It’s the time of year when, after a week of over-eating and over-indulging for the holiday, we can feel bloated, tired, and a little down.

Fortunately, we have Drew Barrymore to let us feel we aren’t alone in feeling spent from the lead-up to the busy Christmas season – and the 46-year-old busy mom just shared a message to fans we all can relate to as we prepare to welcome a brand new year.


Drew took to Instagram to tell fans she plans to “put wellness first” and emphasized her message by sharing a picture of a scale with a yellow post-it note that read, “Say something kind to yourself.”

“The point of wellness to me is the mental!” Drew captioned her Instagram pic. “I am exhausted from work. I don’t care what the number says! But, I feel bloated from eating like crap. Sleeping too little. Working so much. I have a week off and I plan to scrape those barnacles! I need a redo reboot. And it’s doesn’t matter what my number is. I wanted to start to show my beginning of the week, to show myself what I was capable of, if I had a week to actually practice that term “self care” and I think it’s a load, because most of the time, we don’t actually have time to do it! Well, I actually have the time right now!”

“So i am Interested in #whataweekcando,” Drew told fans of her mission. “Now I know once I go back to kids work life balance, I will most likely not be able to live this healthy. But, it’s great to go hard this week on seeing what I can scrape off myself.”

“That is also about eating healthy. Meditation. Walking. And staying balanced. Which is just hard to do in the middle of real life,” Drew admitted. “But It will be a fun journey to just see how I can totally take care of myself and put wellness first. Which is just not an option most of the time. Which is I guess why they call it balance. PS IM GOING TO INVENT A NEW WAY TO WEIGH.”
