When was the last time you thought about treating yourself to the spa, a nice steak dinner, or something you have patiently waited to purchase? Most people struggle with taking good care of themselves. Especially those from the sandwich generation—taking care of their parents while taking care of their children. There just does not seem to be enough time to focus on you. National Life Group and the National Institute of Wellness disagree. Living well starts with you; so, why not start today!
Here are a few basic self-care tips to help you focus on YOU and your well-being, from the National Institute of Wellness.
- Take care of yourself. Eat healthy foods, get enough sleep, exercise regularly and avoid drugs and alcohol. Be sure to get your regular medical check-ups.
- See friends to build your sense of belonging. Consider joining a support group to make new friends.
- Do something you enjoy every day. That might mean dancing, watching a favorite TV show, working in the garden, painting or reading.
- Find ways to relax, like meditation, yoga, getting a massage, taking a bath or walking in the woods.
National Life Group also believes that a brighter future happens with better choices. The more meaningful choices offered by your retirement plan, the better off you and your employees could be during retirement. It’s time to review your retirement plan investments to make sure they are the solutions your employees need to retire with the money they need.
It’s time to upgrade the options in your retirement plan so that your employees are FIT—financially independent for tomorrow.
