Pinned toot

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!

Take a few minutes to do something just because it makes you happy.

Pick one thing that you need to do and get it done so it’s off your mental to do list.

Novel, new, silly, & unusual activities can help lift your mood.

Listen to an audio book. There are lots of public domain ones here:

Review your todo lists. Is there something you no longer need to do?

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

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.

Set an alarm so you remember to eat regular meals if you have a tendency to get caught up in work and forget.

If you're struggling with time management, learn about how others approach it. Here's some information that may help:

Pause for a moment and take a few deep breaths.

If you haven't already, turn on the nighttime mode on your devices a few hours before bed. Blue light disrupts your sleep.

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

Keep some paper and pencil handy for doodling shapes and relaxing your mind.

Next time you're outside, take a look at the clouds.

Have you taken a moment to breathe in the last hour?

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

It's that time again! Allow your shoulders to drop. Let your jaw loosen.

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

Make a to-do list if you're feeling overwhelmed. Sometimes it helps to break things down into smaller pieces.
