Ardene X ME to WE presents Self- Care IRL.
One of our favorite actresses is helping us spread the love. None other than Jenna Ortega!! You know her from the Disney channel, where she played Harley Diaz in Stuck in the Middle. Or maybe you discovered her as Princess Isabel in Elena of Avalor. Since then she’s starred in Jane the Virgin, Richie Rich, and more.
Jenna is such an inspirational girl. She has been vocal about LGBTQ2S rights as well as discrimination issues in the USA.
It was important for us to work with someone like Jenna because she empowers herself by building herself up, doing good for others, and speaking up for what she believes in! All traits we value and strive for. So many young people look up to her and are influenced by her light & positivity!
We are all about spreading positivity too! So in an effort to raise awareness about self-care and how it empowers young girls, our movement honors mental health as we approach International Mental Health Day, this October 10th.
What is WE Well-Being?
Ardene and ME to WE have teamed up to empower youth to become strong, resilient leaders who will take on the world – and change it forever. When you shop the Ardene basics collection, you’re empowering educators and youth to practice self-care for themselves as well as their local and global communities.
WE Well-Being provides students and teachers with tools, resources, and programs to nurture their mental well-being.
Self-care is so much more than a face mask, bubble bath, and getting 8 hours of sleep at night. Caring for yourself & loving yourself promotes self-esteem, confidence, and literally keeps you healthy. Self-care is when we mindfully do something to take care of our emotional, mental, and/or physical health. Having a self-care routine in place improves your mood, reduces anxiety, helps foster a healthy relationship with yourself and everyone around you, and so much more.
Do you feel “too busy” for self-care? We know, looking at all the scribbles in your agenda it can feel kinda messed up. You gotta remember to MAKE TIME to replenish yourself with self-love, and in turn, do something great for your soul. Self-Care IRL is all about embracing real, honest feelings through practices of self-love and acceptance. And this goes way beyond face masks!
We’re laying out 5 ways to help you achieve your best self.
HOW IT WORKS
- Pick a way that speaks to you the most (keep scrollin’)
- Chose something you will do to achieve it

Here are different ways you can commit to self-care:
Health & well-being
How do you recharge after stressful situations? If you don’t recharge, you’ll be running on empty and nothing good can come of that. Here are some ways you can get back to your healthy self:
get enough zzz’s
take a break whenever you need
eat well & hydrate
Conflict and relationships
How do you deal when you’ve had a fight with someone? Or if you heard something negative about yourself through the grapevine? How do you overcome it?
stay away from drama
How does social media make you feel? Social media is a skewed version of reality that highlights the very best parts of someone’s life. It’s like a highlight reel, and it doesn’t show all the bad days. How can you stop the negative cycle?
extend your circle beyond the internet
stop comparing yourself to others
rid your life of toxic people
volunteer and help others in your community
What’s the best way to contribute to your community?
meet up with friends, take the convo offline!
