Self care is a big trend right now, but I'm hoping it is not just that. Let's keep taking care ourselves mentally and physically. It's okay not to feel okay all the time.

That's what self care is all about...
- Headspace: breath in, breath out.
With hundreds of mindfulness techniques to help us achieve the balance we've desperatly been craving, Headspace guides us through hundreds of guided meditation. You can choose between a 2 minutes long or 30 minutes long meditations. No need to worry about not having enough time.
I personally use it to center myself in the middle of a stressful day... let's be honest, any day at this point.

This app focuses on working out which is a very important part of a healthy self care routine.
You can book any training: yoga, pilates, cardio, dance, meditation you name it!
Super convinient if you travel a lot, have little time or just want to get out of your gym routine.
You choose the length of your workout (no one will judge... if you're home alone ha!), and you'll not only get the benefits of endorphins, but also a great sense of accomplishment by putting time aside to take care of you.
I love trying new things and this app is filled with different types of trainings.
Cost: $13 per month, 2 weeks free trial
