The Unexpected Self-Care Activity Brie Larson Has Fallen in Love With
Larson's YouTube channel is so relatable, it's as if you're watching videos made by a close friend or your favorite vlogger, not an actress who stars in one of the most popular film franchises of all time. With stress levels at a high, Larson's channel offers a bit of reprieve. In the video mentioned prior where she put 39 different relaxation methods to the test, she tried everything from taking a long bath to playing music and jade rolling. Most of the methods she tried were your run-of-the-mill self-care activities, but there were a few unexpected activities that even she was surprised by.
"I tried watercolor, which I had never tried before," Larson said. "I'm competitive, so I was pretty sure I was going to find a way to make it a stressful experience, but it was really amazing." She discovered this new hobby on a particularly busy day when she had back-to-back phone calls and opted to take them outside while she painted instead of sitting indoors.
Most of all, what she's learned is that taking time for yourself doesn't require some grand gesture. "The thing for me now has been learning how to incorporate it, even into the small moments of my day."
