A lot of us have to be reminded to put our own well-being first and take care of ourselves. Luckily, there are small activities we can easily incorporate into our day-to-day lives. In this post, I’m sharing 10 things you can do to benefit both your physical and mental well-being. You don’t have to start doing all 10 at once—adding just one activity to your self-care routine can help!
Prioritizing yourself may go against what you’re used to hearing about how hard you need to work. However, the more you ignore the signs of possible burnout and other issues, the more damage your lifestyle will do long term.
More often than not, I see my friends and peers (especially my fellow SCAD writing grads) in the same boat: having to take on a job because, right now, it’s the only way to eat and pay the bills. Too often at the expense of mental health and well-being. The job hunt never really ends and a career as we might have imagined it rarely seems to exist.
