Self-care is essential 365 days a year. But some of us need to practice it a bit more during the winter months.
Write in a Journal
Writing in a journal is a great practice all year round – especially at the beginning of the new year.
Journalling is a great place to be completely open and honest.
It also allows you to reflect, learn, and grow.
Spend Time With Friends
We all need to socialize – even introverts!
Spending time with friends helps us relax, laugh, and try new things.
But what if you and your friends have entirely different schedules?
Thanks to technology, spending time with friends doesn’t always have to be an in-person event. A weekly Skype call is much better than nothing.
Put it on the Calendar
We are much more likely to get things done when they are written down in a calendar.
Practicing self-care doesn’t have to be an entire event to be effective. You can definitely start slow and work your way up.
Taking a bath, reading a book or doing a puzzle are all great self-care activities.
