This is your life. You are responsible for it. You only get one go, so you owe it to yourself to make it a good one.
Here we go -
Upgrade your social media feeds
Unfollow any body-shaming, depression or anxiety-inducing accounts that are clogging up your social media feeds. Do a social media cleanse and look for accounts that inspire you. Our minds are sponges, be careful what you feed them.
Schedule unplugged hours.
Focus on being present, unplug from the digital world and enjoy the day. Learning new hobbies, and not comparing yourself to others can work wonders on turning your focus around.. Consider leaving your phone untouched in your room for the morning, or alternatively, you can unplug from your social media during the weekends
Easier said than done especially at times of stress, but 7- 8 hours of sleep is optimal for feeling your best. It improves your memory and your capacity for strategic thinking. Sleep deprivation never makes for good decision-making. It also happens to boost your immune system which you will need if feeling stressed.

Exercise floods our bodies with feel-good hormones that motivate us. That's why exercising first thing in the morning is a great way to start the day. Doing this also pumps blood to the brain improving our intellectual performance, enabling us to process information faster and improve reactions.
Drinking water has so many benefits including cell generation, improving circulation, and it helps balance our moods and emotions. My top tip is to drink a glass of water as soon as you wake up, before your coffee and after 8 hours of sleep as it supports you mentally and physically setting you up for the day.
Create a healthy self-care routine.
Whatever your preferred flavour - meditation, affirmations, yoga, journaling, gratitude or all of the above; self care routines help to look after your mind. And if you have never tried them now is your chance. Making time to step out of your day and centre yourself has a phenomenal effect on your wellbeing.

Get out and enjoy the sunshine.
Vitamin D has so many health benefits, not only does it help our development of calcium for healthy bones and joints but it also helps you get a better night's sleep and increases the feel-good hormone serotonin. So, get out and enjoy the sunshine this month, it will pay dividends on your mental and physical wellbeing.
Getting out of your comfort zone.
Write a list of things you want to do or be, and push yourself to create those experiences – no matter how uncomfortable you may feel about them. Connect, learn, and experience life to the full – don’t hold yourself back with limiting beliefs which keep you in your comfort zone.
