5 Simple Self-Care Hacks for You

You work selflessly to ensure the glasses of others are half full. But it’s important to take a moment to serve yourself, too. We wanted to share some simple but effective self-care hacks that benefit your sleep, mindset, and wellbeing. After all, you can’t pour from an empty cup.

Self-care (noun): the practice of taking an active role in protecting one's own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress.

Caregivers work tirelessly putting the needs of others before their own. Simple acts of self-care can reduce stress and boost your overall physical and mental health. Try incorporating these simple but effective self-care hacks into your daily routine to reap the benefits and fill up your cup. 

  1. Stretching before bed boosts sleep quality and rejuvenates the body so you’ll wake up feeling refreshed
  2. Take a moment to yourself to delight in a cup of hot tea or coffee, or try starting your morning with hot water with lemon—it’s filled with powerful antioxidants like vitamin C!
  3. Instead of reaching for your phone first thing, taking a moment to slowly wake up and acknowledge how you’re feeling can help you be more intentional with your day
  4. Journaling is a positive outlet for dealing with a build-up of negative feelings or expressing frustration and can improve your relationships
  5. Thinking of one thing you are grateful for each day is simple and is linked to improved physical and mental health
