20 Things I Do For My Self-Care Routine

Never underestimate the power of a self-care routine. Over the past year and a half, that has certainly become my motto. When it comes to self-care, the case can be made for literally any activity that makes you feel good, inspired, and refreshed. I get a lot of questions about self-care because I'm always posting about it on Instagram. As my one friend Jesi put it, I "have a different self-care tip like, every day."   What can I say, mental health and my general well-being are...
