by | Wellness

Are you tired all the time, stressed, fail at having a good night’s sleep, and feel you have absolutely no time for yourself? Do you want to start living a healthier lifestyle and sleep healthier, but not sure where to begin?

Then you’re going to want to continue reading this post as I share with you five self-care tips that you can begin implementing into your life today.

Discover how they will improve your sleep, life, and help you live a healthier lifestyle.


1. Stick To A Morning Ritual


When your alarm goes off, don’t hit your snooze button. Instead get up, open your blinds and let in natural light from outside. Natural light boosts your immune system, wakes up your body’s natural rhythm, and will also help you sleep better at night. If it’s still dark outside, then turn on the lights to signal to your body it’s time to begin your day. 

Then grab your gratitude journal and write down five things you’re grateful for. Finding reasons to be grateful every day will create a positive mindset and you’ll begin to find yourself feeling more joyful and happy in your life.


2. Drink Warm Lemon Water Before Your Breakfast 



After sleeping for 6 – 8 hours you are dehydrated. Staying hydrated is a key ingredient when it comes to your own self-care and improving your life.

Drink warm lemon water first thing in the morning. It will help you hydrate while the lemon juice will help your body release any built-up toxins. 

Here’s a quick and easy recipe: Cut a lemon in half and squeeze the juice from one half into a 2-cup mug (keep the other half for the next day). Then pour warm water into the mug. Drink it and enjoy!


3. Schedule “Me Time” Every Day



Exercise decreases stress and brain fog, increases your brain’s ability to be more productive, leads to weight loss, burns off old lifeless energy and increases new revitalized energy for both your body and mind. It will definitely help you get restful sleep and have you wake up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle your to-do list. 

Being physically active is vital and life-changing. Get ready to experience heightened self-love, self-confidence, and self-worth.


4. Love Your Self-Reflection 



Every time you look in the mirror, don’t hesitate or shy away from looking at your reflection. Make sure to smile and give yourself a compliment. Loving your own reflection will raise your endorphins and help you increase your daily self-care routines.


5. Get 6 – 8 Hours Of Quality Sleep Every Day 



Your body needs sleep to naturally regenerate itself. By implementing this healthy sleep pattern, you’ll wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on your day. 

Healthy sleep means getting off all your digital devices one hour before you go to bed and removing them from your room.

Better yet, wear Swannies® Blue Light Blocking Glasses at least two hours before bed to ensure your body produces the natural sleep-inducing hormone – melatonin.

Because not only do digital screens expose your eye to blue light, your bedroom lights also compromise your sleep by emitting blue light at night.
