Self-care also helps us sharpen our mental and physical health through better self-esteem, stress management, and overall well-being. These behaviors help provide balance in an increasingly overstimulating world. Self-care forms an essential part of a lifestyle that keeps us healthy, happy, and more in tune with our minds and bodies.  Self-care helps you maintain a healthy relationship with yourself, sometimes called self-love. To produce positive feelings and improve confidence:

  • Find somewhere beautiful – a park, the woods, or your kitchen – and just sit there. Be still and just appreciate the stillness. It’s meditative and calming. Make time for stillness regularly.
  • Create simple rituals of joy like making the bed and drinking lemon water every morning. Create easy-to-do rituals that ground your day no matter what life throws at you.
  • Cherish friends who’ve seen you at your worst and love you even more for it. Friends who selflessly love you for you without any agenda are priceless.
  • The more you eat green foods the more your taste buds change and you realize just how delicious food from the earth truly is. The lighter you feel, the better your skin looks, and the more energy you have.
  • Spending a lot more time at home does not mean you get to be a couch potato. Staying active keeps your body healthy physically, keeping your risk of chronic health issues down and lowering your chances of an acute illness like COVID-19. It also boosts your sense of well-being.
  • Research shows that working out in the Great Outdoors boosts self-esteem more than indoor exercise, especially for people with mental health difficulties. Outdoor exercise makes people feel more revitalized and energetic, as well as less tense, confused, depressed, and angry.
  • Snehana is a self-massage that is a calming, nurturing, and balances Vata. You could use sesame or herbal oils. Massage your scalp with Brahmi or Amalaki oil.
  • Heal the senses with chanting, color therapy, and aromatherapy; gemstones are also used to alleviate chronic grief. 
  • Focus on present without judging how we feel and what we think — can be both a liberating and healthy practice. This is known as mindfulness, and it has become an ever-more-mainstream practice in psychological therapy.
  • Keep high protein bites on hand to help you get to the end of your to-do list for the day. You’ve heard it before: Protein helps you feel full longer and avoid the energy crash you might experience after the high of a carb-heavy snack subsides.
