Considering the self-care industry is worth a whopping $450 billion, it's no surprise that many of us are shelling out some seriously big bucks for the sake of feeling good. But while $75 face masks and $40 yoga classes certainly have they're place, in reality the top self-care practice you can treat yourself to costs $0, and you're (hopefully) doing it every day already.

Enter: Your morning shower. According to pros, it's one of the best-of-the-best ways to treat yourself on every level. "Aside from the obvious benefits of staying clean, showers can help you achieve amazing mental and physical benefits," says health coach Jim Curtis, CRO at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. "How you wake up and what you do when you wake up can drastically set the tone for how you will think and feel throughout the day, so the way you integrate a shower into your morning routine can make or break your mood for the rest of the day."
