuvenated, and more content with your life.

How does one do this? Well, if you’re in a rut and feel like you just need to press the reset button, here’s how to get your mind, body, and soul back on track!

10 Simple Ways To Reset Your Mind, Body, And Soul

We've all been stuck in a rut before, but do you know how to get yourself out of one? Try this simple plan to reset your mind, body, and soul!

1. Drink lemon water first thing.

Start your mornings off with a big dose of hydration by drinking a cup of hot water with a slice of lemon. Lemon water helps rejuvenate dull skin, and also helps you digest food better so you’ll be less bloated throughout the day.

2. Do a self-care power hour.

If you want to start or get back into a morning routine, try squeezing in some good ol’ self-care with the power hour method. I have a whole post about this here, but basically you want to spend 20 minutes doing something for your mind, then your body, and then your soul. It’s the number one thing that gets me out of bed in the morning.

3. Treat yo skin.

Brush: I love dry brushing my skin before a shower because it gets your blood flowing, unclogs pores, and helps to remove any dead skin. Start at your feet and move upwards in long sweeping motions toward your heart. Here’s a dry brush I’d recommend.

Scrub: What better way to get your skin back into it’s supple state than with a good body scrub. I’ve been loving this Honey Almond Body Scrub from 100% Pure.

Glow: If your skin is looking a little lackluster, rosehip oil is an amazing thing to use on your face before bed because it helps even out skintone and creates a glowing complexion. Try this Organic Rosehip Oil from Teddie Organics!

  1. I just recently discovered your blog & I’m honestly so glad I did! :) Absolutely loved this post, you mentioned some really important points here. For me whenever I’m feeling down, stressed out or I’m in a rut 4 & 9 work best for me to get back on track. There’s nothing better than a refreshing walk to get some air & clear out your head x

  2. Okay, so I’m pretty much in love with your idea about a self-care power hour. That is such a simple idea, but it makes so much sense! There is always time to love on yourself for an hour. This whole post is just wonderful. <3

  3. Awesome post, love it! I’m good on 7, but need to get heaps better at 6…. fruit and veg have been sadly lacking in my life lately. I’ve tried dry brushing before but didn’t persist….I must get back to it. Love a good coconut scrub! Linda.

      1. All these things are essential to have in your life I believe but I try to make all these changes at the same time it becomes to much so i dont end up doing any so the key point to me in this is 1 change at a time or just a couple. 👍👍

  4. I love this. So much. These are such easy things to do, and I can see exactly how each one would benefit my whole self. I have been a huge proponent of just getting your butt outside for a few minutes since I landed my first desk job (after being a classroom teacher) a few years ago. Now I’m looking for a new gig and building a blog, and I still practice this—especially when the days are discouraging! Now, about the skin care… yep, that’s the next step. Thanks for this! :)

  5. What a great post Catherine!! I loved it – and I kind of needed it just now because I’ve been in a little bit of a big rut this past weekend. Your post made a lot easier to look on the bright side just now. Thank you so much for it. And I agree with every tip you gave. Especially the lemon water – I’ve been doing this for probably over two years and I just love it <<3
    Have a fantastic start into the new week!

  6. I love this post and I feel like maybe a lot of people are feeling this way because just yesterday I wrote a post called “How To Get Out of a Major Funk” and a lot of the points we made are similar! I really like the self care power hour idea, I feel like I sometimes do that intuitively and don’t even realize it.


  7. Decluttering (or just cleaning/tidying up in general) is a HUGE thing for me. I get subconsciously stressed out when there is too much “stuff” piling up around me, online, etc. Once I purge the necessary items or distractions, I can really relax and focus on important tasks much better.

    This is a great list, Catherine! :)

  8. I love these ideas! I recently started drinking lemon water in the morning and have been so surprised at what a difference it has made in my day. I still can’t even believe I’m saying this, but it’s enabled me to jump start my day without coffee. It’s amazing!

  9. Thank you for a helpful post, and especially rare is to find one without ads cluttering it up. This really lends to the whole realaxing vibe of self care I was looking for tonight!

  10. I love this especially upping the fruit and vegetable intake. Most people don’t realize that the food that we eat have a great effect on the way we feel!

  11. Hi Catherine,
    Just came across your blog, as I have started my own. I love the part about clearing the clutter, I have been doing this lately and I think this must be the most underrated tip and it is free!

  12. Hey, there! Self-care is such an important part of our wellness. I also love daily affirmations because they help me balance at one thing at a time. To explore new places – it definitely keeps me alive! 💗

  13. I really needed this post…. I love everything you have advised and will try everything… I honestly feel better seeing all these comments to know that many people are just like me and need to hit that reset button every now and then… Thank you!

  14. Thank you for this. I really needed some ways to reset my life and self care. I’m going through some stuff and your post came up<3 thank you.
