Best ideas for self-care and optimal health.

How often do you feel tired? Stressed? Low energy or uninspired? While there are many lifestyle and mindset factors that play into each of these feelings or experiences, there is often one key thing missing from the equation: self-care .

What is self-care and why do we need it?

Self-care is any activity that contributes to your overall physical and mental health by offering relaxation, detoxification, inspiration, or a greater connection with you and your loved ones.

Practicing regular self-care activities is very important to maintain your overall physical and mental well-being.Although you don't always have a conscious intention to "take care of yourself," making time for activities you enjoy helps create a fulfilling life in which you can better cope with any stress, stress, or sadness that may arise.

How much personal care do we need?

Certain times in your life may require more emphasis on self-care to keep you in balance, but in general we recommend aiming for at least 15 minutes of intentional self-care activities each day.

That could be 15 minutes of yoga before work, an episode or two of your favorite late-night TV show (hey, we're not totally against TV! 😉), or a special late-night beauty routine before going to bed.

Don't feel like there are specific things you need to do to relax or rejuvenate; It can totally vary by person, and self-care is only effective if it's something you personally enjoy and find self-care every day.

Don't feel like there are specific things you need to do to relax and rejuvenate yourself; it can vary totally from person to person, and self-care is only effective if it is something you personally enjoy and find fulfilling . So if you don't like yoga or find it relaxing to sit and meditate, no problem! Maybe going for a run or taking a boxing class is more your style.

See the list below for ideas that might work for you. This list is not exhaustive, so go ahead and incorporate other self-care activities if you prefer!

The time you like to waste is not wasted time.
