There may not be many things we have in common with Beyoncé 's lifestyle considering the fact that, well, she's Beyoncé. That's why it was extra comforting to know that she too relies on self-care rituals to de-stress, and she has even revealed what exactly her personal favourite entails. 

With three kids, a billion-dollar business in music and fashion, and the sheer responsibility of being the most adored woman on the planet, it's no surprise Queen Bey can feel overwhelmed, especially during these testing times. 

Now, the 39-year-old star has generously decided to let her loyal Beyhive in on the go-to self-care ritual she has been practising every day during the pandemic.

Debuting her upcoming Ivy Park “Drip 2” collection, which will be available to shop on 30 October (tomorrow, eek!), Bey shared some useful tips on how she maintains her wellness from the comfort of her bedroom. 

Speaking in a visual fashion show promoting the new line, she said: "This year, it was the first time in my life that I’ve been still. When you have nowhere to go, what do you do?

“I tried to make sure I got five minutes by myself in the bathtub every day”, she revealed during a scene in which she's soaking up bubbles in the bath before being interrupted by her first born, Blu Ivy.

Having a bath is always a good idea. Not only is it' the ultimate de-stress activity, it's also super cosy, especially now that temperatures have dropped, and ensures we get some well-deserved relaxation in. 

Plus, it works wonders for our hair and skin too if you use the right bath oils and salts. Oh, and is it even a bath if you haven't set the right ambience with delicious scented candles and perhaps even a cheeky glass of wine? In the spirit of Beyoncé, go hard or go home.

Meditation, visualisation and breathing exercises are other popular aspects of self-care that the entertainer lives by. "I use tools like acupuncture, meditation, visualisation, and breathing exercises," she revealed in her cover story for Elle last year.
