Finding time to pour into yourself can be challenging, so here are 4 self-care tips for extra busy people.
You know how it goes. When you wake up and your day is filled with work and commitments with your family and friends, sometimes there’s not much time left to catch your breath, let alone make time for your mental, emotional, and physical health. If you’re struggling with finding the time to take care of yourself, check out these four tips to add some quality self-care habits to your everyday routine:
Set a morning routine you love
It's a blessing to wake up in the morning, but it doesn't always feel great. Starting your day the right way is a perfect way to make sure your mental and physical health is in good shape.
What this morning looks like is different for all of us. It could be a healthy breakfast, an exercise routine, prayer, meditation, or something else. The point here is to find what works best for you and stick to it every day. The more you stick to this routine. The more it would become a habit and taking care of yourself first will become second nature.
For me, a good morning routine is one where I don't feel rushed -- and that includes getting dressed for the day. Having a variety of statement jewelry pieces at my fingertips make every morning feel like brand new opportunity to play around with colors and textures.

Schedule some time off
Life can get monotonous if you’re not careful, and it can feel like you’re doing the same thing over and over just to wake up and do it over again.
Make sure you don’t get lost in the chaos by scheduling some time off. It might be an afternoon away from your normal routine, or something more extravagant like a weekend away or vacation. Whatever you choose, taking a break will allow you to relax and rejuvenate.
Get your sleep
It can be easy to prioritize other commitments over your sleep, but the importance of sleep shouldn’t be ignored. Getting good quality sleep allows your body to heal and re-energize, which helps you to perform in all areas of your life.
It can also be hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle without proper sleep as we tend to make bad diet choices and avoid exercise when we are sleep-deprived. Sleep is critical for physical and mental health, which is why it should be made a priority regardless of how busy you are.
Be realistic with your goals
Manage your mental health by setting realistic goals. There’s no point in committing to something that is unachievable or will put so much pressure on you that you feel like a failure. Spend some time considering your aspirations and make goals that are challenging, but possible for you to reach.
You should also set realistic goals when it comes to your self-care commitments. Add things to your routine that will work long-term with your lifestyle.
With limited hours in the day, it can feel nearly impossible to make time for self-care. These tips should help you incorporate self-care into your schedule so that you can live life to the fullest.
