Want To Practice Self Care And Wellness Everyday? Do This

Self care. It’s a term you see everywhere. Everyone is always talking about focusing on yourself and practicing self care. Some believe that self care is putting on a face mask and blasting music, others think it’s cutting out toxic people from your life. Self care means doing things that takes care of your mind, body and soul. It means engaging in a activities that promote happiness and wellbeing while reducing stress. Although sometimes media can portray self care as a silly, frivolous millennial past time, it’s actually essential for living a healthy, fulfilled life on a physical and emotional level. You can practice daily wellness and self care by:

Starting your day with exercise

It’s best to start your day with exercise because it promotes brain function, reduces stress, and releases endorphins that will put you in a good mood. It will also make you feel accomplished when you get a workout done before you continue with the rest of your day.

Making time for hobbies

If you’re all work and no play, you’re going to burn out. Life should be lived to the fullest and you can’t live life to the fullest if you’re not being intentional about your days and making time for activities that you enjoy. It could include going swimming, painting, reading a book, talking to friends, etc. Whatever it is, it deserves time in your schedule.

Eating delicious food

It’s not going to be everyday that you’re able to eat a 5 course meal. However, if you’re eating a plate of kale with two croutons, no salad dressing with a side of whatever was closest in the fridge, chances are you’re not enjoying your meal. You can eat healthy, nourish your body and still completely enjoy your meals. Take time to plan out your meals so can look forward to it.

Getting adequate sleep

Nothing will hurt your body and your mind quite like exhaustion. If you want to care for yourself and make sure that you have enough energy to pursue your goals and interests, you need to be well rested. Aim for 7-8 hours a night and be sure to shut down electronics an hour or two before bedtime.

Small, intentional actions done on a daily basis will improve the quality of your life. All you have to do is identify which actions make you feel your best. It’s so easy to get caught up in the desire to go, go, go. Take time to analyze what your daily habits are and if they are beneficial to continue. How do you practice self care? Comment below!

    i agree that self-care is very important. I start my day doing a bit of centre-ing through mediation. Not a long one; just 15 mins to get clarity and focus. Then exercise. I just do some movements to limber up the different parts of the body; work on my arms and abs. Being a dancer but with plenty of injuries and aches, have had to change my exercise routine to suit my body. It’s not to lose weight but like you said, to get you to have some positive energy to start the day. Always good to start right to finish right 🙂

    Yes, I share this as well in my blog. I try to inspire those who read that it’s not difficult if we don’t set up too much of a high expectation for everything we do. If we are happy doing those things, we had already achieved some form of self-care. It’s about feeling good about the self. I am in my early 60’s and if I can do it, so can anyone who sets the heart and mind to it 🙂
