We all make them; we all break them. We’re talking about those pesky New Year’s resolutions. We won’t be suggesting losing weight, so relax. For the upcoming year there are some easy-to-keep self-care promises we can make to ourselves.
Say “NO” Sometimes
Many of us feel obligated to tackle any new project proposed at work, by friends and even your family. You do not have to do everything. Give yourself a break, know when to say no, and try not to allow any guilt bother you. If you happen to be someone who always agrees to take on more, that’s probably why you continue to be asked. Try an stop the cycle.
Step back, think about everything already on your plate, and politely say, “No, I can’t do that.”
Hang Out With Positive People
Skip friendships with people who bring you down. You know who they are; they always have something to complain about, something to be unhappy about, and never are positive. Try intentionally spending less time with them, and more time with happy, energetic and fun people.
Keep To A Sleep Schedule
This might be the most important self-care promise of all. Getting enough sleep can change your whole outlook. We become healthier, smarter, more focused, and relaxed.
Pick a time to go to sleep. We mean darken your bedroom, no TV, no smart phone and just getting into bed is not what works. Maybe take a warm bath or utilize essential oils and scents to relax you. Shoot for minimum 6-7 hours per night.
Put Yourself On The Calendar
Everything in the world is on our calendars: appointments, work projects, caregiving, errands, meetings, getting the children to after school activities. You get the idea. Give yourself time for just yourself.
- Sit in the sunshine for just a few minutes each day
- Choose a time to do some relaxing personal reading.
- Have a cup to tea or other beverage and watch a movie.
These kinds of “Just Me” moments help you relax and rejuvenate. Don’t feel guilty, just enjoy.
Drink More Water
Seems obvious but many of us forget to stay hydrated. Give yourself the luxury of improving your skin as well as improving your health. Maybe substitute that 2nd or 3rd cup of coffee with water every day. Helps rid your body of unwanted toxins and will make you feel like you can rule the world. (almost)
The Last Tip
Don’t stress over what you can’t do. If you can conquer 3 out of the 6 resolutions, OK, that’s an improvement. Pat yourself on the back, Then work on some of the others. You might even find you will lose some weight.
