We, as women, have a lot on our plates. Between our busy work lives, our busy home lives and endless responsibilities, it can be difficult to put ourselves first. But the truth is, the best way to show up as your best self in every area of your life is to prioritize self care. By taking time to recharge your batteries and take care of yourself, you can better take care of those around you. So in honor of National Self Care Month, we’re sharing five easy ways to take your self care routine to the next level.
Develop (and stick to) a morning routine.
No doubt you’ve heard this advice before: you need a consistent morning routine. Your morning routine sets the tone for your day and allows you to control your schedule, rather than letting your schedule control you. So start your day with something you love -- whether that’s drinking a matcha latte, doing your skincare routine, writing in your journal, squeezing in a morning meditation or all of the above! Setting aside just a few minutes for yourself each morning, without the stress of work emails, social media or your busy schedule, can do wonders for your mental wellbeing.
Be mindful of what you eat.
“Mindful eating” can mean different things to different people. For some, it means eating whole, nutritious foods that give you healthy fuel. For others, it means giving yourself a break and eating that piece of chocolate you’ve been eyeing all day. It’s important to remember that food is a big part of your self care routine. So whatever “mindful eating” means to you, listen to your body and do what feels right for you.
Find ways to treat yourself at home.
You don’t need to book a full spa day to indulge in self care. All you need to do is find ways to treat yourself at home. Light your favorite candle while you put on a soothing face mask. Indulge in your favorite dessert after a busy day with the kids. Set aside 30 minutes to take a warm bath (and drop in a Thryv Organics CBD bath bomb for an ultra relaxing experience). Do whatever you need to do to feel relaxed, recharged and ready to take on the world.
Get your body moving every day.
We get it: life can be pretty hectic. When you’re busy caring for your loved ones, working hard at your job, maintaining your social life and dealing with the weight of other responsibilities, the last thing on your mind is exercise. But moving your body every day can have amazing benefits for your mental & physical health. Research shows that physical activity can boost your self esteem, mood, sleep quality and energy -- and you don’t even have to lift weights everyday or run 5 miles to experience those benefits. So whether you do a quick yoga session each morning or simply walk your dog around the neighborhood, make a conscious effort to take a break each day and get your body moving.
