The Fall 2020 Self-Care Challenge: How to Prioritize Wellness Daily
The Fall season is almost officially here, and it’s bringing plenty of stressors along with it. In the wake of COVID-19, there’s never been a more important time to prioritize your physical and mental well-being. Self-care is a tried and true way to help increase happiness and maintain sanity amidst life’s chaos.
Self-care is all about giving your brain and body a break. The problem is that it’s hard to slow down and set aside the time for self-care. It’s one thing to put off a day at the spa, but it’s another thing to neglect your basic self-care needs (which many of us do when we’re stressed out!) When you’re not giving yourself the attention and care you need regularly, illness and burnout creep in. So, how can you restore your peace of mind through small, attainable goals?
A self-care challenge could be the perfect solution when you don’t know where to start. These kinds of challenges hold you accountable for weaving in wellness-oriented habits into your daily routine. A dedicated commitment to taking care of yourself is one of the best ways to proactively strengthen your immune system and combat stress. Wouldn’t you feel good knowing that you’re making time for your well-being each day? It’ll not only feel great, but chances are you’ll also be a better version of yourself around your family and friends.
There are immense long-term benefits of creating daily intentions to focus on wellness. In the world we live in, taking care of your mind and body is no longer an option—it’s a necessity. Don’t overthink self care! Try to make it something small and enjoyable that you can look forward to prioritizing every day.
