Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether or not you’re celebrating the holiday, we feel like it’s a good reminder to take some time to show yourself some love. After all, we all deserve a bit of self-care, especially after making it through the last couple of years.

What is self-care? It’s all about making yourself the priority and doing what makes you happy. It’s not just about face masks and yoga (although they can definitely be a part of it!).

You can generally break down self-care practices into several key areas:

  • Emotional: Activities that help you connect, process, and reflect on your emotions.
  • Mental/Intellectual: Activities to help you keep a clear head, think about things in new ways and grow intellectually.
  • Physical: Practices to ensure your body is functioning at its best (think exercise, eating habits and getting enough rest).
  • Social: Nurturing relationships (and ending toxic ones) to maintain your wellbeing. This also involves setting boundaries.
  • Spiritual: Practices that nurture your soul – it doesn’t have to involve religion.
  • Professional: Setting boundaries and finding a work-life balance.
  • Financial: Creating a healthy relationship with money to reduce stress and anxiety.

Want to set aside time to be lazy and watch TV? That’s self-care! It’s whatever you need to find some peace and be happy in this chaotic world.

If you need some help to make yourself a priority, these self-care blogs are full of tips and advice.

1. Uncustomary

This vibrant blog is written by Mary England, aka “Uncustomary.” Her goal is to help readers find what makes them happy and develop habits to keep those feelings of “Merriment” consistent. In short, she’s all about having fun.

While Uncustomary loves color, joy, and fun, she’s not afraid to go deep in her posts and podcast episodes to talk about mental health, trauma and therapy. “I want to show you how amazing you are. I want to twirl you around and remind you that you’re gorgeous. I want to give you the tools so you can wake up every day with confidence and optimism. I want to make your life something you want to celebrate,” she says on the site.

Recommended reads: Using Your Expressive Writing To Move Forward In Life; How To Foster Respect In The Workplace; and What Is Merriment Making? (podcast).
