Here are 5 simple self-care routines that you can practice at home to ensure good health and improve your physical wellbeing.
1, Drink water
This is such a simple practice and yet one that so many people overlook when they feel unwell. Water is freely available in the Western world, and yet we seem to favour hot drinks and fizzy pop. Try to drink a glass of water with your meals or balance your coffee intake with water throughout the day.
2, Deep breathing exercise
Stop what you are doing. Put down your phone or tablet. Close your eyes. Breathe in deeply, bringing the breath from as low down in your body as you can. Hold for a few seconds. And release. Repeat this a few times until you feel your body begin to relax. Your heart rate will slow down, your mind will slow down, and you will feel better.
3, Check your Hearing
It might sound obvious, but many people overlook the importance of ear care and eye care. You might like to consider booking an appointment with a specialist if you have struggled to hear properly recently or you feel that something isn’t quite right. Auris Ear Care can provide expert guidance to diagnose an ear infection or disorder.
4, Sleep Better
Many people struggle to sleep well. Try listening to soothing music as you fall asleep, perhaps a meditation playlist or relaxing sounds. I find our Alexa Echo Dot device very helpful when I’m struggling. Avoid eating and drinking unhealthy foods close to bedtime. Try to drink water at least an hour before you go to bed so that you can clear the toxins (make sure you go to the toilet!)
5, Eat more Mindfully
Be aware of the food you consume. I notice that when I eat more stodgy food such as bread and pasta it affects my bowel movements and leaves me feeling bloated and uncomfortable. It helps if you can balance your meals with lighter foods, more vegetables and fruit for nutrients, and try to eat less processed meals if possible. Balance and moderation are key here.
