Achieve Your Wellness Goals With These 8 Self-Care Habits
Wellness has become a generic term, defining everything from health, fitness, beauty, food, relationships, to the soul.It’s a river of information one can drown in or get rejuvenated by. Wellness is the mini steps, you take on a DAILY basis, that gradually transforms you from the inside out, so that suddenly one day you realise, you look and feel like a totally new you, better than ever before!
Here are a few of my favourite self-care habits that will help you achieve your wellness goals:
- Food/Diet: Balance It Out
A smoothie binge is the best binge!
2. Relationships: Show Kindness
Oh, the messy playground of the heart is the toughest plain to navigate.
A few simple tricks I use: step back and breathe! Understand that the most toxic people are the ones who teach you the most. Judge no one. Let go of the small things. Kindness is key!
3. Beauty: Self-Acceptance
The first and foremost beauty trick is self-acceptance! There is nothing more beautiful or more magnetic than a person who radiates a true self-love that says, “I love me exactly as I am!” Imperfections only add depth.
4. Soul: Daily Meditation
You are neither your body, nor your mind….you are your soul. Elevate your energy, elevate your vibe. Daily meditations are a must for this!
5. Fitness: Keep Off The Couch
I go with my moods, but I always move! It doesn’t matter what, or how much. I sweat out; doing the things I love, step by step. Walk, dance, climb, go to the gym, and do yoga— whatever gets me off that couch. I don’t let the fear of perfection keep me frozen.
6. Hobbies: Try Something New
I avoid stagnation. Whether it’s reading a book, chasing a sport, listening to the latest tunes, or travelling to a new destination, I ensure there’s something new EVERY SINGLE DAY. Research proves that this builds new neural connections—the most powerful anti-ageing tool!
7. Time Alone: 20 Minutes Of Peace
Every day, I make it a point to step back from the mayhem and spend some time with my favourite person: ME! I let my thoughts wander, let myself feel what I feel without censure, and think with my heart. Some of my best ideas stem from those 20 minutes of peace.
8. Physical Space: Clear Out Negativity From Your Space
It's a scientific fact that the space around us not only reflect and absorb energy, but also hold on to it! Clearing out negativity from a space — by decluttering and/or burning sage or dhoop — is a must to feel lighter and calmer!
