Exercise is not only critical to improving your self-care, but it’s also beneficial for your overall health in general when paired with healthy eating habits!  Exercising is actually one of my favorite things to do now, and if I don’t start my day off with a good workout, I know my day is bound to not be the best it possibly can be.

Research shows that some of the most minimal amounts of exercise has the most benefits for your overall well-being.  Here are some examples of exercises you can do to as self-care techniques:

  • 20 minutes of walking a day
  • 20 minutes of aerobic exercise
  • 30-45 minutes of weight lifting 3 times a week
  • 20-30 minutes of yoga daily
  • 20 minutes of HIIT daily

These things and others are just small steps towards ways to enhance your daily self-care regimen.  This week, try incorporating something you enjoy doing into your self-care routine as it relates to fitness, as an effort to improve your overall health and well being!
