Quick Self-Care Activities
For the busy individual, here are some tips to incorporate healthy habits. All you need is 20 minutes or less.
Go for a walk
Daily movement is the unsung hero of having a clear mind. Taking a short walk at some point in your day is guaranteed to give your head a reset, get your blood flowing, and generally just makes you feel better.
Take deep breaths
Feeling overwhelmed? By taking a few deep breaths and really focusing on your breathing does wonders for your blood pressure, mental state and anxiety levels. Even if it just for a few seconds, breathing in and out slowly will center you for stressors that come your way.
Get some sun
Cooped up in the office all day? Always try to get at least 10 minutes of sunshine everyday. Either step outside for a few minutes for a dose of Vitamin D, or simply open your blinds and take a peek outside. Any amount of sunlight will boost your serotonin and energy levels.
