5 Easy Ways To Add Self-Care To Your Day

It can make all the difference in the world.

Between work, household chores, kids, parents, exercise class and beyond, some days, it seems there’s hardly a moment in the day to breathe. But it can be easier: adding a moment for self-care and comfort can make a big difference in our daily lives.

Here are 5 simple ways to add self-care into even the busiest days:

1. Take an Intentional Breather — You might be surprised what 10 minutes spent in fresh air can do for you. Find a quiet spot where you can let the sun shine on your face and try to breathe in good thoughts and breathe out the bad ones. Taking a walk as an easy way to destress. Keep a pair of Easy Spirit slip-on sneakers under your desk to easily slip out for some vitamin D.

2. Get Enough Sleep — Sleep research is big news, so it’s probably no surprise to you that you need to get your zzzz’s. But did you know that if it takes you less than 5 minutes to fall asleep at night, it could be a sign that you’re sleep-deprived? An easy fix to get better quality sleep is adding more exercise in your day. So lace up your walking shoes at least once a day in the name of a better night’s sleep.

3. Listen to Your Body — The healthiest people all seem to have one thing in common: they’re in tune with their bodies. Be proactive about your health and see your doctor if you think something isn’t right. Having back, leg and foot pain? You don’t have to give up style to wear footwear that fits. Find a wider width, a more comfortable foot bed, or if you need more support, choose a shoe with orthopedic benefits.

4. Say “Namaste” — Yoga and meditation help bring you back to yourself, no matter what the day has in store for you. The quieting of the mind has endless benefits. Get yourself to yoga or meditation class in lightweight and comfortable Easy Spirit clogs you can slip on and slip off easily and quietly.

5. Get a Daily Dose of the Best Medicine — Laughter. The most important tip of all: get as much enjoyment out of life as possible every day. Without laughter and friends to laugh with, really, what’s the point? Whether you’re howling with the gals on your morning walk or racing to the mall for the second time today(!), grab a friend and get active together.
