Self-care is more than just a trend — it’s a lifestyle. Taking care of ourselves both mentally and physically isn’t selfish, but rather, it’s essential to living a happy, fulfilling life. That’s why we at beU are passionate about promoting the importance of self-care and providing you with quick and easy self-care ideas and resources that will help you make it a priority in your everyday life.
Just a few moments a day of self-love can have a positive impact. It’s so important to remember that we cannot pour from an empty cup. Self-care is about filling ourselves up, so we have the energy and motivation to tackle the challenges that life throws our way. In a survey of Americans, 64 percent said self-care enhanced their self-confidence, 67 percent said it increased their productivity, and 71 percent attributed self-care to a boost in happiness. So, why not see what it can do for you?
Wondering where and how to start? According to Everyday Health, there are a few different categories of self-care: emotional, physical and spiritual. An example of emotional self-care would be positive self-talk, while exercise or getting more sleep could address your physical well-being. Spiritual self-care would be doing something like going to church or meditating. Breaking it down by category can make it seem more simple. And no matter what, when you choose to prioritize self-care, you’re benefiting your physical, mental and emotional health.
So, whether you’re looking to make small changes to your daily routine (we’ve got ideas for that below!) or embark on a larger self-care journey, we’re here for it every step of the way. It doesn’t need to be a big commitment. It doesn’t need to cost a lot of money. Your self-care routine just requires you to set aside time and make a commitment. Join us in setting aside time every day for self-care and see how it can transform your life.

- PAMPERING: Treat yourself to a DIY spa day at home and pamper yourself with a face mask, or light some candles and draw a warm bath. The simple act of pampering can do wonders for your mental and emotional well-being!
- POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS: Self-love affirmations can help you focus on positive thoughts and boost your confidence. Start your day by saying (out loud or to yourself) positive affirmations, such as “I am worthy and deserving of love and happiness,” or “I am capable of achieving my goals.” You got this!
- MEDITATION & MINDFULNESS: Journaling or taking time to reflect on your thoughts and emotions can be incredibly therapeutic. This time alone can help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and what you need to be happy and healthy. Also, try to be mindful at meal-time. When you take a moment to savor your meals and enjoy the flavors and textures of each bite, it can help you feel more satisfied.
- EXERCISE: Regular exercise is a great way to improve your physical and mental health. But don’t feel like if you can’t spend 30 minutes a day working out, you shouldn’t do it at all. Whether it’s a full yoga class or just downward dog in your living room, find an activity that you enjoy and make it a part of your routine … even if it’s just for 5 minutes!
These are five quick and easy self-care ideas, but there are SO MANY MORE you could implement into your daily routine. Try one of these or come up with your own, and start incorporating self-care into your day. It can help you disconnect from the chaos of daily life and reconnect with your inner self. And, let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to feel happier, healthier and more relaxed?
