Put a Pen to Paper
"Journaling is a great self-care tool. Write about your day, the way you feel, and your plans for the future," Dr. Jones said. "Even if you only journal for 10 minutes a day, that's 10 minutes you are giving yourself. You may find that it is a simple and effective way for assessing and improving your life." Some people also find coloring to be relaxing, so try that if you'd rather shut your brain off for a few minutes.
