Being a busy person doesn't mean that you have to neglect your health. It’s so important to look after your body and mind so you can avoid the common pitfalls of being too stressed. If you know that you want to live a good life and be in great shape, then you really need to start taking better care of yourself and looking after your body and here’s why.

Why Do You Need to Look After Yourself Better?

Taking care of yourself is beneficial in many ways. You can improve your health, personal well being, and self-care. Going to the gym regularly and doing a bit of meditation can help you sleep better at night as well as reduce depression symptoms.

Taking care of yourself is not always easy, but it will make your life a lot easier. You should start by working on your health and nutrition habits in order to make sure that your health is optimum.

How to Create a Personalized Self-Care Routine

Everyone wants to create a self-care routine, but it can be difficult to determine what works for you. Self-care routines should be based on what is most effective for you and your needs. There is no one size fits all approach when it comes to self-care, so make sure that your personalized routine is customized for YOU!

Creating a routine will give you the time and space to take care of your mental and physical needs. You can make sure that you are not overworking yourself and neglecting your needs. Think about whether you need more rest time or to have a bath. Maybe you need pampering treatments or to go for long walks. Really work out what makes you feel rested and healthy and work it into a weekly or monthly routine.

How To Work Out Better & Look After Your Physical Health

You should exercise at least 3 times a week for 30 minutes to get the best results. You can do cardio, weights, or a mix of both. You can work out on your own, or hire a personal trainer to help you with your workouts. Try out the push pull leg workout for maximum results, or think about trying yoga or something new.

The whole idea here is that you’re doing what you can to look after your physical health. So think about what you need to do to put your body first and make sure that you’re in good shape and healthy.

How to Manage Your Mental Health Better

With the increased levels of stress and mental health issues such as depression and anxiety, it is more important than ever for people to take care of their mental health. There are many ways in which you can manage your mental health better. You'll find that getting enough sleep, regular exercise, spending time with friends and family, and escaping from negative thoughts will help you to feel better in the long run. Also talking to a therapist could be what helps you the most.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
