40 Self-care strategies

We all get preoccupied with our personal, social and professional life sometimes. In doing so, we often forget that self-care is quite important. After all, ‘mens sana in corpore sano’ or ‘a healthy mind in a healthy body’ is one of the biggest and best gifts you can give yourself. For those less fortunate in the health department – including yours truly – you can adopt a few easy steps to make yourself feel better physically, mentally and emotionally.

You can only move forward in life when you take ownership of everything in it, my mantra is ‘Life is 10% of what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

With that in mind, so, practising below hints makes them a lot more easy to follow.

Morning

  • Wake up early. Carpe diem! You get a lot more done when you wake up early and seize the day.
  • Start your day with five minutes of breathing in deeply through your nose, holding your breath and then breathing out through your mouth. Put your hand on your belly, and feel it rising and falling noticeably while breathing. You can easily do this lying down or sit in a chair.
  • Add a good cleansing ritual by drinking a glass of warm water and lemon before having breakfast.
  • Continue drinking fluids every day, especially when you take a lot of medication.
  • Take as much time for breakfast, lunch and dinner as you need, and let the food settle in your stomach before sitting or lying down again to avoid indigestion.
  • Don’t forget to get the necessary rays of direct sunshine to get some vitamin D. Cloudy days limit your intake and sitting behind glass doesn’t produce vitamin D, so you need to go outside and find some sunshine.
  • Prioritise your daily or weekly tasks to get as much enjoyment and time out of it as possible.

What’s your view on this? Answer below! Continue reading

Healthy eating

Eating a balanced diet can be a tricky thing sometimes, especially when temptation is everywhere. I often tell myself, ‘Ah but I’m already doing so much for my health by using my own ‘everything-in-moderation’ diet. Since I don’t consume alcohol or other legal and illegal highs, I something think I am allowed at least a tiny dessert… as long as it’s not ice cream.

So yes…

Busted!

Time so to check out the image below and learn what healthy eating should be like. Continue reading
