Too busy and frazzled to be excited for spring or summer? Are you juggling kids, career, errands and everything else that makes your calendar look like an endless list of to-do’s? Most moms can relate right? That’s why it’s important to pamper your inner goddess (remember her?!) on a daily basis, otherwise, you run the risk of feeling depleted and stressed! It’s difficult to schedule ‘me-time’ when so much of our lives revolve around the well-being of others. But did you know that making self-care a daily habit not only alleviates stress, but it also contributes to longevity? We all know that excise, a healthy diet and plenty of sleep are the building blocks of wellness, but there are other little things you can do every day to pamper yourself. Think of it as fuel for your inner goddess! Here are some easy tips and tricks for integrating wellness into your daily schedule:
- Be Grateful~ Studies have shown that people that show gratitude are least likely to experience depression and have an easier time managing the ups and downs of life. Take a minute every day to focus on the positive and give thanks!
- Take a Walk~ Not only is it good for you physically, walking can also elevate your mood and get you back to center fast! Even a stroll for 15 minutes a day can do wonders.
