Mental Health Tips for Escorts
Mental health plays a large role in the success of an escort. There are many aspects of the job that can lead to mental stress like rude clients, canceled bookings, time-wasters and burning out through overwork. You should make sure you're taking the time to take care of yourself and work on your mental fitness. Mental health is a huge part of being healthy. Here are a few tips for taking care of your mental health.
Reflection and journaling
Use your downtime to do some personal reflection. Think about yourself and what your dreams are. Track your feelings and experiences of gratitude and your achievements by writing them down. Reflect on what happened during the day, and note down five things you were grateful for and five things you achieved that day.
Add some coffee
Science relates drinking coffee to lowering depression. Grab a nice book, magazine, or do some study on a hobby that's unrelated to work. Remember, coffee doesn’t work for everyone. If it doesn’t work for you, it might be that the caffeine levels are too high so try decaf. If you don't like the taste of coffee a nice green tea works a treat and about a quarter the level of caffeine.
Plan a getaway
It could be camping, fishing, or a hike with some friends. The feeling of having something to look forward to has been proven to improve happiness for up to 9 weeks.
Work on your strengths
Find something that you are good at and immerse yourself within that activity. It is a great confidence booster that improves overall mental health.
Show some love
Remember that no man is an island. Chose some friends (just a few) that you can always count on and talk to when you need it. Close and quality relationships are the number one path to great mental health.
Get a good laugh
Spend your days with funny friends, take in the corny jokes and lines and laugh yourself out. Check out some good comedies and online videos that crack your ribs a bit.
Go off the grid
Going off the grid is a nice thing to do once and a while. Take a break from your routine, disconnect from social media, emails, and any other alerts, and spend some time thinking about yourself or doing something fun with a friend.
Have frequent warm baths
Warm baths are great stress relievers. Adding some Epsom salts into the hot bath will help soothe any aches or pains picked up during your escorting duties.
Identify what’s stressing you and accept it
There are two types of stressors; external and internal. The internal stressors include poor self-esteem, while external stressors include work environments. Take a moment to identify what is bothering you. Remember that it is okay to feel stressed. Take a pen and write it down on paper. Writing is a good way of letting go.
