"Put Yourself First: Why Self-Care Should Be at the Top of Your New Year's Resolutions List"

Updated: Mar 31, 2023

Self-care is the practice of taking care of your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It is an important aspect of overall health and well-being, and it can help you feel more balanced, energized, and focused. Self-care is often overlooked or put on the back burner in the busyness of daily life. The start of a New Year is the perfect time to put self care at the top of your list! If you're feeling overwhelmed, burnt out, or just in need of some TLC, it's time to make self-care a priority. Here are some ways to incorporate self-care into your daily routine:

  1. Set aside time for relaxation: Make time for activities that help you unwind and de-stress, such as reading, listening to music, booking a massage, or taking a bath.

  2. Get enough rest: Make sure you are getting enough sleep each night to help you feel rested and refreshed.

  3. Exercise regularly: Regular physical activity can help reduce stress and improve your overall well-being.

  4. Eat a healthy diet: A healthy diet can help improve your physical and mental health. Focus on incorporating more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains into your meals and limiting processed and sugary foods.

  5. Practice mindfulness: Mindfulness involves paying attention to the present moment and accepting your thoughts and feelings without judgment. It can help reduce stress and improve mental health. You can practice mindfulness through activities such as meditation, yoga or float therapy.

  6. Connect with others: Strong social connections can improve your mental and emotional well-being. Make an effort to spend quality time with friends and family, or consider joining a club or group that shares your interests.

  7. Seek professional help if needed: If you're struggling with mental health issues or other challenges, don't be afraid to seek help from a mental health professional.

Remember, self-care is not selfish – it's necessary for your overall well-being. Taking care of yourself can help you feel more balanced and better equipped to handle the demands of daily life. Making yourself a priority will not only improve your overall physical health, it reminds our subconscious that we are worthy of care and that we are just as valuable as those we love and care for, therefore also helping our mental health improve as well. Make self-care a priority and watch your overall physical and mental health and well-being improve. Happy New Year and here's to a wonderful 2023!
