How to Be Your Best Self in 60 Seconds

It’s not all about exercising and getting a proper sleep, y’know?

By: Jodi Taylor

We’re sure that you’ve heard the phrase “work on being the best version of yourself” so many times by now (it is the MO of 2018), that we’re feeling your eye rolls through our screens. But there’s no denying that when you are doing things for yourself, helping those around you, and treating your body like the temple that it is, you feel a whole lot better. Your energy is high, you’re inspired, and your motivation is through the roof. This is not a coincidence, guys. Aside from getting the right amount of sleep, eating proper meals, and exercising regularly, there are a few other not-so-obvious things you can do in order to be the best version of yourself. Here at Cov HQ we are constantly reminding ourselves of the below four points.

 

Do One Good Deed a Day

Aside from the fact that doing a good deed will give you a warm, fuzzy feeling inside (and who doesn’t love that?), it’s also going to change the day for those around you. Think of it as a snowball effect—they’ll likely be inclined to continue that kindness. Always remember that something that may seem so small to you could make a world of difference to somebody else.

 

Chill Out

Of course it’s important to care for those around you, but don’t forget about yourself! Dedicate at least one night a week to something that makes YOU feel good. Run a bath, enjoy a glass of wine, do a face mask, or just lounge on the couch in your robe, bingeing on Netflix. That also means taking care of your body on the other days—eat your fruits and veggies, take your daily supplements, and use skin-care products that are packed with great ingredients, like, say, True Botanicals Vitamin C Booster. Add powdered vitamin C to your daily serum; it can make a world of difference.

 

Never Settle

This applies to your job, friends, significant other—heck, even what you’re eating for lunch. No matter the area of your life, you have a pretty clear idea of what you are looking for, right? So just go for it. Youll get more out of the things that make you truly happy than those that are just easy to get.

 

Be a Better Listener

There is comfort that comes when your friends and family truly listen to you, so why wouldnt you want to extend that comfort to someone else? It will forge a stronger, deeper relationship that in the end will be much more fulfilling. Like the adage goes: Shut up and listen.
