Love Your Self-Care Club: How You Do Self-Care

Here’s the thing about self-care: It’s about yourself. How, when, and why you take me-time is entirely up to you because you know yourself and what you need best. This series showcases the myriad ways to reflect upon and take care of yourself. May these routines inspire you to truly do you.

“I’ve been extremely active my whole life, and I find that when I get my blood flowing and my heart pumping first thing in the morning, it gives me a clear head for the rest of the day. If I have that one hour first thing in the morning, then I’m ready to handle anything else that may happen that day. Being able to connect with my body and my breath is almost like therapy for me. It really sets the tone for the day. I walk out of a workout feeling confident, strong, and happy, and I try to carry that feeling with me all day.”

“When I feel out of whack, when I’ve taken on too much or literally just had enough with humans, a night of crazy-fancy beauty products is just what the doctor ordered. I’m actually really good every morning and every night about doing a full-fledged routine, but sometimes, when I feel like I need it, I’ll go the extra mile. Note: I’m usually wearing my ultra-plush Four Seasons robe while all this is happening.”

“Reading, writing, burning a candle, doing a million-step skincare routine, or taking a bath—it doesn’t matter, it’s all important…Living in a place like Manhattan, self-care makes me feel all that more ready to face the city every day and say, ‘I am here, I am important, so get used to it.’ It’s empowering and calming all at the same time, something that is very similar to the energy of New York City. Without it, I would drown a little, never giving myself a moment to feel my own breath. Also, who doesn’t love to feel a little pampered? That never hurts.”
