In stead of creating a new year resolution, why not focus on something a bit more attainable, and something better for you and everyone! Self-care.
Self-care has become an increasingly popular topic over the past few years, and it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon! In a nutshell, self-care is the practice of taking deliberate action to preserve or improve our mental, emotional and physical health. Self-improvement is often a theme in January, and with the New Year here, it’s a great time to re-evaluate our goals and how we are going to achieve them.
When properly done, self-care can have numerous benefits on your life as well as your work. More than just improving your health, it can also increase productivity, self-esteem and self-knowledge. Incorporating small acts of self-care into your workday could be a goal for you in 2020! Try it out! Here are a few ideas on how you can incorporate self-care into your day:
