You’re probably feeling like you’re being pulled in every possible direction right now, and can barely take care of your basic needs, let alone relax.
But in times of stress and uncertainty, it’s important not to neglect yourself. Remember, you can’t fill from an empty glass. The better you take care of your own needs, the better equipped you’ll be to support your kids and everyone else in your household. At Juice & Glow we are passionate about health and wellbeing. Healthy body and mind!
Are you looking after YOU?
With your previous outlets for personal time gone or changed significantly, it’s essential that you make time for yourself. Here at J&G we understand that now during COVID, more than ever, the challenges we all face day to day with work, family and home pressures leaves us exhausted, mentally and physically. Our exclusive online Exercise Programme, Healthy Eating plan and Mindfulness & Sleep Guide work together to help make it easy for you to self-care. Don’t you think you are worth looking after?
Are you overeating, drinking too much and not exercising? The lack of structure at the moment can make it easy to fall into coping mechanisms that can easily turn into bad habits. Added stress and uncertainty can also make it difficult to sleep at night. Try to prioritize your wellbeing as much as possible. This means getting your 5 a day in your diet, regular exercise and sticking to a regular sleep schedule.
Don’t set yourself up to fail.
Be realistic about what you can achieve. Do the best you can but try to keep some perspective. There’s no guide to COVID, and everyone is taking it day by day. Try not to fall into the comparison trap, either. Each family has its own set of concerns and priorities. Our popular 2 Week Wellbeing Challenge is a great and easy way to take that first step back to you.
Make time to laugh.
There’s certainly a lot of fear and heartbreak in the world right now, but there are also still chances to share a laugh and enjoy some ‘together’ time. Try to create opportunities for fun with your family like making easy, healthy family snacks for all to enjoy making and eating. Build a pillow fort in the living room, tell stories or look at fun family photos.
