Self-Care Sunday? How about self-care any day! Why limit it to just Sunday? Self-care is so important and with spring break coming up, now is a better time than ever to do some self-care.

Here are my top 5 self-care activities:

1. Working out and going for a walk. One of my favorite things to do to take care of my mind and body is being active. I enjoy going out for walks, it helps me clear my head, and I get to enjoy the fresh air. Working out is one of my favorite things to do; I like to use Blogilates videos, or do my own mix of different exercises.

    2. Face masks and doing my nails. I really like doing face masks as a way to unwind from a crazy day or stressful week. My favorite mask is the Beautycounter Charcoal Mask that uses only safe ingredients and avoids over 2,800 questionable ingredients. I have always liked doing my nails and when I found Colorstreet, real nail polish that comes in strips that’s easy to apply, I was immediately hooked, and it quickly became one of my favorite self care activities because it doesn’t take a lot of time and its fun.

    3. Listening to music and reading books. Listening to music can be very relaxing, and it has been connected to having both physical and mental benefits. An article written by John Hopkins Medicine states “Research has shown that listening to music can reduce anxiety, blood pressure, and pain as well as improve sleep quality, mood, mental alertness, and memory”. Reading books is one of the other ways I practice self care. Not only is it good for the brain, but after a long day I feel like it can reduce stress immensely.

    4. Watching movies and TV shows. Something else I like to do when I am having some self-care time is watching a show or movie. When it’s been a crazy or stressful school week, I like to take some time to do something that’s not academic related, like catching up on a show or re-watching a movie.

    5. Taking a break from social media. I think that social media has its benefits and can be very fun, but I think its important to take a break from it every once in a while, even if it’s only for a few hours.

    Prioritizing self-care is super important and can be done in a variety of ways. It is good not only for your mental health but physical health as well.
