Self Care Is Necessary! Some Tips From The Experts!
SELF-CARE IDEAS THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOR THE BETTER:
(Because self-care is not selfish. When you put your best foot forward, everybody wins…)
1 End your shower with an invigorating blast: Switch to cold water for 30 seconds. You’ll get a big burst of energy as your body kicks your circulation into gear. It also helps to release endorphins.
2 Tea up: Adding a cup of tea to your morning routine is good for you. Drinking green tea regularly may lower your bad cholesterol levels. And people with a habit of drinking black tea have a lower risk of developing heart disease.
3 Clear clutter: Devote 20 minutes to tidying a messy area, and you’ll feel better. Studies have linked cluttered environments with stress and lower self-control (say, around food), which can put a damper on your physical health.
4 Take a lunchtime stroll: A 15-minute midday walk boosts energy throughout the workday. It’s also good for the brain.
5 Give your eyes a break: So much of our days are spent in front of screens; prevent dry eyes, headaches, and blurred vision by following the rule of 20: Every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break to look at something 20 feet away.
6 Breathe like a yogi: Studies say that 20 minutes of yoga breathing can lift your mood and even improve your memory.
7 Donate your time: Volunteering gives people purpose, which raises self-esteem and lowers loneliness. (It helps others, too…which is a good thing!)
8 Plant something: A study found that adults who garden are happier, healthier, and more likely to eat vegetables. Create a “Yay!” list: Every night, write down anything that made you say “Yay!” during the day. Think finding hidden money in your pocket, a surprise call from a friend, sunny skies…these help you recognize things going right in your life instead of focusing on the negative.
