Take Time for Self-Care
Is it time to treat yourself? These apps are ready to help.
Whatever your relationship status, you’ve gotta love yourself. If you’re ready for a little you time, check out these apps to help you shed stress, treat yourself to something delicious, and learn to create your own happiness.
When was the last time you took a long, indulgent bubble bath? Or had an actual spa treatment? Or crossed a book off your want-to-read list? If you can’t remember, it’s time to schedule some time for yourself. Start by ordering bath bombs from Lush, scheduling an in-home massage with Soothe, and downloading an audiobook from Apple Books.
Who says dinner for one can’t be fancy? Pick a night and order all your favorite dishes with Postmates. For real New York bagels, Key lime pies, and other regional specialties, check out Goldbelly. And brighten up your table with a bouquet from 1800Flowers.
One key part of practicing self-love: taking time for reflection and creating healthy habits. While you’re soaking in the tub or savoring some sweets, listen to Shine’s inspirational (yet bite-size) talks on appreciating yourself, easing worry, and building resilience. Be sure to set up healthy-habit reminders with Aloe Bud, and log the ups and downs of your emotions with Moodnotes. Over time, you’ll be able to see how much you’ve grown—and hopefully schedule this kind of self-care more often.
