Taking care of yourself is not only great for you, but also for the rest of the people in your life.
Dr. Ian Smith notes that practicing self-care rituals can help you take your power back and alleviate some of your anxiety, frustrations, and stress. For our host, one of his favorite self-care rituals is making time to relax in his massage chair. He practices this self-care ritual in a dark room with no distractions.
Some other ways self-care rituals that nearly anyone can do for free include:
- Take an early morning walk - try also making a soothing or inspiring playlist to enjoy while you are moving
- Clear out your inbox or go through your piled-up paper mail -- getting on top of your outstanding mail will bring you a sense of relief
