What are the self-care tips for better health?


1.Drink a glass of water first thing in the morning - it's best to start your day by hydrating with a full glass of water. Hydrating first thing in the morning aids digestion, improves skin health and increases energy.

2. Eat real food - Aim to eat real food that's made from whole food ingredients in your kitchen pantry, or that your grandma might recognize. (Yes, it regulates most packaged foods, sorry!) That's a little different than suggesting that you only eat "health foods" (many of which are rapidly processed!). "Real food" includes unprocessed foods such as an apple, a cucumber, soybeans or a steak, as well as foods loosely processed from one (or a few) real food ingredients such as butter, olive oil, yogurt, tofu, etc. substances are included. Word, aim for foods that can be properly made in your own kitchen and avoid foods that can only be made in a lab.

3. Develop positive thinking -"The only difference between a good day and a bad day is your attitude." It's true – mindset is everything! Cultivate a positive mindset by recognizing negative thought patterns and countering them with positive thoughts or affirmations. Here are more mindfulness resources for positive thinking.

4. Get enough sleep - Most adults need 7-9 hours of sleep each night. But apart from quantity, quality of sleep also matters! Follow our tips for getting good sleep—keeping your bedroom cool at night, avoiding blue light after dark, and more.

5. Try to exercise daily - or even get out and walk for half an hour a few times a week. You don't have to go to the gym: if you can, get some sun, take a walk or do whatever you can to get your bloods flowing.

6. Emotional self-care - enhancing emotional literacy, navigating emotions, increasing empathy and managing stress effectively. Some examples of emotional self-care: saying no, making time for reflecting on feelings, practicing self-compassion and being aware of your emotional boundaries

7. Psychological self-care - learning new things, practicing mindfulness and creativity. Some examples of psychological self-care are practicing mindfulness, reading a book and learning a new skills

8. Social self-care - having a supportive group and network of relationships around you that you can trust and turn to. Some examples of social self-care are honoring your commitments to other people, asking for help when you need it, meeting new people and spending time with family and friends

9. Professional self-care - sharing your strengths and gifts, having clear professional boundaries and living your purpose. Some examples of professional self-care are eating a nourishing lunch each day at work, negotiating your needs, having clear professional boundaries and attending professional developing opportunities

10. Financial self-care - being responsible with your finances and having a conscious relationship with money.
