Think self-care is only something people dream about? Think again.
Our in-home care providers at Qualicare Tri-Cities want to give you some tips on how you can add self-care into your daily routine. Read on as we take a look:
Meditate First Thing In the Morning
Or at least some time during the day. Meditation alone can do a number of wonders for your health, including reducing:
- Blood pressure
- Symptoms of IBS
Therefore, after drinking a glass of water in the morning to wake up your system, take 10 to 15 minutes to have a quiet meditation to start your day off on the right foot, as well as clear and center your mind.
Get Rid of Negativity
We all have those moments where negative thoughts take over our mind and our quality of life. When this happens, the best thing you can do is to let it go. Lay it out on the table...or should we say paper?
By writing down the negativity that is happening in your life at the current moment, you are acknowledging it, accepting it and moving on from it in order to make room for more positivity in your life.
Stop and Smell the Roses
Now, if you want to stop and literally smell roses, go for it! But really what we are wanting you to do is just stop for a moment and pay attention to what is happening in your life right now.
By paying attention to what you see, feel and hear, you are grounding yourself and bringing more mindfulness into your day.
Take Time to Volunteer
Whether it's volunteering at your child's school or spending time at a local shelter, by giving of your time, you are doing just as much for your own well-being as you are for the people you are serving through volunteering.
By even just giving an hour of your time once a week or a few times a month, you are able to boost your own morale and self-esteem, which can help you to lead a more positive life.
