Go get a drink of water. Stay hydrated!

Take breaks. Set a timer if you have to so you don't forget.

When you're able, take a few moments and rest.

Establish boundaries and stick to them.

Take a break before you need it. It will make it easier to prevent burnout.

Listen to the wind, the rain, the sound of a crackling fire. IRL if you can and with an app if you can't.

Put on some of your favorite music.

It's not just you. You're not alone.

Don't forget that everybody is different! These toots are just suggestions - take the ones you think might help and leave the rest. Be kind to yourself.

Rearrange all of your furniture in a way that makes you more comfortable or just to try something fresh in your living space.

Drink some more water. When was the last time you filled your cup?

Take some time to cook yourself a good, nourishing meal.

Listen to a podcast about something that interests you that you haven’t yet explored.

Are you clean, fed, dressed, and rested?
