There are the obvious answers; exercise and eat well, so let's talk about those.
Exercise does not have to be a grueling and painful workout. Take some walks! Do some 10 minute YouTube exercise videos. Just move! When I started out last fall trying to increase my movement, I just walked part way around the block. That was more than I had been doing and it led to what I'm doing now. When I started the #walk20in20 back in January, I had to break that down to at least two different times a day and take brief 5-10 minute walks to get my 20 minutes in. I'm now up to taking a 30 minute walk each morning plus shorter walks throughout the day. Don't get caught up in worrying about heart rates and all that. JUST MOVE YOUR BODY!!!
Eating well. You hear a lot of "it's more expensive to eat healthy" and I agree that it appears that way on the surface. But what I've found is that healthy foods tend to fill me up more which decrease how much I want to eat. So it tends to even out. Yes, fresh fruits and veggies are expensive, but watch for what's in season and buy that-it tastes better and is usually cheaper. Also, buy frozen when you can't find good sales on fresh. It's picked at the height of ripeness and sometimes tastes better than what you can get in the produce aisle (it's usually picked before it's ready and then ripens off the vine as it's being shipped).
Then there are the other things we can do for ourselves to take care of ourselves. What yours is may be different than what works for me and that's fine. Here are some of mine:
Massage (it's a rarity but I do enjoy when I'm able to get one)
Reading a good book
Spending a few minutes sitting in front of the fan and cooling off after a workout
Listening to podcasts and audio books
