Stress tends to crop up a lot in the tech industry. With constant deadlines and being glued to the desk, it’s no wonder high-tech workers tend to be so stressed-out! Stress can even take a toll on our sleeping habits, affecting our health and well-being.
For me, self-care is essential for a healthy heart. Self-care is about taking care of yourself so that you can be the best and healthiest person that you can be. Building self-care habits into my weekly routine is important for my physical and mental health. I try to find slow moments in my busy week to dedicate myself to managing stress. One of my favorite ways is by reading, getting out into nature, and continuing to learn about the world around me. Pursuing hobbies like playing music and photography also help me slow down and relax.
A healthy lifestyle means a healthy heart. Sometimes, it’s hard to find the time and energy to take good care of yourself, but if you make the effort, you’ll feel better, look better, move better, and live longer too!
