When you feel stressed out or overwhelmed, it's a clear sign that you need to take the time to do something for yourself that allows your mind, body, and spirit to completely let go of the things weighing you down.

Relax your mind with meditation
Without a doubt, meditation is one of the best and most important self-care rituals. It has been scientifically proven to be very effective for your brain and mental health because it basically trains your brain to process situations better and more mindfully.
However, if you find it difficult to turn off your thoughts and start with a small dose of meditation, then use ready-made meditation tools such as Mala Beads and Relax Music. These small adjustments can help you go deeper into the meditative state where you can truly reap the benefits of mindful breathing. So pick up your Mala and find a comfortable place to sit down. It's a ritual of self-care that you don't want to skip.

Practice yoga to release tension in your body
You've heard it many times -- exercising every day is the key to feeling good! But with so many exercise options available and a stress-induced lack of motivation, getting off the couch seems impossible. However, let yoga be your motivation -- and the exercise of your choice because it really does wonders for your mind, body, and spirit.
There are many different types of yoga to try, so you are sure to find one that will completely fascinate you.

A walk in the open air can lift the mood
Getting outside for at least 15 minutes a day is vital for your mental health, as your brain needs fresh air and all the good elements of the earth to function properly. Now that you're outdoors, take some time to do some extra physical activity.
So take a daily walk around the block or the local park. You'll be amazed at what it can do to your brain and legs! Who knew that just walking a few more steps could make your legs look so toned?

Sing and dance away the stress
It's time to shake off the pressure and get into the rhythm. Singing and dancing is a great way to release all the stress from your mind, body, and spirit. Plus, when you're singing and dancing, you can't be unhappy.

Read and restore your imagination
Lie down on the couch with a comfy soft blanket and flip through a magazine or book you've always wanted to read.
By holding a physical book, you can physically and mentally connect the words on the pages. Sometimes, going back to those simpler days, it feels good to read a physical book that you need to turn the pages.

Keep a journal. Write down any thoughts that are bothering you
Journaling has been proven time and time again to be a great stress reliever. It allows you to express yourself fully without fear of being judged or rejected, or worse, to accept opinions that you didn't ask for at all.
However, if you're not a writer, you might be tempted to skip this ritual of self-care. After all, you might be thinking, "What the hell am I going to write about?" Well, you'll be happy to know that there are many diaries out there that can lead you into a topic. Some will ask you to make a list of the things that are most important to you, or write down your favorite childhood memories, while others will simply ask questions that you can answer and then reflect on the future.

To discover who you really are
Technology, and all the social media that comes with it, has completely robbed us of our sense of happiness. Everyone has a great time online and you can't help comparing yourself to them. Taking care of yourself starts with you and your mindset. If you practice healthy thinking, others will follow. So, go pray and rebalance your chakras with our new collection of Mala Beads, or learn how to Meditate with Mala Beads. Perform this self-care ritual for at least eight weeks and you are sure to experience a positive transformation in your mind, body, and spirit.
