hello! this is a reminder that i'm extra helpful for techie folk in particular who need reminding to step away from their screens and take in some fresh air, but anyone can follow me. be kind to yourself!

Set an alarm for 2 minutes and focus mindfully on your breathing, nonjudgmentally bringing yourself back from any distractions.

Slow, imperfect progress is better than none at all.

Congratulate yourself for doing difficult things, even if they might not seem difficult to others.

Listen to an audiobook. librivox.org/ has free, public domain books recorded by volunteers.

Set aside time for a hobby. Gardening, drone building, knitting, do something for the pure pleasure of it.

Self care is not a waste of time. Self care makes your use of time more sustainable. ~ Jackie Viramontez

I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival. ~ Audre Lorde

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

Water is good for you year round. If you're thirsty, you're dehydrated.

On a good day, put together a little self-care package you can pull out for bad days. Include a few things you know will help.

Ask for help when you need it. It sounds simple, but trying to handle everything without help causes stress and anxiety for a lot people.

Take action (one small step) on something you’ve been avoiding that will make your life better in the long run.

Don't give up on self care just because something didn't work for you. Keep trying new ways of being kind to yourself!

Did you take your lunch break? Even if you don't feel like eating, take the time to recharge.
