Self-Care Tips

The more you incorporate stress-reduction techniques into your life, the more fun you will have. Get started today for the best results.

Vacations as Self-Care

Vacations can also improve our mental health by reducing depression and anxiety. Vacations do not have to be long. In fact, research shows that even a short vacation can reduce stress. Additionally, the destination does not have to be an extravagant location. It could simply be a “stay-cation” or time away from stressful tasks. It can be tempting to plan vacations packed with experiences where you rush from location to location, but this can backfire. When you try to do too much, you come back from a vacation more stressed out than when you left, and you might feel like you need a vacation to recover from your vacation.

I like to use them as a preventative measure whenever I anticipate something difficult coming. They are a great way to mitigate stress and stay on top of things.
