For national Stress Awareness Month 2020, self-care may be more of a priority than ever. Since most of us are spending more time at home than usual, it’s the perfect excuse to take good care of your mental, physical, and skin health! Here are some ideas for a fabulous daily skincare routine at home, as well as tips for healthy ways to practice self-care in quarantine while we find our “new normal.”

If you’re missing your spa days with the girls, plan a virtual self-care day with your best friends and family members and enjoy self-care together from a distance. Any of our face masks would work wonderfully to give your skin a glow before you launch your next FaceTime call or Zoom meeting!

Self-Care Tips for Mental and Physical Health

Our mental and physical health are strongly correlated, so it’s crucial to be kind to yourself. Thankfully, working out at home is even more convenient now that many gyms and studios are offering virtual workout programs so you can stay healthy without going in public. Since exercising regularly is proven to relieve stress and improve your mood, Stress Awareness Month is the perfect time to get moving.

Also, since we are all feeling a little more uneasy these days, scheduling a mental health check-in can help you remember to practice mindfulness. Here are a few self-care tips for mental health to help you feel more centered and balanced:

  • Meditate
  • Play with a pet
  • Focus on your breath
  • Practice gratitude
  • Try a virtual yoga class – there are plenty of options on YouTube, and some local Nashville yoga studios are regularly uploading new videos!
