Self-care may sound and seem selfish, but the truth is you can’t fully help others if you’re not feeling your best.
Self-care doesn’t have to be some lavish thing either, it can be as simple as taking a walk, enjoying a quiet moment, or enjoying a hobby you love.
Here are some super simple self-care ideas that you can try out this year to keep yourself on track with your goals and feeling your best!
Unwind with essential oils.
Enjoying some soothing essential oils are a great way to unwind, relax, and restore energy. Try diffusing some of your favorite scents (use citrus scents for energy and lavender and peppermint for relaxation) or massage a few drops on your skin with a carrier oil.

Enjoy some guilt-free chocolate.
Chocolate makes everything better, right? If you’ve got a sweet tooth, treat your self to some dark chocolate (70% or higher is best) or try our delicious sugar-free non-glycemic chocolates.
Enjoying a small treat like chocolate now and then can help you keep bigger cravings under control. Plus, dark chocolate is a natural mood booster and contains antioxidants.
Make a healthy treat.
Chocolate not your thing? Why not try a new healthy recipe you’ve been wanting to try out? Taking time to cook a nice meal or treat for yourself can feel therapeutic and beats fast food any day of the week.

Spend a little extra time on your skin.
Nothing says self-care like pampering your skin.
Give your skin a little extra attention with a DIY facemask, bubble bath, or go all out and get a facial. For high-quality skincare at home, try our new +MEND Skincare line.
Take a walk.
Reset your mood and improve your energy with a walk outdoors. Even if it’s cold, bundling up and enjoying the fresh air can be super beneficial and cleansing. Walking boosts endorphins, improves mental clarity, and can help you with problem-solving.
If you need some extra help and encouragement getting out to walk, join the 10k Pledge and get rewarded for walking every day.
You don’t need to feel guilty when you take time to take care of yourself. Self-care is important for everyone so don’t forget to add some of these self-care ideas into your weekly routine. Check out our Facebook page for more health and wellness tips to #LiveBetter!
