Self-care can come in a lot of different forms, but we know it isn’t always easy to make time for yourself. To help achieve overall wellness, here are three self-care tips you should consider:

  1. Make time for exercise
    Small acts of daily exercise are one of the best ways to practice self-care and alleviate stress by releasing dopamine for overall wellness and satisfaction. You don’t have to do an extensive workout. Just 20 minutes of daily exercise will do the trick!
  2. Get enough sleep
    A lack of sleep can have many effects such as an increased risk of chronic illnesses, being irritable, and being unable to perform daily tasks. Getting at least seven hours of sleep is critical for any self-care routine.
  3. Try journaling
    Mental health is a huge aspect of self-care, and journaling can be effective for mental health support. Studies show that journaling is also linked to physical health benefits such as low blood pressure. For example, try taking 5 minutes before bed each day to reflect on three things you are grateful for.

It’s important to learn how to incorporate small daily self-care habits into your life to make an impact on your overall wellness.
