With the kids back in school, it’s time to recharge your battery, so to speak, by setting aside some quality time for your well-being. Research indicates that even the smallest self-care acts pay off big dividends for both your mental and physical health. So, our only question to you is: how do you practice self-care? Here are a few ideas that might inspire you:
We love walking because it doesn’t require a gym membership, special workout equipment or clothing — just YOU! Plus, you can walk anywhere, it’s easier on your joints than running or jogging, and the health benefits of walking are irrefutable. Walking burns calories, strengthens your heart, lowers your blood sugar, eases joint pain, boosts immunity, increases energy, improves mood, extends your longevity, and so on.
TLC for your skin (Tender LASER Care, that is!)
Now that the brutal summer sun has finally calmed down, it’s the perfect time to schedule laser skin treatments. Here are three that will boost your quality of life immeasurably.
• Laser Hair Removal is one of the most popular laser skin treatments because it offers long-lasting gratification and ease. A series of treatments will free you from years of embarrassing stubble and rashes on your bikini line, legs, and underarms.
• Laser Acne Treatment is another life-enhancing treatment that can dramatically improve problem skin, reducing or even eliminating breakouts for brighter, clearer, more evenly-toned skin without downtime, topical creams, or drugs.
• Photofacials are the go-to treatment for reversing sun-damaged skin and revealing a brighter, more evenly-toned complexion without downtime.
Making your bed
We hate to admit it, but what Mom nagged you about your entire childhood turns out to be one of the smartest and simplest self-care tools ever. Tidying your sheets every morning starts your day off with an accomplishment, and when you accomplish something, it lowers stress and boosts your mood. Besides being nice to look at, a well-made bed also makes your room look cleaner, which is another big health plus. Research indicates that maintaining a tidy home and work space encourages feelings of serenity and positivity while also helping you to focus and be more productive.
