Welcome to March Madness! Self-Care Priorities AGAIN and AGAIN!
Self-care is an important aspect of your new NOW that cannot be neglected in the hustle and bustle of everyday routines. Taking care of yourself doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming. Incorporating a few basic self-care activities into your daily routine can improve your overall Physical Plane well-being and that sustains your Mental Plane mind to focus on feeling happier and healthier.
Here are 5 self-care reminders that you must have in your daily routine to prioritize your new NOW:
Meditation has been around for centuries, but in recent years, it has gained popularity in the western world due to its numerous benefits. Meditation helps to calm the mind, release negative thoughts, and focus on the present moment’s priorities of sustaining your new NOW.
Adding just 10 minutes of meditation to your daily routine can make a huge difference in your overall mindset. You’ll feel more energized, sleep better, and experience a sense of calm throughout the day. If you’re still not into meditation, there are plenty of guided meditation videos available on sites like YouTube, or you can download free meditation apps on your smartphone. Just start and practice.
Take a walk
Walking is a great way to get some exercise and clear your mind. Whether it’s a brisk walk around the block or a leisurely stroll through a park, taking a walk can help to boost your mood and reduce stress levels.
Make it a daily habit to take a walk, even if it’s just for 15 minutes. You’ll feel more refreshed, be reminded of being in your perfect NOW, and it will ready you to tackle the rest of your day.
Gratitude is a powerful tool that can help to shift your focus from negative thoughts to positive ones. Taking a few minutes each day to write down things that you’re grateful for can help to improve your overall outlook on life.
Try starting your day by writing down three things that you’re grateful for in your morning routine. This can be anything from a good night’s sleep to a kind gesture from a friend. By focusing on the good things in your life, you’ll start to notice more positivity and abundance.
Indulge in a hobby or two
Engaging in a hobby that you enjoy can be a great way to relax and recharge. Whether it’s reading a book, knitting, playing an instrument, or painting, taking time to indulge in a hobby can help to reduce stress levels and improve your mood.
Schedule some time each day to engage in a hobby that you enjoy. Even just 15 minutes can make a big difference in your overall well-being.
Get enough sleep
Getting enough sleep is crucial for overall health and well-being. Lack of sleep can lead to increased stress levels, decreased productivity, and a weakened immune system.
Make it a priority to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night. Create a calming bedtime routine, such as taking a warm bath, reading a book, and/or writing in your journal to help you relax and prepare for a restful night’s sleep.
Incorporating these self-care activities into your daily routine can help you to prioritize your Physical and Mental Plane health. Remember, taking care of yourself is not selfish, it’s necessary for living a fulfilling life.
