"…I have spent a lot of time this past year learning about myself and healing and learning about becoming independent and really reflecting on trauma from my childhood and the ways in which my home environment were not the healthiest. And I've learned that it's really an everyday thing to heal yourself and to grow and to become the best version of yourself.…"

"…Some things I do whenever I'm feeling down on myself is to take myself out on a date, whether it be just like going out for a cup of coffee, maybe going thrifting maybe going out on a hike. I always feel better when I'm outside and breathing fresh air because I know when you're just inside, you just are alone with your thoughts and you just kind of like fall into a hole of sadness.…"

"…Hi Gabby thank you so much for your response. Yeah I definitely agree that I like being outside when I'm feeling down. It just makes me feel fresh and I will definitely check out those podcasts. I'm like trying to get into the podcast more. So thank you so much much for the recommendation.…"

"…So I really love this because I myself have had to learn self care and putting myself in a situation and putting myself first and my own mental mental health because a lot of things can be overwhelming and I love to take yourself out for a date and something I am going to start doing or have done is if I order something like if something's on sale, I will just pay the $2 extra or the one dollars extra to have a gift wrapped and send a gift to myself even though I know I'm buying it for me because I need shoes or I need clothes to actually even have a personalized gift sent to me.…"

"…Hey, Angela, thank you so much for your response and your feedback. I so appreciate you also contributing in this conversation. I know it can be super, like, vulnerable. And I really appreciate all that you shared. I totally agree. And I think it's a process that takes a long time and it's kind of ongoing. So I definitely think that it's about, like, habits that we change rather than like a decision that we make overnight.…"

"…And it took a while for myself to be independent and look forward for things in life because it was very hard for me. I am honest with you. Daily walks going just outside to get some air and just sit down and just literally be staring at nothingness, honestly, or just the sunset because I live close to the beach. I would just go there. I still go or I go for a quick walk around my school campus during the night time or anytime that I feel comfortable though.…"

"…Because for me, remembering to drink enough water and eat healthy food and eat enough is something that I really struggled with. And so it's been a priority for me. So, yeah, I practice a lot of self care through eating enough and on eating healthy foods and letting myself have a little bit of treats here and there and making sure to chug as much water as I can during the day. And it Jas really made a huge difference for me.…"

"…And that doesn't mean that every single step of something I'm doing or every habit or healthy choice is always going to feel good, but I want to be present for it. So to give you an example, a habit that has really helped me come back to myself, take care of myself, and love myself is a regular running and yoga practice, and sometimes both of those practices are really uncomfortable. Sometimes I don't want to show up for them.…"

"…Go to the bathroom, meditate, walk outside, breathe the fresh air, drink your coffee, do something meditative, read, write three or four pages. There's all these kinds of different ways, but just don't resist any phone activity for the first 30 minutes to an hour of your day. That simple thing. And see if you can also bring that also.…"

"…And if I implemented more habits or more practices like that, it'd definitely be so beneficial. I know that so many people have had so much success with just kind of taking time to just be with themselves and appreciate themselves. And that's something that I'm definitely working on.…"

"…And I think that if me and most of the people in my generation would put their phone down a little bit and ground themselves a little bit more, it would be so helpful to kind of work on living with ourselves and being happy with ourselves and content with just who we are, rather than being so attached to the notifications and always having to know everything and participate in everything. And I feel like it kind of puts this pressure on us to be always ready.…"

"…Not looking at my phone. First thing, that is tough. I make my coffee, and then I immediately look at my phone, and then I do what I have to do to get ready. But I like that idea. Would love to take a moment in the morning to do active meditation by just being in my body and being in the present activity. So I'm going to try that because I think that's a really good, like, active meditation.…"
