Self-care doesn’t always mean taking a bubble bath with slices of cucumber on your eyes. An act of self-care can be as simple as washing your face or making your bed – basically anything that makes you feel good.
At become, we believe everyone should feel good about themselves in order to live confidently so let’s get started with these 5 easy things that you should do for yourself every day.
Wash your face
Start your day right by having an easy skincare routine. You will just need 2 products – a cleanser and moisturizer – and less than 5 minutes twice a day to care for your skin. Even when you’re tired after a long day out, taking a few minutes to wash your face after you brush your teeth and pop in your invisible braces will always pay off. Your future self will thank you.
We know it’s the cliche thing to say that breakfast is the most important meal but it really is! Whether it’s cooking a full breakfast meal or simply grabbing a cereal bar, it’s important to fuel your body to kickstart the day. Having breakfast will help your metabolism and increase your energy levels throughout the day.
Make your bed
It’s a simple act of the day but making your bed sets you up to have a productive day as it’s the first accomplishment of the day. Plus, it’s great to come home to a neat and tidy bed so you can hop in and sleep for the night! This habit is easy enough for anyone to just start immediately today.
We’re not saying you have to work out 5–6 times a week to take care of your body – but moving your body with a short jog or swim session is a good enough start to take care of your body. It doesn’t matter what exercise you do as long as you do something to move your body each day. Plus, exercising releases endorphins which are also known as the happy hormone. You will definitely feel better physically and mentally after a workout session!
Create a nighttime routine
Ahh it’s the end of the day and it’s time to wind down before bed. Have a mug of chamomile tea before bed, read a book or even have a nighttime face mask routine. Creating a mini pre-bedtime ritual signals to your body it’s time to unwind and go to sleep. If you have become invisible braces, take this time to properly clean them and don’t forget to pop them in before you sleep! You’ll wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day with a smile.
Taking care of your smile is also another act of self-care you can practice – and we want you to feel confident with your smile! Take our free smile assessment today and see if you qualify for become invisible braces.
