ICYMI: Why taking care of yourself should be your top resolution of 2018

We’re into the second week of 2018, and some of us are struggling to maintain our resolutions. It’s easy to say that we’ll eat better, or exercise more, or be kind to others. Putting all of this into practice can be, to put it lightly, tiring. If you are a caregiver for your aging parent, or a disabled dependent, you may be putting your own needs aside to focus on others. While it’s important to temper optimism with practical or frugal thinking, we know that being in a constant state of worry or difficulty can result in depression and anxiety. Being selfish about your own health is one way to make 2018 better for yourself and the people you love. Tips for approaching situations with a positive attitude There are so many things we can do for ourselves to help our mental well-being. Here are some of the ways our team has resolved to put some positivity into our lives. It’s time to shake off feeling guilty for not having time for everything. Be aware of stressors like not having enough time to accomplish your to-do list, or trying to cram too much into one day.

It’s so tempting to indulge in tasty treats, especially when it means you don’t have to plan or prep your meals. Eating good food can really affect how your brain processes emotions and your overall well-being. Colourful, fresh food is as tasty as it is pleasant to look at! We love keeping busy, and following through...
