New Year, New... Self Care!
2021 called - it wants you to bring self care back! As you head into the new year, it's the perfect time to evaluate your health and wellness needs. At Fringe & Skin, we are committed to helping our clients feel their best, which is why we've compiled a nice list of ways you can improve your self care regimen this year.
Get Enough Zzz's
There are SO many reasons why sleep is vital to good health and well-being. For starters, getting enough quality sleep can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. Sleep can make you more productive during the day, as you'll be less sluggish. If you're having trouble falling asleep, consider finding some ways to destress - like listening to calming music before bed. Finally, routine is very important. Try to head to bed around the same time every night.
Take a Tech Break
Being connected online ALL THE TIME can be extremely exhausting and even stressful. Consider setting the smartphone or other device down and stepping back for a breather whenever possible. You'll notice that you are more productive, less distracted and more mindful. You may even notice an improvement in your relationships and increased self-worth. Don't worry, the emails, notifications, and updates will still be there when you get back from your detox.
Drink Enough Water
Is anyone else thirsty?! Just talking about the benefits of water makes us want to head straight for the H2O! Not only does water regulate body temperature, improve blood oxygen circulation, and protect tissues and joints, but it also aids in digestion, weight loss, fighting off illness, boosting energy, improving mood and so much more. It's safe to say that water should be your new sidekick all day long in 2021.
Have you heard the saying "It's OK to Say No?" Well, if you haven't, it's time to get more familiar with it this year. Listen carefully: it is not your job to please others all the time. Bowing out of an activity because you need rest - or simply just don't feel like going - is not a bad thing. At all.
Used as an alternative form of exercise to keep the mind and body healthy and happy, yoga and meditation is a great way to practice self care this year. Did you know that practicing yoga improves balance, endurance, flexibility, and strength? On the other hand, meditation helps keep the mind sharp, relieves stress and anxiety, and can strengthen your immune system. Curious about giving it a try? You're in luck! We are excited to announce that Happy Soul Yoga classes are back in session this year! To join, ???
It's true - creativity actually improves your health! Not only does it increase happiness, but it also reduces dementia, improves mental health, boosts the immune system and can even make you smarter. It's settled! Time to pull out the art supplies, friends.
We're going to say this loud and clear: Self Care Isn't Selfish. And sometimes, self care means treating yourself to a massage, facial or even a shopping spree. No matter how you choose to practice self care, all that matters is that you are allowing yourself to unwind and feel good. In order to be the very best version of ourselves, we must take care of our mind and body first. Side note: If you're looking for an amazing facial, we know just the one! Our Firm Skin Treatment is the perfect first-time facial or chemical exfoliation! This advanced treatment utilizes plant stem cell technology to leave your complexion smooth, softened and revitalized. Basically, this facial is the epitome of self care.
