Self Care Ideas That You Need To Do!

It’s always so hard to take time for YOURSELF. Work, school, kids, spouses… it is what makes us who we are! Self-care is not selfish. When you put your best foot forward, everybody wins!  Here are some really great ways to treat YOURSELF!

☞ End your shower with an invigorating blast:  Switch to cold water for 30 seconds. You’ll get a big burst of energy as your body kicks your circulation into gear. It also helps to release endorphins.
☞ Tea up:  Adding a cup of tea to your morning routine is good for you. Drinking green tea regularly may lower your bad cholesterol levels. And people with a habit of drinking black tea have a lower risk of developing heart disease.
☞ Clear clutter:  Devote 20 minutes to tidying a messy area, and you’ll feel better. Studies have linked cluttered environments with stress and lower self-control (say, around food), which can put a damper on your physical health.
☞ Take a lunchtime stroll:  A 15-minute midday walk boosts energy throughout the workday. It’s also good for the brain. Take your smart phone with you and listen to Magic 949!!
☞ Give your eyes a break:  So much of our days are spent in front of screens; prevent dry eyes, headaches, and blurred vision by following the rule of 20: Every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break to look at something 20 feet away.
☞ Breathe like a yogi:  Studies say that 20 minutes of yoga breathing can lift your mood and even improve your memory.
☞ Donate your time:  Volunteering gives people purpose, which raises self-esteem and lowers loneliness. (It helps others, too…which is a good thing!)
☞ Plant something:  A study found that adults who garden are happier, healthier, and more likely to eat vegetables.
☞ Create a “Yay!” list:  Every night, write down anything that made you say “Yay!” during the day. Think finding hidden money in your pocket, a surprise call from a friend, sunny skies…these help you recognize things going right in your life instead of focusing on the negative.
