Don’t forget to take care of yourself!

October 16, 2020

When you’re supporting friends and family abroad, finding the time to practice self-care can be difficult. It’s easy to forget, however, that you can’t take care of the people you love most without taking care of yourself first.

Here are three simple things you can do this week to boost your mood, improve your health, and reduce stress:

  1. Exercise 

Just 15 minutes of exercise per day has been proven to improve your well-being and keep you physically healthy. Even if you find it hard to get to the gym, simply taking a walk or stretching can release endorphins and sharpen your focus.

  1. Eat Healthy

Good nutrition is great self care. Adding fruits and vegetables to your diet is an easy way to improve your overall health. Foods like blueberries, strawberries, and acai berries have been shown to improve brain function and prevent inflammation, making you feel more energized throughout the day.

  1. Call a friend

Our friendships have a major impact on our health and well-being. Rather than sending a text or communicating via social media, try giving a friend a call. You might be surprised how a quick chat can give you a different perspective and help you solve ongoing problems in your life.
