At Bergen Physical Medicine, we believe that your top priority should always be yourself. Often-ignored but totally necessary, self-care is any action or behavior that helps us avoid triggering health problems and benefits us by improving our mental and physical health. Since self-care is a very individual thing, there’s no set prescription for how or when to do it. However, we do suggest utilizing some or all of these tips to treat you to a little rest and relaxation.
- Indulge in a massage – set aside some time to experience the complete and total bliss of a massage. It soothes both the mind and muscles, improves sleep quality, and reduces stress.
- Unplug – these days it seems like we’re all glued to our phones, laptops, or even both at the same time. Taking a break from social media, email, blogging, and so on can help us recharge and gives our brain the downtime it needs to work at an optimal level.
- Get outside – Ditching the comfort of your home is a great way to improve mental and physical health.
- Acupuncture - Acupuncture is a centuries old system of medicine designed to bring balance to your body's systems. Don't worry; the needles don’t hurt.
