    Whether it’s carving out a space of your own in a crowded house, or giving yourself some headspace when you’ve had a tough day, The Surgery this week is all about how to self-care and feel better.

    How do you take time out when you need a break from the world? Do you practise self-care? Do you meditate?

    I love going for a long run or going to the gym to give me some time away from everything. Exercise is actually amazing for you to gather your thoughts, even if you go for a walk

    I love having a bath and reading a good book to escape from it all.

    Play guitar and sing. It's the only thing that distracts me completely.

    Depends tbh.
    Sometimes i just switch everyone off but tbh talking to people usually makes me feel better although i do think there is such a thing as talking to much and you get tired of the question 'how are you' etc
    The best thing that I love doing is listening to my music in the forest and then running down this grassy bank it is just great

    I generally listen to up beat songs and dance like an idiot.

    I usually write a facebook status declaring me MIA for a particular timeframe, I put my phone on do not disturb mode, lock my front door and make full use of my speakers or book shelves for a few hours or more.

    Some people think of me as ignorant, selfish or just odd but that's not my intention. I just need the time to zone out and let go of any niggling everyday issues and stress, I'm much more pleasant after!

    When I need a break or a time out, I would even sign myself off work, if it is too tough. Otherwise I am reading books or drawing pictures to come to a rest. Do that in my own walls, that is a good relaxation.

    Doing sports helps a lot too.*

    People always said that reading does not enable to relax only, but also to disappear from real life for a while and to come into a world of your own imaginations. Would you say this goes for you too?*

    (Unhealthily) I usually curl up in bed with a box of beer (or G&Ts) and stick on a tv show!! Sometimes I read, if it's a really good book, that can definitely just help me forget about the world!

    I listen to some calming music or just hit a punchbag to let my anger out if I'm angry or pissed off ❤️ But I mostly try to stay happy because that's the best thing in everyone's life!☺️ Even though I'm the only teen/child in the house apart from my parents my mum still doesn't let me have any time to myself. 😁

    I guess this goes for me too. But whenever I am feeling good, I need to dance. That is why I don't care, the feeling is the main point. Am I right? *

    Something like that, but in addition to that I asked you whether reading awakes a creativity in you.*
