People now prioritize self-care more than ever after going through stressful events amid this pandemic. The number of people who see self-care as important is rising.
According to a recent survey, seven in 10 Americans were more conscious of taking care of themselves in 2020 and a good percentage of them intend to prioritize self-care more in 2021 than they did in 2020.according to a new survey.
The poll which was conducted examined the self-care habits of 2,000 respondents and the if they see themselves prioritizing self-care more in the future.
According to the results, two-thirds of the respondents agreed that the personal self-care routines they developed amid the pandemic is now a permanent part of their daily life.
When these respondents were asked which activities they regard as self-care, 47 percent revealed that at-home spa rituals were their go-to, according to the survey. Wellness software company, Vagaro commissioned this survey and OnePoll conducted it.
Other popular activities the respondents mentioned were attending an actual spa, getting a manicure/pedicure, and getting a good haircut.
The poll revealed that three-quarters of the 2,000 Americans surveyed believed self-care can help to relieve stress and will try almost anything to get their stress relief.
There’s an inevitable correlation between stress and self-care. Many people get so caught up in day-to-day responsibilities that they don’t prioritize time to take care of themselves. However, placing importance on activities that encourage relaxation can make you better equipped physically, mentally, and emotionally to face life’s daily stressors.Fred Helou (CEO of Vagaro)
