(NC) We can all use more quality time for ourselves. Here are three easy self-care practices for any day of the week.
■ Try incorporating yoga into your daily routine. Doing something active for your mind and your body has a multitude of health and wellness benefits, from relieving stress and anxiety to increasing strength and flexibility.
■ Making choices to create a healthy work-life balance is another way to care for yourself and your wellbeing. Learn to set limits by saying no when work time demands are too high. Shorten your to-do list and delegate or cut any extra tasks. By setting limits and boundaries, you can improve your relationship with yourself and your loved ones.
■ Winding down before bed is a great time to transform your daily skin routine into a self-care ritual. When applying a serum or moisturizer, try using a facial roller to turn this nightly routine into a relaxing massage, says Chanel Cruz, a Shoppers beauty pro. This simple step can help ease muscle tension, decrease puffiness, and stimulate blood flow. Always roll upwards and in one direction under the jawline, under and along the cheekbone and upwards on the forehead.
