In the past year, Aly Raisman (@alyraisman) has spoken openly and loudly about the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, as an outspoken advocate for victims of abuse, and in her work for prevention and awareness. But her efforts to fight for other survivors and to educate adults in the sports world on how to prevent child sexual abuse can sometimes take both a physical and mental toll. "If I want to be able to advocate for change, I also have to have balance in my life," Raisman tells SELF. The gold medalist shares with us the self-care routine she does daily to maintain that balance (link in our bio). Design: @morgannjay | #alyraisman #selfcarematters

This week, @selfmagazine editor-in-chief @carolynkylstra shares her personal connection to Holly Glenn Whitaker's "7 Things That Inevitably Happen to Your Personal Life When You Get Sober" on SELF: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I don't consider myself an alcoholic, but I've certainly had a complicated and unhealthy relationship with drinking in the past. About six years ago I made a conscious decision to change my drinking habits and cut way back on my consumption. I still have a drink every now and then, but when I go to the doctor these days I can honestly measure my alcohol intake in drinks per month, rather than per week (or per day). Anyone who partied with me in my early twenties knows what a transformation that is. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The decision to change my relationship with alcohol and how I used it was a hugely positive choice that has made a real difference for my health and happiness. But it was also really difficult from a social perspective—some of my friendships had been primarily built around getting wasted, and it was definitely hard to navigate the sudden awkwardness and uncomfortable emotions that arose from making this transition. The quote I posted above is from a story about that very topic: How to navigate your social life as a newly sober person. Again, I don't fully abstain, so my situation is different—but even as a non-sober person who just intentionally cut back, I found the writer's experiences and advice really relatable. Wish I'd read this piece six years ago, tbh. I hope it's a helpful resource for anyone who is feeling uncomfortable with their alcohol use and considering a change."

"Not normally a mantra-hat person, but I can get behind this message. To be clear, I'm not looking at this as an indictment of medication (which, for many people, can be life-saving and necessary). Instead I think of the 'magic pill' as the pervasive messaging too often associated with 'wellness'... the promises of quick fixes or life-changing secrets that the experts don't want you to know. The truth is a lot more boring: tend to your relationships, get good sleep, nourish your body with delicious and nutritious foods, move your body, treat yourself with kindness, manage your stress, hydrate... you know, all that unsexy and obvious stuff. Not as exciting as a magic pill, but a lot more effective." -@carolynkylstra | #TeamSELF
