The concept of self-care is becoming more and more mainstream these days, but how many of us truly know what counts as self-care and how to make it part of our daily lives? If you’re anything like us, you have likely felt the pressure of too many priorities to manage at once, and your personal goals often fall to the bottom of the list, and stay there. Life is full of unexpected events and challenges, so don’t feel bad if that describes you! Most of us are right there with you.
At Solace Wellness Center & MedSpa, we are devoted to helping our patients rediscover self-care in achievable ways that are best for their unique goals and lifestyle. Your wellness is our priority! This spring, we hope these tips can help you put yourself back on your own priority list — after all, you deserve as much care and compassion as you give to others!
Embrace self-care every day with these tips:
Rethink your bedtime routine
We all know that not getting enough sleep is bad for us, but of course that doesn’t make it any easier to remove the aspects of our lives that can make good sleep so elusive. Still, you can help yourself fall asleep and stay asleep by making small changes to your bedtime routine, like avoiding phone, television and laptop screens right before bed and not eating or drinking right before bed, especially things containing caffeine or sugar.
Reducing stress can seem like a lofty goal, but it can definitely help you get better sleep! Everyone’s stress-reducing methods are different, but if you know what kinds of activities help you reduce stress, whether that’s reading, a bath, some yoga stretches, music or anything else, find a way to do that before you fall asleep, even if just for 10 minutes.
Of course if you struggle with sleep apnea, as so many do, these tips and tricks may not be enough to truly improve your quality of sleep. That is why, here in Tewksbury, we are proud to be certified providers of The Vivos® System! This multidisciplinary treatment protocol may treat your sleep apnea and sleep disordered breathing issues. Best of all, the Vivos System treats the root cause for sleep apnea, not just the symptoms, providing long-lasting relief without surgery, drugs or downtime.
Prioritize your health (both physical and mental)
A healthy diet doesn’t have to be one where you only ever eat salads, lean proteins and whole grains. You can improve your diet just by factoring in more of these things than you’re currently eating! Avoiding processed foods is easier said than done, but if you prepare healthy meals that make plenty of leftovers, you don’t have to cook from scratch every day — perhaps aim for three nights a week. This way you’re getting healthy foods daily even if you’re still including the quicker, more processed options as well. The point to remember is that, with processed foods, moderation is key.
Because it’s difficult to eat a 100% healthy diet every day, most of us are deficient in one or more essential vitamins and nutrients, which often leaves us not feeling our best. That’s where we can help give you a boost with IV Nutrient Therapy! You can restore healthy nutrient levels and enjoy the benefits including improved energy, enhanced immunity, improved cell repair and function, and much more.
Improving your mental wellness can take many forms and is unique to each of us, but one good way to start is by practicing saying “no” when asked to do things you know could or should be done by someone else or at another time. It’s hard to say “no,” especially to people you care about, but when we say “yes” to everything, we are adding more to our own plate than we may be able to handle, which can lead to feelings of resentment, stress or being overwhelmed. Saying “no” can even help you realize how often you typically say “yes” when you may not need to. Remember that your time is valuable and your wellness is valuable too!
We can even help you find intense stress relief right here in our office, with Far Infrared Sauna sessions. Our Far Infrared Sauna provides gentle, therapeutic heat to promote relaxation while healing and detoxifying your body. With anti-inflammatory benefits, this sauna delivers amazing health improvements while leaving you fully refreshed and relaxed after each session.
