Why is self love important?
It’s easy to fall victim to the cycle of ‘work, eat and sleep’, with an underlying belief that we must be productive at all times. However, this simply isn’t true. By taking some time out to engage in self-care, you can relieve the pressures of everyday life, even for a moment.
Burning the candle at both ends can result in literal burnout, depression, anxiety and a whole host of negative implications. But engaging in self-care meticulously can have many proven benefits, including relief from symptoms of anxiety and depression, along with improving energy, happiness and much more. It can also help us to stay in tune with our higher selves and even allow us to understand the meaning of our lives.
Goodcare practice: How to implement self-care more often
Self-care isn’t always splashing out on expensive spas, massages and pilates. Sometimes it’s as simple as making your favourite cocktail, going window shopping or picking up your favourite takeaway.
Guided meditation: The perfect goodcare practice
Meditation is a practice that involves paying attention to the present moment and practising self-reflection in a completely non-judgemental way. This practice is important, as regularly meditating can aid in reducing stress, improving focus, and can increase feelings of well-being and happiness. This is ultimately known as mindfulness.
Ensuring mindfulness is a part of your everyday routine can help individuals to become more aware of their thoughts and feelings, and learn how to respond to them in a healthier way. Furthermore, meditation has been found to have many potential physical health benefits like blood pressure for example. Therefore, meditation and mindfulness are powerful tools to promote overall health and well-being – The perfect self care hobby to pick up in 2023.

CBD & Self care
CBD may be the perfect thing to introduce to your self care box this season, as many studies have found that CBD may have the potential to help improve mood in multiple ways. On the one hand, CBD benefits us by interacting with serotonin receptors, which may contribute to feelings of well-being and make us feel more relaxed. On the other hand, CBD can inhibit sympathetic transmission by activating certain cannabinoid receptors.
In other words, CBD effects can temporarily turn off our “fight or flight” response, which
is responsible for producing high levels of adrenaline and cortisol (the stress hormones), and instead activates our parasympathetic response, which allows us to relax, easing any stress and anxiety. Hence, CBD can offer potential calming effects, which is the perfect way to begin your self care routine each night.
