Gift Guide, Health & Wellness2 Min Read
Everyone defines health differently — and that’s a good thing! Your health and wellness goals are probably unlike your partner’s, or even your best friend’s. That’s because your body is also different from theirs, and you should honor its needs accordingly.
Maybe you hit every gym class while your partner is more into a Hot Girl Walk, or vice versa. Whatever your wellness goals, prioritizing them is a critical part of your sex life. Really! Investing in your health is important because it can help you feel more comfortable with your body — and we don’t just mean what it looks like, because every body is worth celebrating at every shape and size. Exercise and self-care can help boost your self-esteem and make you feel more in tune with yourself.
Experts believe that what matters most is creating a routine — an accessible practice you like doing, and want to keep turning back to. That can include everything from meditation, acupressure, aromatherapy, to even a quality sleep session. Books can also help you tap into your self-care, because they’ll stimulate your mind and exercise all that gray matter. Add these accessories to your routine and you’ll be well on your way to mental wellness.
