Today, we have 3 self care tips that women can practice daily. I think most women know that they should practice self-care every day, but many of us don’t.
Why? For the same reason we need a daily self-care practice…because we are busy!
Busy people are always putting someone else ahead of their needs, and that is how stress happens. Let’s fix that.
Hello and welcome to Fearlessly Holistic.
My name is Irma and I want to share my journey to improved health by eating whole foods, moving my body and eliminating stress as much as possible.
It is my hope to inspire you to make daily changes. Why? Because eating fresh, seasonal food, getting some sunshine, and reducing stress is the best way to increase longevity. But you do not want just a long life.
You want a quality long life, and you want to look and feel your best while you live it.

What is Self-Care?
“Self-care” broadly describes listening to our body and addressing its needs. Self-care is a good way to ensure you can keep your mind and body as healthy and positive as possible.
It might seem as though this would be a hard thing to do, especially when you are busy and have people other than yourself to take care of.
But if you don’t take any time to care for your own needs, you can become sick, sad, and you may simply not enjoy your life.
That would be such a shame when self-care can be so easy to incorporate into your life.
All you need is a few techniques to start a daily self-care routine.
If you’re not sure where to start, read on to find some useful tips for the best – and simplest – self-care practices to include in your life.
3 Simple Self-Care Tips
Take A Break
When things start to get harder, and you’re getting more and more tired, what is the best thing to do?
Should you push onward to get your tasks finished, even though you might not be giving your full attention or doing your best work?
Or should you take a break?
Perhaps not surprisingly, it’s the latter option.
Taking a break might seem as though it’s going to put you further behind, but in reality, it can help you become a lot more productive.
You’ll have the chance to be reenergized and to become less stressed. When it is time you get back to what you were doing, you’ll be able to finish the work not just more quickly, but to a higher quality as well.
You can do anything when you take this break.
You can spend five minutes outside breathing in fresh air, you can read a book or listen to music. You can even take a longer break when you need one and visit Restorations Health Care for therapy if you need extra help.
The point is, taking breaks is crucial and is such an easy form of self-care.
Have A Good Daily Routine
Something else that’s easy to do is to stick to a good daily routine.
Getting up at the same time, taking breaks at the same time, finishing work at the same time, going to bed at the same time… this will all help.
To begin with, your body will start to get used to what you want it to do, and that will make things easier physically.
It should even make getting to sleep easier, and that’s very important in terms of your health.
Plus, it means you’ll be calm and collected because you’ll always know what you’re supposed to be doing and where you’re meant to be.
This means less stress in your life, and that equals more happiness.
Boost Your Immune System
If you’re serious about self-care, something that will help you immensely is taking care of your immune system.
If you can focus on that, your overall health will be much better.
A good way to ensure your immune system is healthy is to eat a well balanced diet.
Eating a variety of nutrients will provide your immune system, and the rest of your body, with everything it needs to work well.
You should also exercise daily, drink plenty of water, and sleep between seven and nine hours a night.
Doing all of this will improve your immune system and can be part of your everyday self-care practices too.
I have tried plenty of ways to increase the self-care in my life, and all of it has been beneficial.
- I’ve set hourly reminders to get up and stretch to stay limber
- I also have a reminder to do monthly self-care, like a home pedicures.
- And of course, I recommend a clean, whole foods diet with plenty of fresh, seasonal produce.
When you give your body fresh nutrients, well of course it will work better for you!
Holism targets overall wellness, and when we are well, we only get better with age.
Eat the best food that you can afford to give your body the building blocks it needs for optimal health, longevity, and looking good for as long as possible.
