Schedule more self-care in the new year


By: Heather McMechan Contributing Writer

Self-care is so important. It’s been something I’ve been working on since October. I know we have our good days and bad days. It’s truly constant homework to make sure we take care of ourselves.

January is always a good time to make those goals for yourself. It’s time to start your self-care routine and get that calendar out right now and put these reminders in your phone. Here are a few things we know we should truly do for ourselves. And today is the day to start.

Make sleep part of your self-care routine.

It’s so important to get sleep. Dr. Shivani Gupta, from Fusionary Formulas, has created a Deep Sleep formula to help you wake up recharged, alert, and ready to take on the day. If you find yourself unable to sleep or stay asleep throughout the night, this plant-based all-natural formula utilizes clinically proven ingredients such as magnesium and melatonin to optimize deep REM sleep. You’ll wake up refreshed without any drowsiness. Isn’t it time to enjoy the best sleep of your life? Go to

Exercise daily as part of your self-care routine.

If you’re not up for joining a gym or having the pressure of a class, what about a walk to the beach. Put the baby in the stroller. Park downtown and head over the bridge for some deep breathing and salty beach breeze. Isn’t this why we live in South Florida?
