Revive Yourself With These 10 Self-Care Actions

Illustrated by Paola Delucca.
Life can put us in a seemingly never-ending state of panic: commuting to and from work, squeezing in social engagements, and somehow finding time to pick up groceries in between it all. It’s surprising we’re even able to get by on the days we forget to grab a cup of coffee.
That’s why self-care is so important — taking time out of each day, even if it's just 30 minutes, to distance ourselves from the chaos and focus on our mental, physical, and emotional health. Enter: our commitment to imparting 10 self-care practices into our daily lives. Along the way, we'll treat ourselves in many forms, from organizing our lives in a Bullet Journal to paying it forward at the coffee shop. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Inspired by Brita’s “The Filtered Life” campaign, which is all about small steps people can make to filter out the bad and get to the good in life, here are 10 self-care actions to take for a better tomorrow, starting today. Click through, and get ready to Zen out.
