Here, we’ve outlined some unexpected self-care rituals to take up now and forever. Your body, mind and spirit will thank you. ♡

Feeling exhausted? You may just be sleep deprived. Whether it’s getting the recommended eight hours of sleep every night, or power napping after a long day at work, adding a bit more snooze time to your weekly routine is guaranteed to boost your mood, kickstart your energy levels and keep your skin looking glowy and well rested.

Avoid Stressful Triggers

This includes toxic friends, uncomfortable situations, and anything else in your life that causes you to feel anxious and out of control.

Be Social

Alone time is necessary, but too much alone time could be detrimental to your well being. Especially when social distancing. If you’re feeling down, call up a friend, family member or coworker and make a plan, whether it’s as simple as a group video chat or movie night at home with your bestie. You’ll be glad you did.

Get Outside

Take a walk, ride your bike, or play fetch with your dog. A daily dose of Vitamin D is the key to a happy, healthy life.
