You can turn off the news and sign off social media for a bit. It's okay.
Set aside time for a hobby. Gardening, drone building, knitting, do something for the pure pleasure of it.
Self-care is ongoing. It's not a one and done fix for everything. Take care of yourself today, and tomorrow, and the next day.
If you wear glasses, are they clean? Take a moment and clean them up so you can see a little better.
Novel, new, silly, & unusual activities can help lift your mood.
Unplug. Your mind needs to recharge, too.
Lighten up on yourself. No one is perfect. Gently accept your humanness. ~ Deborah Day
Technology is a tool. Use it wisely.
Starting with a tiny step to work on something you’ve been avoiding will make it easier to tackle.
Take 5 minutes to straighten the space around you. Set a timer.
Review your todo lists. Is there something you no longer need to do?
How can you reduce the amount of social media you're consuming?
Have you stretched recently? Do it now. It will help.
If you're feeling sleepy or fatigued, try washing your face with a warm towel. It can be refreshing.
Is your seat comfortable? Can you adjust your chair properly?
Play a game. Keep a deck of cards handy and play some Solitaire.
It's okay if you didn't get it all done today.
Hey! Did you look out the window today?
Learn something new. It can be as simple as a new way to make a paper hat.
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.
