Make A Self-Care Plan
January 10, 2022
It is more important than ever to remember to make space for self care. Engaging in self care can be challenging, so we’ve collected some expert suggestions to make it easier…
We all know it’s possible to get too little sleep, but it’s also possible to get too much! Resist the urge to sleep in or stay up too late. A regular sleep schedule will help you feel grounded, and protect your physical and emotional health.
Move Your Body
Movement is crucial to better physical and emotional health If possible, find a safe space like a quiet park or your neighborhood street to take a walk. The exercise will help you reduce stress and fatigue, and improves overall mood.
While a little indulging never hurt, now is the time to practice healthy eating habits. Self care foods can include green vegetables, nuts and lean protein. Choosing snacks like fruit, veggies and baked crackers helps you manage your hunger and keep your energy up throughout the day. Don’t forget to drink water!

Remember all of those projects that you planned to tackle when you had time? Now’s the time! It’s easy to get overwhelmed with organization. Small steps, like decluttering that junk drawer or a closet, can be an act of self care. You can also take this time to declutter your schedule. Set up a calendar or planner with your typical weekly schedule. Does it feel overwhelming? Look for places where you can say no, and free up time for what matters most to you.
