Happy (early) New Year! Now that we’re in the last few days of December — the final countdown — we are totally amped here at AVIE! We are so excited to start a new year with you and help you make 2020 your best year yet!
To help you start off the new year running, here are a few of our favorite tips and tricks for feeling your amazing best this year:
1. Make your bed.
No, we’re not being silly! Researchers have actually studied the effects of bed making on our emotional health. It turns out that the simple act of making your bed helps your day be more productive, boosts your mood and self-esteem, and lowers your stress. And there’s no need to get militant about it, just a little straightening will do the trick. Don’t forget how nice it will feel to return home after a long, busy day to a lovely looking bed. Ahhh…
2. Get plenty of sleep.
The research on sleep has been in for centuries it seems. There’s no way around it: sleep is the panacea for everything, from helping heal the common cold to staving off depression and even signs of aging. There’s nothing a good night’s sleep can’t do!
3. Tidy your work desk.
Studies have shown that keeping your work space orderly helps to improve productivity and enhance your ability to focus while also lowering stress and inspiring a sense of serenity.
4. Practice self-care every day.
You’re no stranger to self-care because you’re reading this blog, so you know the benefits of treating yourself to medical spa treatments. But we want to remind you that joy is also in the little things that make up your regular day, like cups of tea or laughing with a colleague. Self-care is being kind to yourself, which helps to keep your stress in check and your mood stable.
5. Don’t forget to smile.
When you smile, even when you aren’t “feeling it,” you are triggering the release of endorphins, which are feel-good chemicals in your brain. So smiling is actually a way to trick your brain into being happier! Best of all, this trick is absolutely free and at your disposal any time of day or night!
