Journaling is another form of self-care that can help create space to analyze, process your thoughts and feelings.

Psychotherapist Rachel Wright, who focuses on sexual health, relationships, and mental health, recommends keeping a journal every morning, starting with a gratitude list.

4. Enjoy sex alone

Even if you don’t have a sexual partner, you can do it yourself. Focusing on sexual relations with yourself is important and enjoyable.

“Masturbate every day,” advises Wright.

5. Get out of the house

Studies show that spending time outside can be good for our mental health. Wright recommends going on a hike every week or setting aside a specific time for nature walks, whether it’s a picnic, a block walk, or a trip to the beach.
