Top 3 #MentalQs for Evolving “Self Care”

???? Let’s take a New York minute to discuss one of the most overused and abused buzz words of 2019: Self-Care. ⠀ ⠀ When someone says “Self-Care,” our brain instantly conjures up endless spa days and brunches, a weekend “wanderlust” trip, or expensive items captioned #treatyourself on Instagram Stories.⠀ ⠀ While taking care of oneself is important, it seems like we’ve lost our grasp of the core of what self-care actually means. So let’s try to focus less on the crystals, and more on how the crystals shape us to be more mindful of our well-being.⠀ ⠀ Here are our top 3 #MentalQs for evolving your daily self-care practices in and out of the office ????⠀ ⠀ ???? Control Your Calendar | If you live your life by your calendar, then don’t forget to schedule a time to take care of yourself. Whether it’s a 20-minute midday walk or 30-minute journal session before bed, make your self-care accountable. Better yet – invite a friend!⠀ ⠀ ???? Make Room for Mindfulness | It’s 2020, so you knew this was coming: make time to meditate. If meditation isn’t your thing, find 5 minutes a day to do some breathing exercises.⠀ ⠀ ???? Get Active | Natural! Dopamine! Is! Awesome! Take a page out of @ty_haney’s book and just try #DoingThings. Jog, stretch, dance, or (one of our favorites) stand! Yes, this is us encouraging you to ask your supervisor for a standing desk.
