We Could All Learn From These People's Self-Care Tips

Far from indulgence.

Self-care is a practice just about everyone could benefit from. It takes plenty of forms, but the focus is always the same: you. Some people use it to cope with mental illness, while other see it as a way to just keep themselves feeling balanced.

People were asked to share how they practice self-care, and their responses varied widely.

Some people recommended journaling...

...while others go for yoga...

...or work out at the gym.

Regardless of what your approach is, finding something that helps you relieve stress, and focus on yourself, is crucial to getting through life, whether or not you're going through a rough period. Just remember, self-care is an act of survival, not a luxury or mark of laziness.
