Top 3 Tips for Practicing Self-Care At Home

With anxiety, depression, and mental health concerns becoming more and more prevalent, it’s vital that we find real, effective ways to practice meaningful self-care. As Diane von Furstenberg once said, “the most important relationship you have in life is the one you have with yourself,” and we hope these tips will help you feel more grounded and healthy in your everyday life no matter what life brings.

Tip 1: Adjust Your Social Media Habits

Have you ever stopped to notice how you feel after scrolling aimlessly on social media? For some, seeing the world’s highlight reel is a motivator, for others it’s emotionally draining and can feel like a cruel instigator of comparison. This month, do yourself a favor and unfollow any accounts that don’t bring you joy. Curated and filtered feeds are beautiful, but if it comes with the price of feeling negatively about your own life, click unfollow.

Also, you can try deleting social media apps off your homepage. They’ll still be on your phone, it will just take a few extra steps to open the apps. This will curb that compulsive habit of easily checking them every few minutes. 

Tip 2: Do One of These Each Day

  • Get outside for 5 minutes before starting your day
  • Stretch for 15 minutes
  • Drink something soothing, like your favorite tea or a turmeric latte.
  • Call or text a loved one to remind them they’re special
  • Watch a show or movie you love to unwind
  • Cook healthy, nourishing meals
  • Write down 3 things you’re grateful for
  • Put your phone on airplane mode
  • Buy yourself flowers

Tip 3: Move Your Body

Feeling better about yourself (and your body) can be as simple as getting in a 30-minute sweat sesh a day. In fact, studies show being consistently active for 6 months or more is highly effective in boosting self-confidence. The boost in confidence doesn’t come from physical change, but rather the emotional shift that happens when you allow yourself to de-stress and focus on your wellbeing. Go for a walk, take a bike ride, or dance in your living room—whatever feels right for you!
