We see the word “self-care” get thrown around a lot. And while it’s not a crime to treat yourself to something fancy once in a while, it also doesn’t hurt to do self-love exercises that are more sustainable in the long run and whose benefits include not spending a lot of money. Today, we’re stopping in the name of love to take a gander at ways you can practice meaningful self-care, whether it’s the love month or not.
1. Invest in your health.
The correct answer to the question “When’s the best time to take care of your health?” is “Yesterday.” But the good news is you can still start today—and you should. Take eating habits for example. It’s okay to include a rotation of your favorite snacks in your diet as long as you balance it with food that nourishes your body with the vitamins and minerals it needs.
It makes sense to keep your digestion healthy because a healthy gut allows you to enjoy your food better, absorb nutrients, and in turn gives you more energy that lasts longer, something that an excess in sugar or caffeine won’t do. You can also help strengthen your gut by taking apple cider vinegar supplements like BestShape to help you digest properly and feel fuller for longer.
2. Take up a new hobby.
We’re not going to be the ones to tell you to lock up your gadgets, leave the house, and touch some grass. But if like many people you have been itching to do something with your time other than work, TV, and errands, this might be a good time to pick up a new hobby. Or pick up where you left off with an old one.
3. Declutter your home and your mind.
One of the best ways to reclaim your sense of self and your space is by getting rid of things you no longer need. To be fair, letting go isn’t an easy task and sometimes it takes more than just moving boxes or trash bags to get it done. It’s an exercise of honesty too because you may have to confront a closetful of things you’ve been meaning to tackle but somehow can’t find the time. But you don’t have to do everything in one day.
Start small by taking on one shelf at a time and put away in boxes anything you can donate, sell, and throw out. If you’re not ready to deal with physical shelves, get started with your digital folders. Regain your cloud storage by deleting photos and other files that crowd your phone’s memory. You’d be surprised how giving your wardrobe or even a drawer full of tupperware room to breathe can be good for your mind too.
It’s easier to assume that love is tantamount to accepting ourselves and others for who we are. But the thing is, love gives us an opportunity to change and grow so that we can enjoy the long-term benefits of the love we can act upon. So the next time you decide on doing something for the sake of self-love, consider prioritizing what is helpful to your health whether physically or mentally. Whether you’re just starting with your self-love journey or you’re recalibrating to make it better, you can always get started with keeping your gut and body healthy with BestShape Apple Cider Vinegar Supplements.
