20 ways to practice self-care

I love being busy. I always make sure I have million things going on at once and though I really enjoy this kind of life it can still be quite stressful. Working too much even if it's all only fun stuff can still burn you out so it's important to remember to take care of your mental health.

I've come to realize over the past years that relaxing always the same way with the same activity is not that beneficial to me. Doing something so much that it becomes almost a routine takes a lot of the relaxing power out of that activity.

I've noticed that I feel most relaxed after doing something that I don't do everyday or week or even a month. Breaking that habit and doing something different every time to take care of my mental health has definitely been the way to go.

So instead of always relaxing by watching tv for example try to mix it up and try different kinds of relaxation methods to find the ones that work best for you.
