Ways To Invest In Yourself Every Day

There are ways to lift ourselves up every single day and practice self-love without breaking the bank. It’s essential to take that time to make sure we’re keeping our mental and physical health in peak performance. After all, when you look good, you feel good and vice versa. You may think you need to seek out expensive spa treatments or head to the closest luxury boutique to get a dose of retail therapy to accomplish these feelings. And while it’s always fun choosing the ideal jewelry piece to add to your collection or diminish wrinkles with some more Botox, there are more accessible and more affordable ways to invest in yourself every day. 

Get Outside 

The reality is, you’re in California! You can’t ask for a better climate and more beautiful scenery. So, get outside and take it all in! Breathe in the perfect air and feel the comfortable temperatures on your skin. Connect with all five senses when you’re out – how the environment is making you think. You’re investing in your mental health right then and there. 

Take Care Of Your Body 

Taking care of your body is one of the most important investments you’ll ever make. And the return is visible almost immediately and lasts a lifetime if you’re committed to it. First things first, make sure you’re nourishing your body with the foods you eat. Eat the rainbow, as they say! Make sure you’re eating foods in their most whole and purest form. Eating more plants alone will have immense and lasting health benefits. Avoid things that are full of over processed ingredients and sugars. 

Another way you can honor and invest in your body is by making sure you get regular physical exercise. The key to making it a normal thing is finding a type of exercise that you actually enjoy. So, whether that’s surfing, hiking, HIIT, yoga, pilates – it really doesn’t matter. You need to be moving your body and moving it on the regular. Not only does this make you feel great – it’s proven – it also makes you look great as well. While every body type is beautiful and human beings weren’t meant to all look the same (don’t fall for or chase a standard), you feel good – plain and simple when you look good. So invest in your body, and you’re already winning this game of life. 

Greet The Day, Everyday 

Sure, there are exceptions to this rule – if you’re suffering from the flu or going through some major life issues, you don’t have to adhere to it – but in general, you want to get out of bed every day and “Greet the day!” Start the day by making your bed; every day, you’ve already accomplished something before you’ve even had your coffee. Take the time to groom yourself and look your very best. Make sure you’re using products that work for your specific skin type or hair type. If you have grey hair, you need different products than people with curly hair types. You don’t have to do a full face of makeup if that’s not your thing – it’s not a lot of people’s – but you do want to get yourself to your version of “put together.” 

Live With Integrity 

When you’re living a life with integrity, you have confidence and security that those who aren’t living that way don’t. Especially when it comes to investing in your emotional well-being and mental health, if you live a life of integrity and try to do the right thing, you will always know you’ve done your best. Living this way leads to less stress, fewer feelings of failure and guilt. So many people these days suffer from depression or anxiety. If you’re giving life your best every day, you can hopefully avoid these feelings, leading to mental health struggles and illnesses. 

Investing in yourself is one of the most important things you can do in your lifetime. It also doesn’t need to be something that you overthink and view as unachievable. Be grateful for the things and people you already have in your life. Remember where you are today; you probably only dreamt of being two years ago. You got this!
