August is National Wellness Month and your physical and mental health matter, this month and every month. So, during your busy lives, make sure to take some time for yourself and practice self-care. We compiled some tips that you can use to easily take care of your body and mind. You’re worth it.
Take Time to Relax
This may seem simple, but it’s hard to find time for yourself in your busy life. Between work or school, activities outside of your job, seeing family and friends and more, it’s difficult to focus on yourself.
To combat this, take at least 30 minutes to do something truly relaxing. This could be a session of yoga, a combination of stretching and breathing exercises or meditating. Simply do anything that takes your mind off your busy life and lets you free your mind. These activities can do wonders for the body and mind such as improving cardiovascular health and managing your stress.

While taking care of your skin with products like sunscreen, exfoliates and others are important, taking care of your eyes matters just as much. Eyecare is simple too: wear sunglasses when in the sun and take breaks when using electronics for long periods of time. An easy tip to remember when using electronics is to look at an object 20 feet away for 20 seconds, every 20 minutes.

This tip may seem obvious since we’re told all our lives the best way to stay healthy is to eat well and exercise. Now exercising isn’t for everyone. Not everybody can do Crossfit five times a week with multiple hour-long workouts the other two days a week – and that’s okay. No matter your comfort level with exercise, you can still practice getting your heart rate up. All you have to do is perform a work out that you feel comfortable doing to keep you active and healthy.
While exercise is clearly good for your body, it’s equally as good for your brain. When your heart rate increases, your brain gets more oxygen and it aids hormone releases, which provide the environment for your brain cells to grow.

Ever heard of the phrase, ‘look good, feel good?’ When you dress well, in clothes that you’re comfortable and feel good in, it’s natural that you’ll feel better about yourself. By liking what you’re wearing, you gain more confidence, thus we feel good about ourselves as a whole.
When you’re picking out your outfit for work, shopping or even to run errands, make sure you’re choosing something you feel good in. We don’t have to dress up for every occasion, but it benefits to dress to impress. Impress who? Yourself, of course!
