Ally Brooke’s Tips for Self-Care

Ally shares a few simple personal tips to help us feel a little better

September 8, 2020

During an appearance on RADIO.COM's, I’m Listening: LIVE with Dr. Chris Donaghue earlier this year, Ally Brooke spoke up about the importance of music when it comes to our mental well being. Plus she shared her tips and tricks behind her self-care routine.

The "All Night" singer said, “Music is therapy. It expresses you in a way that real words can’t. For me when I hear music it takes me to a whole different place. It uplifts my mood, it encourages me, it can turn a bad day into a good day, it can help me to find inner strength, it can help me to find confidence or find resolution with something.”

The I’m Listening Initiative is all about creating a safe space where all can come together to heal, talk, and learn. With the power of shared stories and experiences from artists and athletes, we encourage you to join us for our live I’m Listening broadcast on Wednesday, September 23. The power of talk can save lives.

As we lead into the days before the broadcast, we're revisiting some of Ally's personal self-care tips to help guide us on our own mental health journeys.

Music has always been a part of practicing strong mental hygiene for Brooke. However, the singer also explained that there is an “umbrella” of activities that make her feel better, but as of late, taking part in some of the most simple things have made her feel at ease. “Even something as simple as baking or cooking, I love doing that," revealed Ally. "It’s very therapeutic for me.”

Focusing on taking downtime from daily tasks such as work has also been something that has provided Ally with more mental ease and stability. She also shares that she tries to talk to family and friends on a regular basis about her feelings so that she doesn’t feel alone.

From taking the time to talk to the ones you trust to simply giving yourself some downtime, it's helpful to remember that self-care comes in many forms, shapes, and sizes. No self-care activity is too menial.
