Make your health a priority

You may have stress coming from multiple directions such as work, school, family, kids, neighbors, or others. However, it’s important to establish your health as a top consideration. Find a balance between taking care of others and taking care of yourself.

Understand the fundamentals of self-care

Self-care is a conscious effort to put yourself first. It requires you to take time for activities that nourish and sustain your body, mind, and spirit. When you make it a priority to take care of yourself, you build a lifestyle that focuses on healthy choices. Build self-care into your daily habits, such as eating a healthy breakfast and exercising.

Start with one healthy habit a day

If self-care isn’t a normal part of your life, it may be difficult to get used to it. However, you can start with one small habit and you’ll see positive changes. By implementing one healthy habit each week, you’ll begin your journey of taking better care of yourself.

Find your own path

It’s easy to get caught up in the self-care practices that others use. However, it’s more effective to find your own path to wellness. What works wonders for one person can be a complete waste or even annoying to another. If something someone else does appeals to you, feel free to try it, but don’t get caught up in what others do or what you “should” do.

Continue growing

It’s not enough to add one self-care habit and move on. Stress will continue to be a factor as long as you’re on this planet. It’s important to discover new self-care habits to alleviate your stress. Be willing to add new habits or replace old ones that aren’t working anymore.
