The pandemic era of isolation has forced many of us to spend more time with ourselves than ever. Along the way, it has reshaped our approach to health and wellbeing, and emphasized the value of daily expressions of self-care. But times of great crisis lead to great innovation, as history has shown us repeatedly. And activities that began as a means to help people cope have since evolved into more permanent self-care practices that will be carried into the new “normal.”
So, to ensure self-care remains a top priority this summer, we brought together the most trusted experts in the world of wellness–doctors, dermatologists, nutritionists, and small business owners–for our Self-Care Summit presented by Ketel One Botanical.
The expansive day of programming included roundtable conversations, live workouts and expert workshops covering everything from the clean beauty revolution to radical authenticity and living true to your values, to everything you never knew about your pelvic floor and much, much more. Remi Ishizuka and Nate Pontious closed the day with an epic HIIT Homebodies workout.
ICYMI, we captured the highlights from our Self-Care Summit presented by Ketel One Botanical, to distill them into 5 self-care rituals you can create for yourself at home. Now, more than ever, self-care is essential. Keep scrolling to kickstart your own self-care summer!

Start a Gratitude Journal
As a former radio host and entertainment reporter for Access Hollywood, E! News and MTV, Liz Hernandez built a career on words, and her latest chapter as the founder of WORDAFUL is no exception. Realizing how our thoughts and words from yesterday are what make up our lives today, WORDAFUL is a new form of storytelling that emphasizes our connection to the power of words. A gratitude journal is a simple yet powerful tool to begin transforming our inner dialogue, which in turn can help cultivate more meaningful relationships and lives.
Clean Up Your Beauty Routine
Self-care, in part, includes cutting toxic things out of your life–including toxic ingredients in your beauty and skincare products. In the current climate of the beauty industry, ‘clean’ can take on different meanings, but the one thing we can all agree on is that beauty products should be good for you and your skin (and make you feel great!).
