Self Care Practices for a Healthy Mind, Body and Spirit

Lately, I've been trying to get into the habit of choosing ONE self-care practice that I can do daily to ensure that, despite all the time I put into work, helping others & building my business, I am ALWAYS making time to take care of myself, too - body, mind & spirit.

While exercise and eating healthy are still important for maintaining a healthy body, self care goes WAY beyond the surface - and there are SO many little ways that you can show your body, mind & spirit some love on a daily basis. So, take good CARE of yourself. Do something that makes your heart happy. Nourish yourself from the inside out. Because remember: You can't pour from an empty cup.

Here are a few of my favourite self-care practices for a healthy body, mind & spirit:

  • Getting a Massage
  • Foam Rolling
  • Yoga/Stretching
  • Exercising
