Self-Care Awakening

As spring approaches, it’s time to reflect on how you are doing. Often, winter is one of the toughest times of the year for people. Between the weather, short days, holidays, social isolation, lack of exercise, large quantities of food, and the onset of seasonal affect disorder (SAD), it can be difficult to feel upbeat.

 

Fortunately, spring has finally sprung, and the self-care awakening is here. The end of winter is the perfect time to emerge from wherever you’re at and see how you can better care for yourself. In this blog, we’ll walk you through top self-care tips for women that will help refresh and rejuvenate you.

 

1. Open the windows

 

Think this is a strange tip? Try it! Multiple health experts have stated that you should open your windows for at least 15 minutes a day so you can circulate fresh air. The EPA estimates that Americans spend 90 percent of their time inside. You want to make sure whatever air you’re breathing is fresh and free of pollutants. You’ll also find that this naturally lifts your mood and productivity.  

 

2. Do morning yoga

 

Yoga is the perfect way for women to wake up and center themselves before starting their day. It’s beginner-friendly with no experience needed, and you can find hundreds of short, free yoga sessions on YouTube to get you started. Check out Yoga With Adriene.

 

3. Wake up a little earlier

 

Sleep is one of the most important elements of self-care, so you don’t want to make more time in your day by cutting out sleep. However, you can prioritize self-care by getting on a better sleep schedule. Go to bed on-time (set an alarm in your phone to remind you) and then wake up a little earlier. You have more time to do yoga, drink water, eat a healthy breakfast, take care of your skin, etc. And guess what? Because of that, you’ll ultimately feel more productive too.

 

4. Explore somewhere new

 

Spring is the ideal time to get out and about to try something new. If you live in a place impacted by cold or snowy weather, chances are it’s been a few months since you’ve been exploring. You may have forgotten how great it feels to be out in the fresh air on a new hiking trail, in the park, at a coffee shop, you name it! The experience of getting out and doing something new is enough to boost your morale.
