As we settle into the second half of 2020, it is important to reflect on all the things we have done for ourselves so far this year. At the beginning of the year, many of us made lofty goals for our New Years’ Resolutions and by the time we got to June, they had fallen off of our radar. Now is the perfect time to take a moment and investigate what we want to do for ourselves for the rest of the year. Today on the Vibrant Health blog, we’re diving into the investments every woman should make this year and how they will impact her quality of life.
Upgrade Your Self-care
What better time is there than now to explore the different areas of your self-care routine? This can include investing in some tangible items such as treating yourself to an upgraded skincare routine with products that have good-for-your-skin ingredients. You may also look into investing in an experience-based upgrade within the self-care space. These activities can work on the health of both your mind and body, like meditation or yoga. Spending time curating a self-care routine at home can help boost many facets of your life.
Enhance Your Wellness
Your wellness encompasses many things; your physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. While self-care can help facilitate a better relationship between you and your wellness, it is important to take time to focus on your wellness specifically and head-on. As we get closer to the colder months, finding a way to stay physically active will help with your overall wellness. Investing in an exercise unit that you can use from the comfort of your own home will help you keep consistent with your activity levels regardless of the temperature outside.
Further Your Education
In a year of uncertainty, this is the perfect time to explore things you have always been interested in learning about. Online learning is becoming a more and more accessible means of education, so why not take advantage of it! Whether you have always wanted to explore the world of screenwriting or the inside of a professional kitchen, classes taught by the greats can give you access to unprecedented knowledge to help you explore new worlds. Spending time following your passions and educating yourself on new ventures can open the doors to new successes for you!
Make Some Personal Developments
Maybe you already have a skill you’ve been exploring in the first half of the year and you are ready to do something with it! Investing in your own side hustle can help you explore your passions! Consider creating your own Etsy shop or Instagram page to sell your work. Putting your work out there for the world to admire and also want to buy is a great way to boost your self-esteem and drive. Once you hit the ground running, a great tool to have at your disposal is a reliable postage system to keep you out of the clogged offices of the post office when you have orders that need to be shipped out!
Spruce Up Your Wardrobe
Sometimes you have to think: out with the old, in with the new! Opening up your closet and purging anything that you haven’t worn in…months or even… years can be an extremely cathartic experience. Your taste and style evolve just like anything else, so finding ways to shop for yourself without worrying about the expiration date of your taste is important. Invest in timeless pieces that can help you feel like whatever outfit you assemble will have you looking your best. Foundational pieces like easy-to-wear shapewear can help create that baseline comfort to any outfit while flattering your natural silhouette.
Give Your Home a Little Love
Spending more time at home means your space should be a place you enjoy spending time. But how often do we have a list of projects to spruce up the house that fall to the wayside for lack of time, energy, or drive? Consider going through one room at a time; figure out which room you spend the most time in–the room that should be your safe haven–and figure out how to make it your perfect zen zone. This could mean doing something simple like painting the walls a calming color or buying new indoor plants to bring some literal life into the room.
