Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Try an app for your phone and computer that reduces the blue light on your screens at night.
If you're feeling sleepy or fatigued, try washing your face with a warm towel. It can be refreshing.
Take a small break from the screen.
Drink more water. The benefits are endless.
Self care can be small, simple, and take just a moment. Fit it into your daily life.
Are the tools you're using working for you? What needs to change?
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.
Build a blanket fort. Seriously. Oh, and do not bring your phone into it.
Indulge your creativity by drawing, painting, sculpting, etc, even if you don’t think you’re good at it.
Commit to posting mostly or only positive things on your favored social media site for a while.
Take a nap if you need to. Set a timer.
Is your seat comfortable? Can you adjust your chair properly?
It's okay to go to bed early.
Being tired is not a badge of honor. It doesn't make you more worthy, it just means you're tired.
Take a few minutes to do something just because it makes you happy.
Write a note to yourself about something good you've done recently.
When you eat something, try to make it nourishing.
Set an alarm so you remember to eat regular meals if you have a tendency to get caught up in work and forget.
Sometimes it's about the little steps. Brush your teeth. Wash your face.
