There are many reasons why the CW series Riverdale may be one of your favorite shows around – the drama, the romance, and the suspense certainly have us tuning in week to week, but we also love how the series brings mental health issues and awareness into the spotlight.
Offscreen, too, many of the show's actors have opened up about their own personal struggles with issues like depression and anxiety, sharing their stories with fans in hopes of breaking down the stigma surrounding such important topics. At the recent CW Upfront in New York City, Elle even asked several members of the cast how they engage in self-care and keep themselves grounded as the show skyrockets them to new levels of fame they never even imagined.
What is self-care anyway? It's taking the time to see what your individual needs are and make every effort to fulfill those needs for your own well-being. We were inspired to round up the important ways the Riverdale cast specifically keeps their health in check – and their stories may even inspire your quest to find safe and calming activities in your own life.
