There's been a lot of talk about self-care in the last year, and rightfully so! Throughout the Pandemic and lockdowns, it became essential to prioritize our mental and emotional well-being!
The thing is, self-care is so much more than treating yourself, online shopping, or taking bubble baths and lighting candles. Instead of being a one-time indulgence, self-care should be an integral part of your everyday routine.
It's all about doing the things that bring you joy, reconnect you as a person, and ultimately empower you to feel your best. We need to continue to make self-care a priority and focus on maintaining our physical, emotional, and mental well-being for ourselves and our families.
Here are three essential self-care practices you can implement today…
1. Spend some time outside
Sitting outside has been shown to lower blood pressure, heart rate, and levels of the stress hormone cortisol! Taking time out for yourself to soak up some Vitamin D or spend time in and around nature is hugely beneficial to your overall well-being! Your body and mind will thank you for it later.
