Self-Care During These Crazy Times

Making time for yourself is hard to do when you’re on a busy schedule, but being a college student and trying to make time for yourself is even harder. Then when you are on a budget it doesn’t allow you to be able to get the top or best-rated products.

The first step to self-care is making time for yourself. It doesn’t matter if you say you have no time, you will always have time for yourself, you will make it. Making time for yourself doesn’t mean that you have to create an entire spa day, four-course meal, and then end the day with wine and a movie. Making time for yourself could be you do a facemask or take a bath and go to bed early. You could take yourself out to lunch and regroup your thoughts. Honestly, you could literally just take a nap and that could be your self-care if that is what you need.

The main thing that college students tend to do as self-care are face masks, taking a bath, and just laying low on their own. Now adding on COVID-19 plus school plus just being human, making as much time for yourself as possible is very important. It is very easy to get way into your head and fall down the dark rabbit hole and then when you add on pressure and stress from the outside world, you have to put up a big fight to keep yourself up. Making those little changes to your routine and prioritizing yourself will help you balance your crazy busy life.
