As we all go through our daily lives it can be easy for us to get wrapped up into habits that don’t necessarily leave us feeling the best. We believe everyone should feel amazing about themselves all the time – seriously! Since we’re all about body confidence this week, we thought this was the perfect time to share some daily habits that help you feel good about yourself. Because truthfully, we all need to get in the habit of doing things that make us feel good… every… single… day.
Get into a Morning Routine
Many experts have found that when we incorporate (and stick to!) a morning routine we’re able to start our days off in a much more positive note. Let’s be honest, it’s hard to feel really awesome about yourself when you’re rushing to get ready and out the door in the morning. We’ve all had those mornings where you throw on whatever you can find first, with barely enough time to grab something to eat or drink before rushing out of the door. Instead of starting your day chaotic, make a routine that feels good to you and really allows you to feel calmer and collected in the morning.
It can be so difficult to feel actually present in the moment, especially in the world we live in today. But since we do live in such a fast-paced society, it’s also easy for us to lose touch with ourselves and what we really want in our lives. Lately, there’s been a ton of chatter around making meditation and visualization a part of your daily habit. More and more research has come out to show the immense benefits of incorporating these things into your life on a daily basis. When we’re caught up in life, it’s easy to forget what our real goals are, what we’re actually working towards, and just appreciating ourselves. Start making it a habit to get present, and remember why you’re doing what you’re doing.
Get into an Evening Routine
You’re probably wondering what’s up with all the routines, but there’s a lot of benefits that come along with creating more routine in your life. We love living spontaneously, but when it comes to waking up and going to bed there’s more proof to show routine has more benefit. If you just roll into bed whenever you think you’re tired, you probably have a rather mixed up sleep schedule (which then throws off your morning routine), and you probably don’t feel as relaxed going to bed as you’d like… well, you get the point. Get yourself into a routine, you’ll feel more rested and it will give you a chance to give yourself the self-care you need to feel better about yourself.
