Ready to improve your life big time? Check out these simple KetWell tips to feel better from our clinical team and staff at Ketamine Wellness Centers.
Women are natural caregivers. Sometimes by the end of the day, we have run out of time and we have forgotten to care for ourselves. Set the alarm on your phone and when it goes off, spend 15 to 30 minutes doing something just for you. No one drinks from a dry well, so fill up your wellness well too and everyone (including you) will benefit!

Get a Good Night’s Sleep
Do your best to get a good night’s sleep! This can not only affect your mood and overall stress levels, but your physical health too. Insomnia, restless leg syndrome and sleep apnea are all conditions that can affect your overall sleep. Fluctuating hormone levels throughout the month adds to this stress. Not to mention the changes your body goes through during perimenopause and menopause. Hot flashes, night sweats and needing to use the bathroom during the night further disrupt your sleep.

Laugh to Ease Stress
Laugh! It not only eases stress and lowers blood pressure, it may also boost your immune system! If you laugh a lot, when you get older your wrinkles will be in all the right places.

As women, we get so busy fulfilling our various roles as an employee, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and friend that we often forget to take care of ourselves. Self-care is very important so remember to make time to do something that’s just for you. For example, visit one of your favorite places, treat yourself to a day of pampering, attend a yoga or meditation class, go for a walk, read a book or look into other pastimes that bring you peace, joy and relaxation.

Eat Colorful Food
Foods with bright, rich colors are more than just nice to look at. They’re also packed with flavonoids and carotenoids, powerful compounds that bind the damaging free radicals in your body, lowering inflammation.

Put Yourself First
Women are often busy taking care of everyone else in their lives and often put themselves last. As women, remember to take care of you. At least weekly, go for a walk, get a massage, get your nails done, meditate, or go see a movie. Do something that resets your mind and well being. You’ll feel more energized and ready to keep being Wonder Woman you are!

Make Self-Care a Vitamin
Self care needs to be a vitamin and not an antibiotic. Follow your heart. Do what feeds your soul. Positive experiences create positive neuropeptides in the body along with endorphins and oxytocin. Negative experiences create negative emotions and negative neuropeptides.

Adopt a Positive Body Image
Remind yourself that “true beauty” is not simply skin-deep.

Take Charge of Your Health
Take charge of your own health and don’t be afraid. The human body can do remarkable things, so remember to stay educated and open to new research because science and medicine are always changing. In order to improve our health mentally and physically, we need to be mindful of our bodies; know when to ask for help; and lastly implement new findings into our daily routines, so that we can improve ourselves and those around us to live happier, healthier, longer lives.

Take a Trip
Clear your schedule and pack your bags periodically. In 2016, researchers found evidence that hanging out with friends can increase production of oxytocin, the feel good cuddle hormone that our bodies make when we’re happy. Science has shown that oxytocin can make people more trusting, more generous, and friendlier, all the things you look for in friends.
