“Slow down, this ain’t the Mainland”, is a catchy phrase here in Hawaii, referring to the speed limit and slower pace of life in Hawaii. But slowing down is also a healthy approach to self-care.
Sometimes a busy schedule just gets in the way of taking care of yourself, but letting that happen can actually make things worse. Neglecting self-care can actually have a negative affect on your wellbeing by keeping you stuck in unhappy and unhealthy behaviors.
Taking time each day to nurture ourselves is an act of self-love, which also boosts oxytocin aka the “love hormone”. Look for activities that promote inner peace and calm, that allow you to unwind from stress and get in touch with your needs. Be creative with your self-care and don’t forget to have fun along the way!
