As busy as we are these days, it can be really difficult to find time for self-care.
But it's absolutely essential to our physical, mental, and emotional well-being that we MAKE the time. If busy celebrities can do it, so can we! So here are 18 self-care practices from famous people that you might want to try:
During an interview with Forbes, the Friends star said, "My self-care is my morning routine. I don't pick up my phone 'til I'm finished walking my dogs, feeding the dogs, meditating, journaling, making my coffee. You know, just having a nice clear head, and then I'll go into the world, so to speak."
When asked about self-care during an interview with Harper's Bazaar, the Lemonade singer said, "In the past, I spent too much time on diets, with the misconception that self-care meant exercising and being overly conscious of my body. My health, the way I feel when I wake up in the morning, my peace of mind, the number of times I smile, what I’m feeding my mind and my body – those are the things that I’ve been focusing on."
In an interview with People, the "Lose You to Love Me" singer shared that a little snooze is her favorite form of self-care. "A nap is my best bet, not gonna lie. Taking a nap when I'm feeling a little low is nice because I feel like I can start over."

The Queer Eye star told Shape that they turn to yoga as a form of self-care. "My yoga practice is so important. And it's not necessarily just yoga – getting up and moving and getting sweaty is really important to my well-being. It has to happen. I can't get my bullshit deflector up unless I work out."
In O Magazine, the talk show host said, "I always give myself Sundays as a spiritual base of renewal – a day when I do absolutely nothing. I sit in my jammies or take a walk, and I allow myself time to BE – capital B-E – with myself. When I don't, I absolutely become stressed, irritable, anxiety-prone, and not the person I want to be in the world."
"Self-care has become super important to me lately," the Sour singer said in a video for Vogue. "Doing your makeup, or doing your skin care, or you’re taking a shower and taking care of your hair or whatever. You’re not on your phone, and you're by yourself, and you can kind of really recharge. That’s really important to me."
During an interview with Into the Gloss, the Harry Potter actor said, "I have a bath every single day of my life. And if I can have two or three – amazing. Nothing terrible is going to happen in the bath, so I always find time for that. I’ll take phone conversations in the bath, anything."
The tennis star told InStyle, "Self-care doesn't need to be complicated; I try to not overthink it. It's important to find ways to unwind. I like to practice meditation, even if it's just a few minutes each day, because it helps center me. Music is also a great tool, which is why I'm almost always wearing my headphones. I like to listen to songs that help put me in the right frame of mind."
When discussing self-care with Bustle, the model brought up affirmations. "It’s really weird to talk to yourself in the mirror; you have to just get over it. Something that I have done before, if I want to memorize something or get it into my soul, is record it in a voice memo, and I'll turn it on and listen to myself. We live in a generation where we’re constantly on our phones making TikTok, Insta Stories, whatever it is — you are talking to yourself in the camera. But if you can’t talk to yourself in the mirror and say I love you, there’s an issue."
During an interview with Shape, the pop star said that exercise, therapy, and meditation are her top three self-care practices. She also shared that she's spending longer enjoying the little things. "I can take a little bit of extra time and take a 10-minute bath instead of a 3-minute bath. I think self-care is very important even if you just take a few minutes."
The Riverdale actor told Elle that she often turns to writing as a form of self-care. "I journal a lot for nobody but myself," she said. "Just to get my thoughts out and to clear my mind. That's very therapeutic to me."
The rapper is known for his love of getting his nails done. He told The Fader, "As males, we all have feminine ways, just like women have masculine ways, so it's okay to tap into those inner ways...I'm a man that can tap into my feminine side and still know that I'm a masculine man with a manicure."
During an interview with Marie Claire, the Titanic actor said, "I am in love with my Peloton bike. My family and I all share it and sometimes fight over it. I found that when I was filming Mare of Easttown, that was almost the one thing I couldn't have gone without, because of the way it helped me decompress. The sweat factor, the challenge of it, the great chat from the instructors. Sometimes I'd wail, I'd yell, or I'd cry on the bike; I can release so much."
During an interview with The Cut, the Orange Is the New Black actor shared that she focuses on gratitude lists and meditation. "As soon as I wake up, I try to write down five things I’m grateful for. Then, I’ll do some transcendental meditation, at least 20 minutes. If I jump into the day without meditating or doing the gratitude list, then I have to do a catch-up at some point, to center myself in my body."
In an interview with Elle, the tennis star said, "I think self-care is very important to prioritize in life. When you make time for yourself, you feel like the best version of you and that extends into other facets of life. My self-care routine varies – whether I’m trying a new product or staying loyal to my feel-good classics like coconut oil, I always carve out moments to tend to myself and nurture my body."
The singer told GQ that what makes him feel "beautiful" is his night cream. "I feel like men just go to sleep," he said. "They may wash their face or they don’t even bother – they go to sleep with the day face on. You really need to do a gentle wash and put a night moisturizer on. I need the night cream because when I wake up, I feel very beautiful, moisturized, and ready to have people making eye contact with me, ready to look above my eyebrow, below the eyebrow. That’s the life hack right there."
When asked about self-care, the Riverdale star told Elle about the power of saying no and "knowing when you just need to go home and be alone. Now, more than ever, I value my alone time because in an industry like this that's very chaotic, a lot of people need things from you."
18.And finally, Lizzo
The "Rumors" singer shared an Instagram video of herself speaking kind words to her stomach while caressing it. "I love you so much," she said. "Thank you so much for keeping me happy, for keeping me alive."
