Another ignorant post shows up on your Facebook feed. Our country’s political climate continues to change. The news is littered with depressing stories, and all this while trying to stay sane juggling the demands of work and family life.

What’s a girl to do to escape the noise?

Relax, unwind and get right with these 5 self-care survival tips to help keep you physically (and mentally) ready for whatever adversities come your way:

1. Walk it out
They say you are the closest to earth once you put your foot to the ground. So get to steppin’ girlfriend! Oh, the wonders of what a 10-minute walk can do for you.

Not only will you clear your head, but you’ll get plenty of sun and vitamin D in the process. Walking also helps boost endorphins that make you feel good, less stressed and less worried about what’s going on in the world. Next time you’re feeling the pangs of stress overload, head for the door and take a brisk walk.

2. Pamper Yourself
Sometimes, counting to 10 just doesn’t do the trick. Instead, reserve an afternoon just for you to relax, de-stress and get pampered.

  • Step 1 – Wash your hair with Pantene Pro-V Gold Series Moisture Boost Shampoo. This shampoo provides superior cleansing and moisturization for relaxed and natural hair, leaving it feeling soft, silky and shiny!
  • Step 2 – Seal your locks with Pantene Pro-V Gold Series Repairing Mask. We all know that when our hair isn’t looking or feeling right, it can bring us down, adding more unnecessary stress to our lives. This water-activated mask is the gold standard for conditioning dry, damaged hair. It helps restore hair’s health and strength, while providing manageability, softness, and tangle-free hair.
  • Step 3 – After you’ve gotten your hair right, make sure your face is on point, too. Bring the spa into your home with Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System. Its 2-speed rotating facial cleansing brush thoroughly cleanses as it gently exfoliates

3. Meditate
If you don’t have time to pamper yourself when tension strikes, try meditation. It’s so easy, and you can do it anywhere! By meditating five to 10 minutes a day, you can clear away anything weighing heavily on your mind, gain new perspective and reduce negative emotions. Simply close your eyes, go to your happy place, and release your inner, “ahhh!

4. Sweat it out, then sleep it off
Many environmental and social factors – like excessive noise, deadlines, uncomfortable living spaces, financial woes, and bad weather – can negatively affect our sleep. Our thoughts on these occurrences can diminish our well-being and sleep patterns.

So how can you block out the noise? Try exercising! One intense hour spent at the gym has been proven to help you rest better at night. Nerves too much to relax? Go pour yourself a nice cup of tea! Hot tea helps calm your nerves, soothe your soul and bring on the Zzz’s.

5. Power off your devices
At the end of the day, sometimes you just need to go off the grid – unplug and recharge. By stepping away from your technology – even just for 30 minutes a day – you can organize your thoughts, release any built-up tension and clear your mind. It forces you to concentrate on “the here and now.”
