The New Year is upon us and with that comes the time to put ourselves first. In this blog post, we’re going to share some self-care tips that will help you start 2024 on the right foot.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Feed: Choose fresh, healthy foods that provide you with vitamins and minerals to keep you fueled.
- Move: Find activities you enjoy, whether it’s dancing, biking, swimming, or simply taking a walk in nature. But make sure you are wearing the proper workout clothing and shoes, including products that help support your feet, especially if you have special needs such as insoles for plantar fasciitis. Regular movement is essential for both physical and mental health but you want to be sure you don’t make things worse.
- Rest: Try to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night. Develop a bedtime routine to wind down before sleep.
- Gratitude: Start each day by writing down three things you’re grateful for.
- Meditate: Take some time to meditate to help relieve stress and create focus.
- Journaling: Write down everything you are feeling to help you identify areas you need to work on.
- Boundaries: Set healthy boundaries and learn to say no. It’s okay to put yourself and your needs first.
- Time: Make sure you are spending time with people who value it.
- Hobbies: Make sure you have extracurricular activities that make you happy. Even better, find friends and family to do them with you.
- Professional help: If you’re struggling mentally, reach out and get help. There is no shame in asking, we all need help sometimes.
Self-Care isn’t something you can learn in a book, it is as individual as you are. Figure out what works for you.
