Love Yourself: Self Care Tips to Enhance Your Life
With such busy schedules and the daily hustle and bustle of life, sometimes there’s only a SMALL amount of time left for ourselves. Below are a few tips to enhance your lifestyle mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Mentally: Make to-do lists with deadlines. We can always say what we are “going to do,” but if you put a deadline on a task, it will force you to get it done. This can take away some of the mental anxiety of having too much on your plate.
Physically: Create a little workout space at home for those ‘just in case I can’t make it to the gym’ days. Let’s face it, sometimes we don’t have the energy (or time) to get to the gym. Purchase yourself some free weights and a jump rope and keep it in a visible space. Make it a point to do a few exercises in the AM or PM for consistency.
Emotionally: At least a few times a week, disconnect from the outside world. Whether that means logging off your social media or turning off the TV, find some time to yourself. Use this time to read meditations, motivational quotes, a spiritual novel, etc. Disconnect from the world and connect to a higher power to get in touch with your thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
Remember, YOU have to be well mentally, physically, and emotionally FIRST before you can be there for anyone else. Take time today to give yourself a little love by implementing some of these self care tips into your life.
