How to Take Better Care of Yourself This New Year
A new year means a new start for a lot of people, and we’re making 2020 all about self-care. Check out our tips on ways that you can take better care of yourself!
Get Your Body Moving
It’s not a secret that exercise is one of the best ways we can take care of ourselves, both physically and mentally. It’s been proven that consistent daily exercise can alleviate feelings of stress or anxiety. But going to the gym every day can be daunting or downright inaccessible. Walking, yoga, swimming—it doesn’t matter. Just getting your body moving is what’s key.
Make Sleep a Priority
Getting enough sleep every night is an important part of any self-care routine. Sleep has a huge effect on how you feel both physically and emotionally each day. However, there are a lot of things that can prevent us from getting enough sleep, like stress. Establishing a nighttime routine can really help calm your mind right before you go to bed.
Learn to Say No to Others
How to say no is a lesson we all have to learn at some point in our lives. It’s easy to feel obligated to say yes whenever someone asks us to do something. But if you’re already feeling burnt out, expending more time or energy is the last thing that can help. It may take some practice but learning to say no is one of the best things you can to take better care of yourself.
Take Care of Your Vagina
Your vagina is probably one of the last things you think of in terms of improving your body’s health, but it can be vital. Disposable pads and tampons contain numerous harmful chemicals and other toxins that can negatively impact your body’s natural mechanics. Switching to reusable cloth period pads can be a great way to take better care of yourself this year.
Cook At Home
With so much fast food readily available It’s really easy to constantly be eating out, especially when our lives get busy. Not only can it be healthier for you, but it’s a great way to disconnect from the world and spend some quality time with yourself. The best part is that there is no limit to how creative you can get in the kitchen to feed your body the nutrients that it needs.
