Use Less Plastic
In a busy world we get everything to go which usually involves a lot of plastic. We constantly use plastic cutlerly, cups, and straws but this plastic often ends up in the wild and in our oceans, killing many animals. Switching to reusable products is simple, cost effective, and if everyone makes this change it will have such a great effect on the planet! Try swapping out your plastic waterbottle for a cool reusable one! Swell Waterbottle availiable at Well.ca
Cook More Often
You often hear the New Year's resolution "eat cleaner" but what does that mean? I often get food to go or order in. The problem is you don't know exactly what you are putting in your body. If you are trying to cut back on salt but are eating out a lot, it can become difficult to know what you are
actually eating. Meal prepping or taking time to cook a nice meal at home can help prevent you from over-doing portion sizes, salt, sugar, etc.
Keep a Journal
I have talked before about the importance about becoming self-aware. Journaling can really help you focus on your mental health, be grateful for the good
in your life, and set goals for the future. Writing down your day-to-day thoughts and feelings can also help you better understand yourself so you can give so much more back to the world.
Have a Good Skincare Routine
Incorporating a good skincare routine into your morning or night routine can be very beneficial for your well-being. Taking that time just for yourself can be a very calming part of your day. If you have kids or a busy schedule, setting aside time to do a facemask or a scrub will make you feel relaxed and refreshed. A hot soak in a bath with your favourite fragrant bomb, salts or oil is wonderfully restorative. Not only can taking this time to yourself be a boost to your mental health but it is also great for your skin. Don't be afraid to pamper yourself!
