Meditation There are many different types of meditation techniques. The most common method is known as mindfulness meditation, which involves paying attention to your breathing and your body. Many people find it helpful for reducing stress levels and feeling more relaxed. This can also help you focus on things that are happening in the present instead of worrying about the past or future. You may have heard that meditation can help you sleep better at night, but there's actually more to its benefits than just that! It can also reduce the symptoms of anxiety and depression, making it one of the best self-care practices out there! Exercise Exercise is a great way to relieve stress. It also helps you sleep better, which can make it easier for you to deal with your stress in the first place. Exercise can be social (join a gym or meet-up group) or solo (go for a run). If exercising outside appeals to you, why not change things up by going somewhere new? You never know what kind of beautiful scenery or wildlife you might find along the way! Myofascial Release If you're looking for a self-care method that goes beyond the basics and can really help with muscle tension, myofascial release is a great option. The best part? It's easy to do at home! You can either do this technique yourself or with the help of a massage therapist. If you choose to do it on your own, I recommend starting with an inexpensive foam roller (about $10-$15), tennis ball ($5-$10), or lacrosse ball ($4). After some time spent rolling around on one of these tools, you should feel much more relaxed and limber afterward. Be aware that this method may be painful—but it's worth it! Get outside Get outside. Be sure to get at least 30 minutes of direct sunlight each day. You can also take vitamin D supplements if you aren't getting enough sun. Take a break This is probably the most important one because it's so easy to fall into the trap of treating self-care as a luxury. You deserve it though! Taking breaks can mean the difference between being able to accomplish your goals and having them fall by the wayside. Here are some examples: Take a break from your phone. Put it away for at least an hour each day, preferably when you're with other people (or better yet, engage in conversation!). If you're at work, use that time for something else—like reading or writing emails, answering messages on Slack or IRC chat rooms if that's what works best, or doing some task management (like making lists). We live in an era where we can't escape connectivity even when we want to; but taking regular digital detoxes will help you stay sane while still keeping up with things like social media feeds or email inboxes.* Take a break from your computer.* Take a break from social media.* Eat healthy and satisfying meals Set aside time to cook your own meals. While this may seem like a daunting task, it can be easier than you think! If you don't have much time in the morning, try prepping ingredients for your lunch and dinner in advance so that all you need to do is throw them together. Get creative with your recipes—and make sure they're healthy! The internet is overflowing with recipe ideas that are both delicious and nutritious. If you're looking for inspiration, check out Pinterest or Food52. Or, if cooking isn't your thing at all (hey there!), there are plenty of meal delivery services available where chefs prepare healthy meals right at home for as little as $10 per serving—and deliver them right to your door so that all you have to do is heat them up when hunger strikes again later on down the road! Just remember: variety is key! It's important not only because it keeps things interesting and prevents boredom from setting in but also because different foods provide different nutrients which means meeting individual needs such as sufficient vitamins & minerals found only in certain foods like fruits/vegetables will become more difficult without being able to rotate between different types regularly enough." Socialize with friends and family, even if it is only virtually It's important to spend time with friends and family, but if you don't have the opportunity to see your loved ones face-to-face, social media can be a great way to connect. While it has its limitations, it's still possible to have meaningful conversations and feel connected with people who are far away. If you're interested in learning about different cultures or languages, social media can help facilitate that connection as well. You might even find yourself making new friends from around the world! If there is someone whose work or opinions resonate with yours, connecting over social media is another easy way for two people who may never meet each other in person but share common interests and values can come together. Get a full night of sleep Sleep is an important part of self-care. You need it to feel rested and alert, and to be able to work at your best. The National Sleep Foundation recommends that adults get between seven and nine hours of sleep each night, but your personal needs may vary. If you're having trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, try these tips: Limit caffeine intake after 2 pm so that it doesn't affect your ability to sleep later in the afternoon or evening. Avoid alcohol before bedtime because it can disrupt your normal sleep patterns by reducing rapid eye movement (REM) sleep—the stage when dreaming occurs—and increasing deep sleep stages 1 and 2 without increasing REM time. Set aside time for unwinding with a relaxing activity before bedtime; for example, listening to music or reading a book may help calm down enough so that you can fall asleep faster once you go into your bedroom at night. If these strategies don’t help improve your quality of restful slumber, consider seeking advice from a doctor about possible underlying causes for insomnia like depression or anxiety disorders; medications that affect sleep such as those used for allergies; obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which causes loud snoring with pauses in breathing during sleep; restless leg syndrome (RLS), which makes people feel like they want their legs moving even when they aren't exercising them actively enough yet still results in excessive involuntary movements such as kicking motions; narcolepsy type 1 & 2 genetic mutations causing cataplexy episodes during waking hours due to lack REM stage 4 deep slow-wave stages 3B4 sodium channels 5HTT A allele carriers immune system problems such as Hashimoto Graves Thyroiditis primary adrenal insufficiency (Addison's Disease); Self-care can be anything that distracts you from stress. Find an activity that works for you and take time to give yourself some self-love. Self-care is important. It can be anything that distracts you from stress, so find an activity that works for you and take time to give yourself some self-love. For example, I like to do yoga in the morning before work, but only if I've had enough sleep and have eaten breakfast. Otherwise, it can be hard for me to focus on my breathing when I'm feeling hungry or exhausted. If I get stressed out at work or home and don't feel like doing anything, sometimes I'll go for a walk around my neighborhood; sometimes that makes me feel better as opposed to sitting down and trying not to think about whatever is stressing me out (which never works). Other times when I'm really stressed out or sad about something specific happening in my life right now—like someone being mean at work—I'll spend some time writing in my journal instead of doing anything else because I find it easier than talking through how those feelings make me feel with someone else face-to-face since they're still fresh in my mind at that moment anyway."
