I thought quitting would help, but it barely did.

Maybe I should try it. Deep down, I knew that I needed to take my mental health more seriously, or I would find myself in the same place I had been almost four years earlier: Laid off from my dream gig as a food editor and in rehab for alcoholism. After losing my job in April due to too many absences mostly because I was too hungover—or, worse, blacked out—to come in to work , I spent a couple of months drinking even more, until my mother arrived in New York City to drag me home to Florida and into rehab.

Thanks to a diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder, I made real strides in taking care of myself with the help of a therapist and by staying sober. But after two years, the scales began to tip in the other direction. I knew that I needed to start taking better care of myself mentally, physically, and emotionally.

For many of us, just seeing all of those picture-perfect self-care images on social media can be stressors themselves. I often wonder: How do people afford some of this stuff? So if I tried to indulge in that more often than once a month, my serenity would go right out the window with my wallet.

Unlike pedicures, face masks, or massages, my newly-found zen came with no price tag or planning needed. Myisha Battle , a sex and dating coach based in San Francisco and host of the sex-positive podcast Down for Whatever , says my new attraction to masturbation makes sense, not only because it feels good, but simply how the body works.
