5 Self-Care Habits to Practice Every Day

Self-care is not just taking a shower and brushing your teeth every day. Though, those are a couple things you should practice regularly, self-care goes deeper. Because self-care is essential to better your mental wellness, you should take the steps to put yourself first, even when you are busy. By putting yourself first, you can manage your emotions, alleviate stress, and feel grounded in your everyday life.

Our therapist in Winter Park recommends that the best thing to do is pick up self-care habits that you practice at specific times throughout your schedule. The little daily reminders spread throughout the day, telling you that you are important too. Here are some of the best self-care habits you can practice every day.

Take a Walk

Walking, jogging, and running can help you clear your head. It gets you out in the fresh air, and it is also great for maintaining physical health. If you are not used to jogging or running, start with a walk in the park. Gradually progressing through this habit, it will become a great escape from cluttering thoughts and stress.

Meditate

Meditation and deep breathing are excellent ways to focus on your mental well-being for 5 minutes a day. Just sit with yourself and reflect. There is nothing wrong with disconnecting from the world and tuning in to yourself.

Find a Reason to Laugh

Life has enough sadness and anger. Find a reason to have a healthy laugh. Laughing regularly will help improve your mood for the day. A good joke, funny meme, or small clip from your favorite content creator can cause your entire day to be a wonderful day. Take a break when you need to and find a reason to just laugh.

Write it Down

There is no shame in taking a journal with you and writing out your feelings or thoughts. Use it to document your day, take notes for personal reference, or just to declutter your overloaded mind. Even if you only write in it at the end of the day, keeping a journal is an amazing self-care habit that can change your whole world.

Check Something Off Your List

That's right! I am calling you out. We all have a list of personal tasks we want to eventually get to. Something you put in the closet for a rainy day, or your favorite shorts you want to sew up and wear again. Check off an item from your list every day. It will improve your spirit and allow you to feel accomplished.

These are a few simple ways that you can practice self-care each and every day. When you take time to care for yourself, you can better your overall mental health and get on a path towards happiness and peace.
