Drew Barrymore is putting her wellness first during her week off and is excited to see how differently she feels at the end of her break.

The 46-year-old actress shared a photo of a yellow sticky note next to a scale that reads: "Say something kind to yourself" on Instagram on Tuesday. In the caption, she explained that she was planning to "totally take care of myself and put wellness first" for the week as she never usually has time to prioritise self-care due to her work schedule and two children.

"The point of wellness to me is the mental! I am exhausted from work," The Drew Barrymore Show host wrote. "I don't care what the number (on the scale) says! But, I feel bloated from eating like c**p. Sleeping too little. Working so much. I have a week off and I plan to scrape those barnacles!"

Barrymore shared that she needs a "redo reboot," which involves "eating healthy, meditation, walking, staying balanced," things she finds hard to do "in the middle of real life".

"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!" she continued. "Well, I actually have the time right now! So i am Interested in #whataweekcando. 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."

"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," the Never Been Kissed star concluded her post.
