Self-care is a responsibility toward oneself, but most people ignore it because they prioritize other things.
However, overlooking your health can deprive you of a quality life. It can affect your personal relationships, productivity at work, and overall success.
Surprisingly, self-care is the simplest thing to do as a little takes you a long way.
Best of all, you need not spend a fortune or loads of time looking after yourself. And I’m here to help share some simple and inexpensive self care practices to help you live healthier and happier.
As you might know, I am a bestselling wellness author.
I wrote a bestselling relaxation book called Instant Calm. Plus I founded a nutritionist recommended online program called The Stop Emotional Eating Course.
I love sharing insights and techniques to help people to enjoy a healthier mind and body.
And so I put together this quick guide with easy self-care practices to live your best life.
Eating a balanced diet and sticking with the mealtimes are the basics of a healthy diet. But you must think beyond these basics and strengthen your gut health to achieve physical and mental well-being. A balance of good and bad bacteria in your gut does more than optimizing your digestion. It affects your mood, complexion, and lifespan. Start loading up on prebiotics and probiotics to heal and strengthen your gut sooner than later.
A sedentary lifestyle reduces your lifespan and increases health risks, but you probably find ways to avoid exercise. The simplest way to be consistent with your workout schedules is by picking exercises that make you happy. The aim is to burn calories and achieve optimal fitness levels—the exercise you choose hardly matters if it covers these fronts. You can choose swimming, join an aerobics class with your buddies, or dance with your kids. Adherence is the key to self-care.
Stress is perhaps the most daunting challenge to overcome with your self-care initiative. Ditching it for good should be a part of your plan. Meditation and deep breathing are the best ways to purge daily anxiety. A cannabis session takes you the extra mile, but remember to choose and dose wisely. Try a high-quality Delta 9 product for deep relaxation. Edibles like gummies and chocolates are excellent options as they are delicious and discreet. They also provide sustainable effects that last for hours.
Perhaps the simplest way to invest in self-care is by reclaiming your sleep. Losing an hour of sleep does not seem like a big deal, but it can affect your physical and mental health more than you imagine. Commit to getting eight hours of bedtime daily, even if it means saying no to late nights, parties, and long hours at work. Create a clean and consistent sleep-wake schedule and ditch habits that can keep you awake.
Spending more time outdoors is another self-care practice worth embracing. It is a chance to replenish your vitamin D supply from sunshine, recharge your lungs with fresh air, and release your stress. Make it solo practice a couple of times every week, as spending an hour with yourself is therapeutic. On other days, you can play with your kids, walk with your partner, or socialize with people in the park.
Your health is precious, so you should not take it for granted. Embracing these daily self-care practices can take you a step ahead with your well-being without costing anything. Pick them right away to live the best life.
