28 Wellness Gifts for Better Health and Self-Care
How you get well can be a simple gift for yourself or something as extravagant as that massage in the back yard or the hotel for which you can never afford to buy. It probably depends how important the gift is to you and how you spend your time in the day. What we do and how we choose to live determines the quality of our health or self-care. Self-care might be something as simple as enjoying a massage or a beautiful sunset at the beach or it can be about finding the time to invest in yourself or your health. Whatever the gift, it should be a message of confidence in you whether that is an investment in you or giving you the necessary time to take care of yourself.
I would like to think that there is a way to make healthy habits as simple as walking or making it more effortless to get to the gym or start a hobby that you find soothing and enjoyable. As long as that is the goal, the decision to begin or continue is not one about money, it is a choice in your own health.
It is important, however, to recognize the costs and costs to you in your health should be part of the equation. For example, spending more money doesn’t necessarily mean you will get better health but at least you will have spent money on something that is healthy for you. Likewise, taking the time to make healthy choices can mean you are paying more so you can gain from the health benefits that are made possible by the lifestyle choice rather than simply paying more for a healthy option.
The importance of self-care should not be underestimated. Every moment of your life, it is important to find an opportunity to care for yourself. If you find you don’t have the time to do this then I hope you understand your need for it. If not then maybe you need to remember that the value of your health depends on how you live and the choices you make.
