Amid the global pandemic, job losses, and the 24/7 news cycle, self-care has become more important than ever. Americans everywhere are exhibiting increased levels of depression and anxiety. We have been forced to turn our bedrooms and kitchen tables into makeshift offices. Many parents are struggling to juggle full-time jobs and homeschooling
When life gets hectic, self-care is often the first thing many people sacrifice. This new year, we urge everyone to commit to self-care. Making self-care part of your routine is not only crucial for your mental health, but it also enables you to be more productive and creative.
Here are some ways you can make yourself a priority in 2021.
Sunlight is known to increase the release of a hormone called serotonin, which is associated with boosting mood. Social distancing doesn’t mean you need to spend every day and every hour inside your home. Make it a habit to open your blinds and let in the sunshine. Find time each day to step outside and take a stroll around the neighborhood.
If you’re in Connecticut, there are plenty of hiking trails that provide scenic pathways for casual nature-lovers and highly-skilled hikers alike. Bring along your furry friend on a weekend hike in Connecticut and stay the night at any of the dog-friendly Delamar locations.
Don’t Skip Any Meals
Sometime a busy work week and schedule can cause you to skip meals. Your body needs fuel to perform and keep running the heathiest way possible. Make it priority to log off, sit down and enjoy a nice meal.
Can’t find time in your busy schedule? Take your lunch break at a local restaurant or set up a date night with your significant other. Even if you need to bring your laptop, the change of scenery can help lighten your spirits and allow your body a much-needed break. Artisan Southport, as well as l’escale restaurant in Greenwich are open for lunch, offering artfully curated menus with locally and seasonally inspired dishes, as well as an exhaustive wine list.
Pamper Yourself with a Spa Day
Numerous studies and research confirm the benefits of a massage for your health and wellbeing, some of which include reducing anxiety, stress, blood pressure, sleep insomnia, muscle strains, and more.
Facials are also a wonderful way to give yourself some healing and rejuvenating TLC while treating specific concerns. Amongst the most important health benefits of having regular facials are: stress relief, purifies and reduce skin congestion (mask wearing is a big factor here), encourages lymphatic flow, and promotes circulation. You can choose a relaxing treatment or pick a high-tech option.
A facial = circulation = healthy, vibrant skin. Remember to also stay healthy by giving yourself plenty of time to rest, following a healthy diet, and being active for beautiful, glowing skin.
Take time to relax your body and mind and book yourself a spa day at Delamar Spas.
