Coronavirus is a pandemic that has created crazy times and has even created a global mental health crisis. One thing that I have really attempted to focus on during the pandemic is putting more time into self-care, as we are having to spend more time alone in quarantine.
Self-care that is healthy and often preached about includes working out and meditation. However, self-indulgence can also be counted as self-care, such as eating ice cream and watching romantic comedies in sweatpants with a bun on.
Here are five other tips that are absolutely OK to enjoy and count as self-care, especially as we get through this pandemic because anything and everything is possible and we are all just trying to do our best in these trying times.
