Self-care is often associated with expensive spa treatments and massages. While those things are definitely nice, it is important to think of self-care habits that are affordable and sustainable. After all, self-care is supposed to be for everyone, not just for the wealthy.
The best kind of self-care practices are ones that you can incorporate in your routine. The important thing is to find time to do the things that help you become better. Looking for easy and affordable ways to practice self-care? Here are five things you can do every day.
When you have a hundred things on your plate, it’s easy to ignore sleep. When you are often sleep-deprived, it takes a toll on your body. Your health, your mood, and your productivity suffer if you don’t get enough shut-eye. Try to aim for at least 7- 9 hours of sleep every day. Observe your sleeping patterns and figure out how much sleep you need to be productive.
Drinking water is something so simple but it has so many benefits that can contribute to your overall health and wellness. Meeting your daily requirements for water is one of the easiest ways to take care of yourself. Try to drink at least 8 glasses a day, more if you workout or if the weather is hot. You can bring a reusable bottle with you anywhere you go to save money and help save the planet.
It’s easy to make it a habit to eat fast food or whatever is convenient, but if you want to be healthy, you should be more mindful of what you eat. Add more fruits and vegetables to your diet. You don’t have to deprive yourself completely but try to stay away from processed and sugary food as much as you can.
The human body is not made to be sedentary. If you have a desk job that requires you to sit most of the day, then you should try to create a routine that will allow you to move more. If you don’t exercise, then it may seem physically taxing, but once it becomes part of your routine, it will become much easier for you.
Most people think of taking a bath as a simple cleaning ritual but it also provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy quality “me time” while relaxing. You just need to pay more attention to details to elevate your regular bath.
