When we think of self-care, the first thing that pops into our mind is a spa session or soaking in a bubble bath. Self-care just requires you to pause, think, and grow. Here’s a routine that you can follow as the fall season approaches.
Drink Some Water First Thing In The Morning
We often wake up slightly dehydrated after a night's sleep. Hydration is essential for maintaining optimal brain activity so start your day with a glass full of water.
Drinking water as soon as you wake up rehydrates the body instantly, which is crucial for daily productivity.
Although this practice should be carried throughout the day, beginning your day with a glass of water is a step in the right direction.
Being immersed in the digital world has become a vital part of everyday life—to the extent that an average adult spends about 11 hours a day interacting with media in the U.S. Many people even start their day by browsing through social media apps or replying to messages and emails.
Cutting down on screen time is essential as it can help you unwind and de-stress while improving mental awareness and boosting daily productivity levels. Constant notifications can make it tempting for you to constantly check your phone, which then takes up hours of your time as your mindlessly scroll through Facebook or Instagram.
A digital detox will keep you re-energized and help you stay connected with the natural world around you.
If you find yourself stressing out over negative situations in your life, then one of the simplest ways to introduce positivity into your daily routine is by practicing gratitude.
This can shift your attention from all the negativity and help you focus on the more important and positive things in life. Studies show that practicing gratitude can lead to numerous benefits, such as sharpening brain functions, improving relationships, and boosting your overall happiness levels while alleviating anxiety and depression symptoms.
Keep a diary by your bedside and make a list of 5 things you're grateful for each day. You can then flip back and assess your journey. You’ll notice how your mind and thoughts have changed over time.
Sit In An Infrared Sauna
Sitting in a relaxing sauna every day can boost white blood cells' production, strengthening your immunity. Stress can adversely affect immunity, which is why sauna sessions are important as they eliminate anxiety by controlling cortisol levels and providing relaxation.
An infrared sauna helps you release impurities from your body in the form of sweat for detoxification.
But make sure you’re well-hydrated throughout the experience. Drink a full glass of water before you step in. You can also take a bottle with you.
With autumn approaching and that cold chill returning to the air, infrared saunas sessions are a great way to relax and are safe to use every day. You can have very own personal infrared sauna installed at your home to enjoy its numerous benefits.
