These are changes that we may recognize in our appearance and sometimes there are internal changes that we may not always see, but we may feel.
We are living in a fast-paced environment where people have multiple jobs, hobbies, working on their education or perhaps growing families that all can be time consuming.
When we do get that chance to sit back for a minute, we always tend to be glued to our phones. Statistics have proven that a person will on average check their phone 52 times a day!
While we think that this is being productive, we also sacrifice on things that may benefit us the most… Time for ourselves.
It is Important to take time for yourself
At times it is inevitable that our lives can get busy and taking care of ourselves can occasionally get pushed under the rug. People’s favorite line is “there’s just no time” and we are all guilty of using it. However, I think we can all agree… That there’s time if you make time.
Self-Care can be as simple as doing something to help you relax from a busy day. Enjoying your time can be playing your favorite sport, reading a book, going for a walk, or simply going to sleep early.
