5 Simple Self-Care Practices You Can Start Today


With the fast-paced lifestyle that many people live, it's easy to feel worn down and fatigued. It's even easier to feel stressed out by work, family, and personal obligations. Self-care is not just a one-size-fits-all activity; everyone needs a little something different in their life to give them relief from their day-to-day activities. That doesn't mean it has to be time consuming, and with practice it will become second nature.

Breathe

Take time out of your day to focus on your breath.  This will bring you into the present moment and stay calm in the face of a hectic day.  Just take three deep breathes into your heart space.  Breathing in life force to your heart, your belly and throughout your body.  Breathe out all that no longer serves you for your highest good.

Spend Time In Nature

Spending time in nature is not just relaxing, it also has health benefits. Some studies have shown it can reduce depression and anxiety, improve your mood, help with sleep, and even boost cognitive function.  Just taking the time to go on a walk outside can do wonders for your mental health. Even if it’s just taking ten minutes to sit in the garden with a cup of tea.   

Say No

One of the most important things we can do as humans is to say no. We all have a limited amount of time, energy, and space in our lives. By saying no now, we open up more space for yes later. Setting boundaries for your work and personal life is one of the most important keys to achieving better health and higher productivity.  Be willing to say no if it doesn’t align with you.

Set Positive Intentions

Setting positive intention is known to be one of the most helpful practices, as it gives you the ability to recognize your strengths and focus on your goals.  By creating positive statements and affirmations, you are essentially creating a practice in cultivating change. It starts with the small but powerful decision to love and accept unconditionally, putting your energy into something you truly want.

Burn Incense

Incense is the perfect tool to use for self-care to help you relax or just to keep your mind light and peaceful throughout the day!  By burning incense with intention, you are changing the energy vibration to invoke positive vibes.  Use incense to purify your space, bring a sense of calm and clear your mind.  The aroma from incense can help you feel more relaxed, which can reduce stress and anxiety. The best part about incense is that it's something that anyone can use.
