7 self care habits

Written by Dixie Brown | Lotus Healing | KNOW Asheville

1. Try meditations
Meditations have a way of improving your mood, helping you to relax, and come to realizations.
Meditations can also help you to gather your innermost strength to face tough situations.

Here’s how to meditate properly:
• Take about 5 minutes out of your daily schedule to meditate.
• Assume a very comfortable sitting or lying position.
• Close your eyes
• Inhale and exhale slowly; pay attention to your breathing
• Tune out every noise in your mind and just feel the moment.
You will feel centered after that. You get better at meditations when you practice more of it.

2. Do something amazing for your well-being
It feels nice to stay in your comfort zone. But, that is one of the reasons why you are not getting ahead. Make a bold move, do something amazing for your well-being.

3. Read self-help and educational books
Read books that will improve your vocabulary, memory, and cognitive skills. Also, read self-help materials as well as publications that can improve your overall well-being.

Reading will mold you into an intelligent person. It will be great if you can read at least one new book a month.

4. Learn a new skill
There is no end to the things you can learn in this world.

Try coding, photography, baking, and even entrepreneurship. You can also learn how to play a musical instrument. This will make you a more diverse person.

5. Take care of your mind and body
Exercise more to reduce the risk of heart and other diseases. You can start small by exercising 2-3 times a week and then gradually increasing it to 5 times a week.

Drink more water as well. Replace all your soda intakes with water. Eat more veggies and fruits as well.

Adopting these self-care habits will help you to get more energy, and you won’t make frequent trips to the hospital.

6. Become more family-oriented
This depends on your current relationship with your family. If you haven’t been paying attention to your family, dedicate the whole weekend or your days off to your family and relatives.

7. Reduce social media and TV time
To be more productive, you need to cut down on certain habits to make time for the others you want to add to your life.
Reducing the time you spend on social media and watching TV will help you make time for others.

Remember, our discovery sessions are always free of charge!
