3 Ways to Care for Yourself Every Day

By Genevieve Cunningham

Good health is all about decisions. We have to make good decisions over and over again. And if we want to break it down even more, we need to make good decisions every day. But what does that look like? And what kind of decisions matter most? If you're trying to improve your health and wellness, a great place to begin is with your self-care. To take care of your own health and well-being on a daily basis, take a look at these tiny ways to care for yourself every single day.

With a Morning Routine

Morning routines can make or break the rest of your day. If you actually give yourself some time in the mornings, you can really start your day off in a calm, peaceful way. Wake up before everyone else and drink your coffee in peace. Read your paper -- or today's equivalent: the phone! -- without interruption. This is a great way to show yourself a little love first thing and start your day with a self-care mindset.

With One Quiet Moment

You deserve a moment to yourself at some point during your day. It's going to feel like there's no time. It's going to feel like you have a million other things to do and that everyone else needs your attention. But be selfish for five minutes. Step outside of the office or your house all alone. Breathe fresh air and allow the stress to melt. This is a nice and easy way to regroup and remind yourself that your own needs are important too.

With a Workout

Exercise is key to a healthy life. Make sure that you're making enough time for exercise. It doesn't matter if you go to a class, go for a run, pop in an at-home DVD, or just walk at the park. Just make sure that you're allowing yourself to get a little movement every day. And if you can't spare any extra time alone, take your family with you! You'll be getting the workout that you need and teaching your loved ones healthy habits all at the same time.

It's really important to care for yourself. You have to put yourself first sometimes because no one else is going to do it for you. Use these tiny little tips to get yourself moving in the right direction, and enjoy the better health and boost in mental wellness that comes with it.
