While many of these harmful habits have become part of the landscape and we are not even aware that we have fallen into them. I invite you to identify them and eradicate them from your daily life.

How to promote emotional self-care?

Practicing emotional self-care not only generates well-being in your life, but it also has positive effects on your environment and your relationships with others. Today, I invite you to integrate the following habits into your daily life to cultivate them. Don’t judge your emotions and express them.

Identify the people in your immediate environment who contribute to your life and strengthen your relationship with those special people. Don’t get stuck complaining. When challenging situations come into your life, avoid complaining and focus on finding solutions. Accept yourself. Learn to recognize your strengths and weaknesses and accept them as part of you. Respect and be empathetic. We are all different, we should not pretend to agree with everyone. Learn to respect differences. Have a healthy lifestyle. Having a healthy diet, practicing physical activity regularly, having good rest habits, and avoiding the consumption of psychoactive substances are essential to achieving and maintaining physical and mental well-being. Plan your goals. Establish short and long-term objectives and define the actions you will have to take to achieve them. No matter what stage of your life you are in, it is always a good time to adopt habits that contribute positively to your health and well-being. Today, I invite you to choose yourself and make yourself your priority.
