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!

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

What makes you laugh? Go do it, watch it, read it, if you can.

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.

Sometimes when it's hard to keep up, it's a better use of your energy to pause instead.

You don't have to finish it all today.

To experience peace does not mean that your life is always blissful. It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life. ~ Jill Bolte Taylor

Next time you have a snack, eat something healthy.

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

What makes you laugh? Go do it, watch it, read it, if you can.

Everyone’s level of socialization may vary but as social creatures it’s good for our hearts(literally & figuratively) to find & occasionally stretch our social skills.

Commit to posting mostly or only positive things on your favored social media site for a while.

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

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

Don't use your phone in bed tonight.

Check in with your emotions. How are you feeling?

Doing work (volunteer or paid) that helps others, paid work that covers bills + a little more, & a respectful work environment may help work be sustainable & fulfilling.

Your breathing is your greatest friend. Return to it in all your troubles and you will find comfort and guidance. ~ Unknown
