  • [People share their self-care routines.]

  • I need self-care because I can get overwhelmed pretty easily.

  • I developed a self-care routine because I have depression.

  • Earlier this year my grandfather passed away somewhat quickly and tragically.

  • I've struggled with anxiety my whole life.

  • I deal with clinical depression.

  • When I read about a bunch of awful crap that happens, it just gets me in a really, really bad mood.

  • If I don't just set aside time for, "Hey, I gotta take care of myself," I just destroy myself as a human being.

  • [What is one of your ways of self-care?]

  • My favorite type of self-care is yoga.

  • When you're mentally stressed, it also affects your body physically, so it's really important to release that tension because it will also release your mental tension.

  • My form of self-care is my journal.

  • My thoughts and feelings will drive me insane if I don't get them out in some way, so I write them down.

  • Going to the gym helps me stay sane.

  • It allows me to turn off my thoughts for an hour.

  • I find if I've had a shitty day at work, or just a shitty day in general, and I go to the gym I often feel better afterward.

  • Meditation is one of my forms of self-care.

  • It's just so nice to be able to take a minute to just chill.

  • To be someone with anxiety and say that you can get back in control within 10 minutes is so wonderful.

  • My form of self-care is playing video games.

  • When you play a video game, you're focusing on one thing and it's just winning and beating the level.

  • And it sounds dumb, but having those small accomplishments, it just makes you feel a little bit better about yourself.

  • One of my biggest forms of self-care is art and drawing and illustrating, and really anything in the arts.

  • Just to be able to put down on pen and paper, or paint, untainted by anyone else's opinions.

  • It's really interesting because I typically create more when I'm sad or frustrated or angry.

  • One of my self-care routines is reading, especially poems, especially something that can just get me out of my world.

  • If I'm reading something that's about somewhere far away, it just removes me from my immediate situation and let me think about somebody or something else.

  • [What's your advice to other people about self-care?]

  • Finding the right self-care routine is not something that's instantaneous.

  • It takes like. a lot of trial and error.

  • It's good to find things that allow you to distract yourself.

  • Keeping my illness from taking over my life requires a daily effort.

  • Just take that time to do something for yourself.
