We know our community is filled with kind-hearted individuals doing all they can to help the causes they care about, they enjoy giving their time and effort to help out those around them, but are they doing enough for number one?
Everyone knows taking care of yourself is important, but as our work days get longer and spare time seems out of reach, are we really doing all we can to ensure we are looking after ourselves?
Here at everydayhero we have put together some of the best wellbeing articles we have found this month to help you look after your inner happiness.
1. Rise and shine! 7 things you need to do before you start today.
Mornings can be tough for everyone, especially if you stayed up watching the next episode of MasterChef.

Learn how to take on your day and win every day with these simple tips.
2. Being human, have we forgotten how?
It is all too easy in this busy, technology driven day and age to ignore one another and forget one of the most integral parts of being a human – empathy. You may think that there is nothing you can do and that your fate is sealed, but recent research would say you’re wrong.

3. Would you be able to spot a health hoax?
It is impossible to be on the internet today without being confronted with the next new health craze that will ‘100% cure you of (insert illness) by making this one small change’. Of course we all want to improve our health but with so many of these wellness trends around how can you tell the difference between a legitimate claim and just another dodgy ‘miracle cure’ designed to make you fail
Cut through the hype with these 5 simple tips to help keep you safe from a ‘health hoax’.
4. Are we damaging ourselves by living too fast?
Our lives are richer and more fulfilled when we do more, right? Technology has made it even easier to cram in activities by making sure we don’t miss a second, but is all this convenience at a detriment to our health? Our attitude towards how we live our life could in fact be doing more harm than good and the key to change might be as simple as just slowing down.
Take a look at these 6 changes you could make to lead a simpler life, and reinvent yourself today.
5. Do we really know what a ‘day off’ feels like anymore?
We are all well aware of ‘Monday Blues’, you arrive in the office ready for another week and you ask yourself, what happened to my weekend?
Sound familiar? Weekends are meant to be good for us but packing too much in can throw your well-being out of balance. It begs the question, do our weekends still count as ‘weekends’, or are they just another day we spend jam-packing every last minute to get things done? It may be more harmful than you think.
Become a weekend warrior and reclaim your days off! After all, you deserve them.
If all this well being and self care has made you feel you’re up for a new challenge, why not take a look at all the different ways you can give back and make a difference to the cause you care most about with everydayhero.
