Quarantine is impacting everyone differently. While some people are able to work from home, many others are on the frontlines of the pandemic. In light of this, this week's theme for Case of the Mondays is all about self-care. Everyone deserves time to recharge. Given most evenings are now spent in the home, we might as well take time to nourish ourselves, both mentally and physically. Help Editor-at-Large Jessie Blaeser decide what to try to for herself, and take some ideas away for how to create your own self-care Monday by voting below.

When you picture a cozy night in, what do you see? A luxurious silk robe? A floor-length fuzzy robe? Bunny slippers? Fuzzy socks? Answer: all of the above.
A huge part of self-care is treating your body well. In your socially distanced haven, would you choose a relaxing yoga session on YouTube or a Pilates burner?
Of course, you have to set the mood with your favorite scent. Are you loyal to Yankee Candle, or are you already counting down the weeks to the Bath & Body Works semi-annual sale?
Products in our households are limited. But there are plenty of healthy hair and face masks you can create with everyday items you have in your pantry and refrigerator. Would you rather care for your skin or your hair?
A color choice can turn your whole mood around. Which will it be?
You may have tried each of these products before, but Jessie has not! A foot mask will make your feet feel silky smooth (so they say); whereas micro-needling packages help smooth and firm your skin. Which will it be?
