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.

Tidy and declutter your house

Check in with your older relatives
Read a chapter of the book you’ve been meaning to get to
