3 Tips for Putting Yourself First This Year

Modern life can be stressful, we often feel pulled in many directions. It can be overwhelming trying to juggle everything, from family commitments, through to work, and then add in trying to maintain a home and it can often feel like pure chaos. One of my goals for this year is putting myself first, so that I have more energy to give to those who I care about. If that’s something you’d like to focus on too, read on to learn more about how to put yourself first this year.

1. Don’t Neglect Your Feet
Often one of the areas that are overlooked, our feet are really important. They’re what support us, and allow us to live our lives. Depending on your normal routine, neglecting your feet may look different for you. Before the pandemic I would always regularly go for pedicures and ensure my feet looked their best. But with everything that’s come to pass, it hasn’t been possible. Depending on what state your feet are now in, it may be worth investing in some professional foot care. https://spectrumhealthcare.com/services/specialized-services/foot-care-clinics/ have a range of services to help get your feet in their best condition.

2. Do What You Love
How many times a day, or a week, do you do things that you love? Whether it’s enjoying a bottle of wine in your bath, or meeting friends for a drink. Maybe you feel your best when you’re at the gym lifting some weights. Whatever makes you really happy and content should be those things that you focus on doing a few times a week. If wine is something that helps you unwind, why not consider setting up a regular delivery so that you know it’s going to be there when you need it most?

3. Get Extra Help
I’m a big supporter of getting extra help when you need it. Whether it’s a paid service, or leaning on friends and family to help you get through a difficult stage, it can make a world of difference. It can be small things, or big things, such as using a moving company like ttps://www.mybekins.com/locations/anaheim-ca-movers/ to take care of the heavy lifting the next time you move home. Maybe it’s also employing a monthly cleaning service to take care of the deep cleaning in your home, so you have a little extra time to spend with your loved ones. If you’re feeling a little burned out after various quarantines at home with your kids, why not ask the grandparents or family friends if they’d mind watching them for a night? You can even set up a trade with other parents so you take their kids, and then they take yours so you both end up with a bit of free time.

It can be hard to put ourselves first, but it’s one of the best things you can do for recharging your batteries and feeling your best. Hopefully these tips give you some ideas of how you can do implement it a little more in your daily life.
