Whether or not you have a Valentine, when was the last time you actually took care of yourself? While it's a great thing that self-care is becoming an increasingly popular concept, the truth is that so many self-care practices we can do to boost our mental health and wellbeing like massages, facials, and solo travelling are not always affordable. Here are 10 ways you can feel instantly calm and happy without spending a penny.
Write an “It’s Done” list rather than a “To-Do List” of everything you’ve gotten done
Change your sheets and make your bed
Write in your journal
Put together playlists for different moods
Tidy and declutter your house
Watch the sunset and take it in (no electronics!)
Check in with your older relatives
Read a chapter of the book you’ve been meaning to get to
Make a list of 10 things you’re grateful for
Call a friend you haven’t spoke to in a while
