Take Care of Yourself with Self-Care

Take Care of Yourself with Self-Care
Your wellness is a priority.

Self-care should not make you feel selfish. It’s actually a way to maintain your health. We all need to take care of our bodies and minds in order to maintain optimal well-being. However, each person’s approach to self-care is unique to them.

There are some things that are universally important for keeping us well, such as eating a well-balanced diet. Other things are specific to the individual and deliver different benefits based on lifestyle. For example, some people require less sleep, while others require more.

Here is a list of some self-care ideas to use today:

• Eat a healthy diet.

• Get the sleep your body requires.

• Exercise or engage in some form of physical activity (a daily walk, pulling weeds in the garden or high-intensity interval training).

• Visit the doctor annually.

• Avoid excessive use of tech devices.

• Give yourself a pedicure or a manicure.

• Take a leisurely walk without a goal.

• Take a nap.

• Order in dinner.

• Go to the library or bookstore. Sit in a comfy chair and read.

• Watch funny YouTube videos.

• Sit in the grass and watch the clouds float by.

• Look at the stars.

• Try a new hobby.

• Do yoga.

• Sing at the top of your lungs.

• Go for a drive — no destination required.

• Have a 20-minute stretching session.

We would love to hear what self-care routines work best for you. Remember — wellness is a priority to living your best life.
