Self Care isn't Selfish!
Taking care of yourself is pivotal to not only your mental health but your overall health as well. Unfortunately, stress is inevitable, but there are steps you can take to alleviate the symptoms of stress that you may be experiencing.
Stress can affect your body negatively in so many different ways. For example, stress can cause frequent headaches, insomnia, high blood sugar, increased depression, and can even weaken your immune system. Self-care isn't selfish! It’s another way of taking care of your health. You're putting yourself and your wellbeing first!
There are plenty of ways to show yourself the self-care that you deserve. Here are a few ideas to help get you started.
- Soak your feet for 20 minutes. Your feet work hard every day, and they deserve a break too! Soaking your feet is a great way for you to sit down, relax, and focus on relieving the soreness of your tired feet. Soaking your feet for just a few minutes can help with issues like muscle tension, fatigue, corns, and calluses that affect foot health.

- Go outside. Enjoying the beautiful sunshine is a great way to help alleviate some of your stress. Sitting outside, reading a book, or taking a walk are all great ways to help you release any added tension you may be carrying.
- Take a relaxing bath. Dip into a relaxing, hot bath and feel your stress melt away. Soaking in a bath is not only great for de-stressing, but it’s also beneficial for your overall wellness. Soaking in a hot bath can help improve your mood, your heart health, and your brain and nervous system. Grab a glass of wine, add some bubbles, and enjoy a well-deserved bath!
