Write a letter.

85+ Self-Care Ideas to Improve Your Well-Being

This doesn’t have to be a letter you send out in the mail, but it should be one that helps you unburden yourself in some way.

Write to yourself, to God, to your future spouse, to your children or grandchildren, or to the universe. Just let yourself write things you’ll want someone to know about you, things you want to change about your life or things for which you want to be able to forgive yourself.

The goal here is to get the words out, and you don’t have to show the letter to anyone. You can even burn the letter after you’ve written it to symbolically offer the words as a prayer or as a sacrifice. Write it your way, and keep, deliver, or dispose of it your way.
