Saying No to Others and Yes to Yourself

By Donna Stark

Just because the invites are flooding your mailbox, that doesn't mean you need to turn on the gears and attend every event. It's OK to say no and it actually might be better for your overall well-being if you do so. Your mental and emotional health should be as much of a priority as your physical health is, and sometimes that means you may need to set aside some time for yourself. Healthy boundaries are good for everyone, but if you don't know how or where to start, don't worry. Your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic have a few ideas that will get you started on the right path.

Practice Yoga and Meditation

Skip the trips to happy hour with your coworkers and grab a mat for some yoga and meditation instead! Yoga is a great way to improve flexibility and tone your body while meditation has been shown to sharpen concentration, reduce stress and anxiety, and regulate moods.

Organize Your Life

Does the state of your home affect your moods, work, and relationships? If your closets, counters, tables, and floors are hiding under heaps of out-of-place items, it's time to get organized! All that extra clutter sitting around your house can lead to increased levels of stress, erratic mood swings, and poor productivity, so say no to the day of shopping with friends and organize your life.

Expand Your Fitness Routine

Have you been wanting to try a new fitness class at the gym but lacked the motivation to do so? If so, here is your sign to finally join. Whether it's a cycling, Zumba, kickboxing, or aquatics class, you can look forward to all the benefits that come from exercise while still getting a little bit of the social interaction you love too! And, it's so much better for your body than sitting around yet another backyard barbecue.

Travel Alone

Sure, you declined an invitation, but that doesn't mean you need to stay locked up in your home. Take a cue from all the travel bloggers you follow and pick a destination to travel to. You don't even have to go far. As long as you take a break, show yourself some love, and create some wonderful memories, you will be doing yourself a huge favor!

Saying No to Others and Yes to Yourself

Don't get so caught up in treating others well that you forget about yourself. Make it a point to put yourself high on the priority list and do something that you either want or need to do. It's time and you deserve it!
