10 Self-Care Strategies to Keep Calm and Reduce Stress

Written by Sofia Reddy, LCSW.

Recently, I declared a self-care day.

I woke up when my body felt rested, ate breakfast, saw my son off to pre-school, and headed to my yoga class. The instructor reminded me to focus and breathe. After a rejuvenating practice, I headed home for a leisurely lunch with my husband. Later that afternoon I enjoyed an hour massage and then treated myself to a nourishing vegetarian meal of soy tempeh with kale, red onion, beets and brown rice at a favorite local eatery. My body thanked me for treating it well. I completed my self-care day with a session of acupuncture.  After a full day of nurturing myself, my mind felt clear and focused. My mood was calmer. I now felt like I could tackle the week ahead of me.
