Simple Self Care Hacks For Stressful Times


It’s been an incredibly hard year for the world, but hopefully, we’ve been reminded what truly matters in life—family, friends, a roof over our head, and doing our best to enjoy the simple pleasures. To help ease your mind during this hectic time, we’re sharing 5 self-care tips to keep in your back pocket for when you’re feeling down. Learn our stress-reducing hacks below

Our Top Tips

MAKE A WEEKLY “FEEL-GOOD” PLAYLIST - You can add songs that calm you down, help you meditate, or force you to relax. Once your playlist is set, you can listen to it in the car, when you’re trying to clear your mind before bed, or anytime you are feeling stressed.


SOAK IN A BUBBLE BATH - If you don’t have a bath, a long, steamy shower does just the trick too. Allow yourself to unwind and clear your mind during the relaxing soak or rinse. See how to run the best bubble bath here 


UNPLUG FOR 10-15 MINS - During this time, focus on yourself and your surroundings. The emails and group text messages can wait. Giving yourself a moment of silence can help clear your mind and help destress. 


TAKE TWO MINUTES EACH DAY TO JOURNAL- Before you write this one off as “not for me,” consider easing into the idea by starting with writing down three things each day (or week!) that you’re grateful for. Journaling doesn’t mean you have to write a novel by any means. Keep it in a note on your phone or the old-school way and buy an actual journal. Not only will you feel relieved getting your thoughts and feeling out, but when you’re needing a pick-me-up, you can go back and read older notes and remind yourself that whatever you’re going through will pass and brighter days are ahead.


STRETCH IT OUT- Stretching improves posture, muscle tension, and your ability to relax. Take 5-10 minutes to move your body and elongate your figure. You can do this right when you wake up or at the end of the day between commercial breaks as you’re winding down during the evening.
