Self-Care Tips for Getting Better Faster!

woman lying on a sofa; text; self-care tips for getting better faster We all get sick, and you will get better much faster by taking care of yourself and resting! Here are some self-care tips for getting better faster!

Ask for help from your spouse and child if they are old enough.

Have some easy meals in the cabinet or freezer if you’re not up to cooking (healthy canned soup, frozen veggies, and quick rice are great).
Eliminate what you can from your workload. Many things such as housework can wait! But self-care doesn’t!

As far as going to your job, it’s much better to call in for a day or two than to try to do too much and end up being sick for longer. You’ll be a lot more productive if you can stay home and get well! If that’s not an option, take care of your most essential tasks and then go home.

I also use aromatherapy oils in the diffuser by my bed. I feel like that helps to support my immune system.
Epson salt baths are perfect for sore muscles and achy muscles when you’re sick.

Let your kids watch movies or do whatever it takes to get your rest.

Don’t Let Your Self-Care Slide.

When I do get sick, I find that I have let some of my self-care slide, such as being overly busy, skipping green smoothies, not getting enough sleep, and not getting a regular massage. We all know the importance and benefits of massage on our bodies and mind. And there are plenty of reasons why we should book a massage session today.

It is very tempting to try to push through and carry on with your regular schedule, even when you’re sick.  We all want to do it all and accomplish our goals, but by resting and taking care of yourself, you’ll be back at it faster, healthier, and stronger! Always remember that self-care is a must!

And don’t forget to reschedule your massage session. Call us or book now to secure your appointment.
