Self-Care Corner: Facing the Fall


By Krisy Anderson, Owner, Beverly Hills Day Spa

Self-Care is more than what we commonly refer to it as. Self-care is the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being—emotionally, mentally, financially, physically, socially and spiritually. So, live intentionally!

Acknowledge the power you have in your mind. Practice journaling, meditation, reflection, saying “No.” Read or watch something funny. Listen to music. Color with crayons.

Start where you are — any amount of savings can make a difference! Budget (review bills), plan for the future, know your credit score. Set goals: Short-term, Medium-term, Long-term — and stick to them.

Use food as a tool for healing and energy, not comfort. Move your body. Exercise to keep your body healthy and strong. Sleep and allow your body to REST. Walk outdoors and enjoy nature.

Make a list of things you like to do that are only about YOU. Spend time reconnecting with friends and family. Follow through with the commitments you make to yourself. Turn off all electronics just for a while.

Connect with the power that is within you. Read uplifting text, pray, meditate, rest, have quiet time. Attend religious services to connect with others.

Self-Care is a priority and necessity–not a luxury. Take time to enjoy some self-care at Beverly Hills Day Spa!
