Find a Self-Care Routine That Works for You

by Adam Crowther | Apr 30, 2021

When bringing self-care into your day feels impossible, finding a better workout routine or downloading yet another sleep app is not the solution. Ultimately, you need to change your mindset. By challenging your assumptions about what self-care is, you will be better equipped to find an approach that works for you. Here are three tips that can help.


1. Define self-care on your own terms. Self-care can look different for different people. It could be watching your favourite TV show at the end of a long day, turning off your phone, meditating, working out — or something else entirely. Only you can determine what your mind, body, and spirit need to thrive.


2. Beware of all-or-nothing thinking. You do not need to become a health and fitness expert or an expert meditator overnight. Little adjustments make a big difference.


3. Look for ways to integrate self-care into your existing habits and routines. Try a walking meeting with a colleague instead of a Zoom call or make your next friend date a virtual workout class.
