Life can be busy which can lead to feelings of stress and anxiety. This is especially true for many of us who may not have the time to practice regular self-care. However, self-care is such a critical part of taking care of your health, and just five to ten minutes per day can completely transform your mental health.
Let’s take a look at four daily self-care practice that can help transform your mental health.
4 Daily Self-Care Practices
#1 Wake up 15 Minutes Earlier & Set Your Intentions For the Day: While getting up earlier may not sound like a form of self-care, getting up before the whole house does, and setting your intentions for the day can be a great way to kickstart your day for success. Plus, you can take a few minutes to pencil in some time for self-care each morning as well.
#2 Move Your Body More: We all know just how important exercise is for our overall health, but I think many of us underestimate just how important it is for our mental health. Have you ever worked out and just felt ten times better afterward? Try to find a way to move your body each day, I promise you will never regret a workout!
#3 Daily Random Acts of Kindness: Sometimes doing things for others actually helps us feel better, and it certainly brightens someone else's day. If you feel like you are stuck in a rut, go out of your way to perform some form of kindness, even if it is as simple as holding the door for someone. By doing so, you will be more mindful of how you act around others, and you would be surprised at what this does for your overall mood.
#4 Unwind With A Cup of Herbal Tea: At the end of a long day, there’s really no better way to unwind than with a mug of herbal tea to help calm your mind and body. Try sipping on our Dr. Vim’s Holy Basil Tulsi Tea to help combat stress and reduce feelings of anxiety.
For added health benefits, try incorporating an adaptogenic herb blend like Yinergy or Vigor into your supplement routine. These blends can help combat feelings of anxiety while helping your body deal with stress. Taking adaptogens is a great way to show your body some love, and giving your body a boost so you can function at your best each day.
Self-care is so important, and it’s essential to remember that you can’t pour from an empty cup. Take the time to implement even just five minutes of self-care into your day, it will make a huge difference in how you feel overall.
