6 Easy Self-Care Tips

Are you guilty of not taking time for self-care?

Here are 6 powerful self-care tips to get you started.

As care givers, parents and business owners, we take time to care for others needs and spend very little time on our own needs and self-care. This habit can have serious health risks.Self-care tips - Interpersonal Wellness - Wellness Coaching

Here are six self-care tips I have used to keep my high functioning and well:

  • Rest – Don’t compromise with your rest. I will go to bed early and I rest every Saturday for at least 2 hours.
  • Power naps – Take power naps during the day. 15 to 30 minutes should do
  • Exercise – I exercise 5 times per week for 30 – 50 minutes because it is a great way to get oxygen to my cells and strengthen my heart
  • Eliminate Low Nutrition Foods – Identify and eradicate most high stress foods they take vital energy from my body. I ask myself, will the ingredients in this food produce healthy cells in my body? If no, then I remove it from my diet or eat it sparingly
  • Relationships – Strengthening relationships with people who are positive, healthy, joyful, generous and grateful.  I have learnt to keep my interactions with “mind sappers” and “energy sappers” to a limit. I pray for them but I don’t need to have daily lengthy conversations with them.
  • Supplements – Add the right supplements that add value to your body. I listen to my body and not the latest fads. I use my diet as a guideline and ensure I am getting a whole nutrition in my foods or I supplement to make up.

As we get older, our cells lose their resiliency, making us more susceptible to fatigue, depression and many chronic diseases. This will occur naturally with age, however, having a demanding, high stressed lives requires extra reinforcements. We can all use new self-care tips. Due to the development, experts from the website found that the simultaneous use of clarithromycin/oxytetracycline with Amoxicillin reduces the therapeutic effect of its active substance. The combination of Amoxicillin with lansoprazole aggravates stomach and intestine diseases. The use of metacycline- and minocycline-containing drugs with Amoxicillin reduces the therapeutic effect of the latter. The combination of Amoxicillin with methotrexates increases the toxicity of the latter. The combination of these drugs is not recommended.

Remember, healthy people should practice self-care because home-care is for the sick and elderly.

Hope these self-care tips help you as you get through the busy holiday season.
