5 Summer Self-Care Tips

Get inspired, centered, and refreshed this summer with our top self-care tips…

🪣 Create a summer bucket list

Grab a sheet of paper and take 10 minutes to brainstorm activities that energize you. Going to an amusement park? Taking a pottery class? Let your inner child run wild! Once the timer hits, schedule the activity that excites you the most in your calendar.

🕺🏻 Dance it out

According to a recent study from the North American Menopause Society, a three-times-weekly dance regimen can improve cholesterol levels, fitness, and self-image in postmenopausal women. So, consider this your prescription to bust a move.

🧹 Clean out your (social media) closet

We all know the benefits of keeping a tidy home, but what about a tidy social media feed? The next time that 3am insomnia hits, take a moment to Marie Kondo your social media, and unfollow the accounts that no longer spark joy…

🤳🏽 Reach out to an old friend

Something about summer makes us feel nostalgic for the simplicity of childhood friendships. Take an afternoon to reach out to a friend you’ve been meaning to connect with. Hey, it’s good for your hormonal health.

🧘🏾‍♀️ Breathe in…and breathe out

Cultivating a meditation practice can feel like a daunting task. But even taking 1-2 minutes of silence can relieve stress and can even help with your hot flashes. Interested in guided meditation? Try one of Elektra’s favorite tools, Insight Timer, which has thousands of guided meditations that you can sort by your needs (anxiety, sleep, etc). Remember: it’s not a quick fix. Be patient with yourself and trust that, over time, you’ll begin seeing results.
