Don’t neglect your me-time
Have periods where you just take time out for yourself only. You are free to be selfish this period. Forget about work and everyone else and just spend time getting to know you and enjoying your company.
See your doctor
If you can afford it, have monthly or quarterly check-ups. Even if the check-up is once in a year, try to know the state of your body and health. Check your vital organs and leave no stones unturned. Also, if you are on prescription drugs, try not to neglect them.
End negative body talk
Stop body-shaming yourself. Love and embrace your body and looks because it is the only house you have to live in. Practice positive body talk and affirmations. This will help you love your body more and do whatever it takes to keep it strong and healthy.
Find a new hobby
Pick up new, fun and interesting hobbies that can help you unwind and relax after a hard day’s work. It will be great for your mind and also save you from boredom.
Go on a vacation
Whenever you can afford it, pack up and go on a vacation to any place of your choice. A change of environment can be all the healing you need sometimes. Take a fun vacation this year to stay healthy.
