2022 is the year that we get serious about our self-care routine. As the world starts to get back to normal after the chaos of the pandemic, it’s time to put ourselves first. Self-care can feel overwhelming at first. It’s not like your skincare routine with a structure or products to use. Your self-care is what you make it.
That’s why we love to use TikTok for inspiration. The beauty of your self-care routine is that it’s all about you. It means you can focus on what makes you happy, whether it’s kickstarting a fitness routine or learning how to cook healthy recipes. Whatever your preferences are, we’ve got one TikTok user you need to be following.
Meet Sami Clarke (@sami_clarke on TikTok). This influencer has over 215k followers and more than 2.8 million like son her profile. Her platform is all about sharing health, fitness, and wellness related content. Sami also shares meal plans and workouts to make your self-care routine as stress-free as possible. You can follow her YouTube page – with over 400k subscribers – here.
We’re sharing a few of our favourite self-care TikTok videos by Sami to give you an idea of how you can incorporate her tips into your daily routine.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Not only does it nourish your body, but it also sets you up for the day ahead. Every day is a chance to reset your life and tick-start your wellness routine.
We love this video from Sami as it shows 5 breakfast ideas that you can easily create at home. You’ll see everything from breakfast tacos to protein smoothies, chia seed pudding, egg and avocado toast, and banana egg pancakes. It’s proof that breakfast can be your favourite meal of the day.
If there’s anything Sami Clarke could tell you to do, it’s to start dating yourself. It might feel like a foreign concept, but ‘dating yourself’ is a core part of her self-care routine. This mentality is all about prioritizing yourself and your needs.
Prioritize spending time with yourself by taking yourself on a date. Speak to yourself like you speak to the people you love. Treat your mind, body, and soul the way that you treat the people you love. Dating yourself is a state of mind – and one that should be at the heart of your self-care.
While we want to be aiming for 30 minutes of exercise a day, any exercise is better than none. Sami promotes exercising and fitness as a core part of her self-care routine. Getting in a few minutes of exercise can help you to de-stress and focus on your mind on the task at hand.
We love this short 5-minute workout routine from Sami Clarke as it’s quick and easy to follow. You don’t need any equipment and can do it in the office or your bedroom. It’s the perfect way to wake your body up in the morning and give yourself a refresh on your lunch break.
One of the most important parts of your self-care journey is to realise that it’s okay to have off days. You want to remember that social media is simply a highlight reel – especially for big influencers like Sami.
In this self-care video, Sami shares a few of her tips on how to accept and overcome an off day. She recommends reaching out to ask for support from the people you love, whether it’s your best friend of sister. Instead of beating yourself up, do something nice for yourself. It could be as simple as going to a movie or grabbing your favourite Starbucks drink.
Most importantly, let yourself feel your emotions and embrace them. And it’s more than okay to put on your ‘sad girl’ playlist, drive around with the windows down, and sing to your heart feels happier.
Sami is a firm believer in the art of manifesting. If you’ve ever been on TikTok, the chances are that you’ve seen at least one video talking about this form of meditation. Manifesting is the personification of “if you can dream it, you can be it”. It’s about telling the universe what you want and acting like you already have it.
This manifesting POV on Sami’s channel shares a sneak peek into her daily routine while travelling. It shows her meditating, working out, enjoying wholesome food, and exploring nature. Start living the life you want today by manifesting.

TikTok is the home of some of our favourite hair trends. Whether it’s Ariana Grande-inspired ponytails or a double ponytail, TikTok has a hair trend for everyone.

TikTok is an app most of us swore to stay away from before the pandemic. A lot can change in a year. It’s now an app we look at before even checking out Instagram or Twitter.

When we need beauty inspiration, there’s one place that never fails. TikTok.
