Now that the hustle and bustle of the holidays is behind us and you’ve had some time to settle into the new year, it’s time to get to work… on your 2019 self care plan that is. It’s easy to get caught up in the busy social world, your work, your love life, and family, but do not let another year go by with you forgetting the importance of taking good care of your mental and physical health and well being. Taking a little time to think about, plan ahead and set down some actionable items towards a personal self care plan will make sure you’re looking and feeling great all year. Here are some great self care ideas to consider.
1. Acupuncture. While the idea of having needles sticking out of your body for extended lengths of time can sound scary, acupuncture is actually quite painless and incredibly relaxing. The ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture is used for preventative care of illness and increased flow and balance of energy. It can be used for simple, deep relaxation or even treatment of skin issues and other health problems. Acupuncture treatments can even help you quit smoking. From anxiety to loss of appetite, acupuncture is a great, holistic and all natural way to increase your well being and a good thing to include for personal care.
2. Pamper. Whether you love a nice long bath before bed or visit to your favorite day spa, don’t forget to treat yourself to a little pamper at least once a month. On a regular basis however, it’s always nice to invest in little affordable beauty luxuries such an amazing moisturizer, perfume or new lipstick. These small but important items add a little pamper to your beauty routine and will make you feel pampered and happy.
