Making Time for Yourself

Everyone, even adults get stressed in their lives. Maybe there’s a lot going on at a job, maybe finals are coming up, or there’s something else going on at home. During these times of high stress it’s good to think about self-care. Self-care is when you take time to do something for yourself that you enjoy doing and that can make you feel better afterwards. There are some basic things you can do that will help with stress such as making sure you get enough sleep, exercising, and eating healthy.

Taking that time for yourself to unwind and destress is important not just for your mental health but also for your physical health too.  Self-care doesn’t have to cost money either. Here are some ideas for self-care that don’t cost a penny:

  • Playing a video game that you love
  • Journaling
  • Drawing or other art activity
  • Taking a walk or doing something else outside
  • Listening to music
  • Reading a book
  • Bubble bath

Find something you enjoy and spend some time to take care of yourself! Here at YO we have many different activities & clubs you can try out. During Spring Break you can come to YO for our girls’ night and make a unicorn sugar scrub.
