By Idrissa Thiam

We are already past half of the year in 2020!  With society’s rapid pace and the stress of the #COVID19 environment, it is far too easy to neglect your health. As a result, The Vegan Cosmetics Store is encouraging everyone to practice self-care for the rest of  2020.  Self-care is any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Although it's a simple concept in theory, it's something we very often overlook. Good self-care is key to improved mood , reduced anxiety and boosting your immunity . Three ways in which you can practice self-care this year is eating right, meditation, and just taking time to relax and pamper yourself.

Physical self-care includes how you're fueling your body, how much sleep you're getting, how much physical activity you are doing, Creating a healthy diet is a key factor in self-care. 

A poor diet can profoundly impact your immune system, mental health, and put you at risk for chronic disease. 

According to Scientific American (Jan 2019), Yoga has been scientifically proven to relax your body by lowering your metabolic rate and loosening muscle fibers.  Yoga and meditative techniques like deep breathing have also been proven to stimulate your parasympathethic nervous system—which promotes greater focus and feelings of connectedness. 

Aromatherapy with essential lavender oils may reduce symptoms of pain or osteoarthritis when directly massaged into the skin.  According to the Mayo Clinic, Essential oils also work to soothe nerve pathways in your limbic system—promoting calmness and relaxation. Engaging in a relaxing hot bubble bath has also been scientifically proven to reduce inflammation and increase nitric oxide production and overall energy levels.  If you would like to experience a papering facial which makes use of aromatherapy check out newly opened Vegan cosmetics Store, in Coral Springs.  They will also be offering many self-care events including health talks, Yoga classes and Makeover session.
