Did you know that August 21st is Internet Self-Care Day? Yes! It's a unique holiday created to observe and spotlight all the great ways the internet can help you with your self-care. Considering how much the world wide web is part of our daily lives, it makes sense to recognize how this transformative and highly used technology can help improve our lives and health, even if just for one day.
This holiday is important because it brings awareness of the significance of caring for oneself. It's a day that makes it OK to time out of your busy schedule to make sure the most important person in the world — that's you— is OK. For Neutin Gifted Rewards members, we make accessing thousands of online resources easy because our members are important to us. That's why Neutin's Gifted Rewards program gives you access to over 500,000 savings opportunities right in the palm of your hand. And to make things more convenient for you, we have a category dedicated to your online shopping needs, proving the internet does have your self-care in mind.
While the meaning of self-care seems self-explanatory, it is often misconstrued as self-absorbed when that's not the case. For example, the World Health Organization defines self-care as "the ability of individuals, families, and communities to promote health, prevent disease, maintain health, and to cope with illness and disability with or without the support of a healthcare provider."
Because having the mental and physical ability to care for yourself without dependency on medicine or a doctor is an accurate measure of health and wealth, encouraging the world to be self-sufficient in this way makes this day more than a holiday but a movement.
If you're interested in using Internet Self-Care Day as an opportunity to work on being a healthier version of YOU, here are five ways the internet and Neutin can help you.
Our emotional health is just as important as our physical health. We can better manage stress and emotions when we have healthy coping mechanisms. To do this takes courage. Considering going to therapy, journaling, or working on your mental well-being is possible when you're a Neutin Rewards member. Check out the Health and Beauty section to learn how your membership can help your mental health.
Getting active is an excellent boost to your emotional and physical health. Regular exercise and physical activity can improve a person's overall health and prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and more. Even getting a good night’s rest and maintain good nutrition is a great way to address your physical health. If you want to start a healthier physical routine or take a day to explore creative ways to be active, check out the Health and Beauty section and get started on your physical self-care plan.
We live in a fast-paced society. Everyone is always on the go, leaving little time for hobbies or extra-curricular activities. However, pleasurable pastimes bring joy to a person's day and life. The Home and Garden section has many great deals for those who love gardening, DIY projects, and much more. So get started on your favorite leisure activity, or discover a new one today with Neutin.
A strong support system is an invaluable resource in any person's life. When you have family and friends who love you unconditionally and are there for you in good times and bad, you're rich. With Neutin, you have access to many family-fun and memory-making opportunities in over 10,000 cities across the U.S. and Canada. Consider taking a social self-care day and be with the ones you love for dinner or have a coffee or tea break with one of our many restaurant deals.
