Different Ways To Practice Self-Care

Whether you are stressed out, sick, or just plain exhausted, self-care is something that is often overlooked. It’s self-care time, which basically means taking the time to do things that makes you feel better.

Some people may wonder what self-care entails and it can be different depending on the person. So try not to compare yourself with others as self-care time can be as simple as closing your eyes for five minutes or as complex as planning a trip across the country. Here are some ways to practice self-care!

Spiritual self-care

Try meditating, go on a walk-in nature, write down what you’re thankful for, take time alone at home to have candles lit up all around you, do some journaling about your feelings.

Mental self-care

This aspect of self-care may include having a spa day where you can pamper yourself to the fullest, cleaning out your whole house if it’s messy, or planning future goals and ambitions. Take time to do things that allow you to think clearly because who wants to be stressed out about life?

Social self-care

Take the day off of work (or school), invite over some friends to watch movies or hang out at someone else’s house or even just talk on the phone with one person for an hour.
