Meditation, journaling and affirmations are growing in popularity.
When COVID-19 hit, many people honed in on their self-care routines as a way of coping with pandemic-related stress. And, it seems we still can’t get enough #selfcare content.
Self-care content is currently dominating as one of the most searched hashtags on TikTok and has now reached a total of 22.3 billion views.
