September is Self-Care Awareness Month, a time to remember that taking care of yourself is essential. Self-care is anything you do to stay physically, mentally, and emotionally well.
Engaging in a self-care routine has been clinically proven to reduce or eliminate anxiety and depression, reduce stress, and increase happiness along with reducing heart disease, stroke, and cancer; it can also help you find meaning in life.
Self-care benefits your own physical health and mental wellbeing, but the benefits of self-care reach far beyond yourself. You’re better able to show up in your personal and professional lives when you make time to care for yourself.
Take time this month to prioritize self-care, and remember, self-care doesn’t have to be time-consuming, demanding, or complicated. To help get you started, some of your favorite Wellbeats instructors are sharing their best self-care tips—including their own favorite ways to practice self-care.
My self-care tip is simple: Do something that brings you JOY! Obviously, bigger items, like travel, are huge on my list. But my easy-to-do items are:
Exercise is a natural mood-booster! Prioritize self-care by prioritizing your workouts. This is now even easier to do with the scheduling feature in your Wellbeats app!
