Self-care For All

In Blog by Achieve Wellness Spa

Self-care is something that looks different for all of us, but we are all realizing that it’s especially important during these difficult times. Due to spending more time at home than we are accustomed to, family and household demands are more obvious and we are often left feeling more drained than usual. During these moments, it’s important to take time for yourself, doing something to help you recharge and feel ready to tackle another day, or another week when life is feeling a little repetitive. Whether it’s another five Zoom meetings, or playing the same game with your toddler for the third time that day, having something to help you recharge and reset is a must. 

Self-care comes in many different forms, and different methods work better for different people. Here are 5 self-care tactics to help you recharge and reset:

Sleep: A good night’s sleep can be the difference between a good day or a bad day. Waking up well rested makes it easier to handle the stresses of daily life and gives you the energy to be your best self. Going to bed at a consistent time each night and reading before bed are great ways to help you wind down and relax before bed.

Time Outdoors: With spring right around the corner the opportunity to get outdoors is back! Time outdoors helps to relieve stress, provide perspective and just escape from the day to day of our lives. Plan times during your busy week  to get outdoors can be simple as taking a walk during your lunch break or planning a weekend hike.

Massage: Self-care and massages are a match made in heaven. From helping to alleviate aches and pains, to providing a perfect escape and ultimate relaxation, making time to get a massage is well worth the investment.

Exercise: Keeping fit can help control weight and reduce certain health risks, but it can also play a big role in our mental health. When we exercise we get a release of endorphins which produce positive feelings, while simultaneously helping to regulate stress and anxiety meaning that even a few minutes of exercise a day can leave you feeling happier. 

Pampering: The word itself might have you thinking of unnecessary or overly expensive, but pampering yourself doesn’t have to be over the top or break the bank. It can be as simple as a professional manicure or a facial over a couple of months. At Achieve Wellness we pride ourselves on making wellness affordable, and we have plenty of options that are cost effective and time effective. This means you don’t have to feel guilty taking time for a little pampering. 

Whether it’s taking a mid day nap, spending some time outside, getting in a good workout, or taking a hot bath we all have something that makes us feel like a better version of ourselves. Here at Achieve, we offer a large variety of services that get you out of your house for a few hours and feel like the best version of you in the process. Whether it’s a massage, pedicure or treating yourself to some of our at home pampering products, we all deserve to feel a little more relaxed these days.
