1. Consider an alternative to resolutions, fads, and diets. Instead, create a comprehensive self-care programme that evaluates your overall lifestyle. Write down a couple of positive statements under each category. This channels energy into reinforcing positive behaviour and assists with recognition of areas for future tweaking.
2. Get motivated. There are four barriers to taking care of yourself: unrealistic expectations, unreasonable social norms, family dynamics, and lack of skill development. Self-motivation is key to overcoming these challenges. The first step is to acknowledge that you’re worth it.
3. Reassess your fitness routine. Regular exercise, healthy nutrition, adequate sleep, and stress management are central to a good wellness plan.
