Pause for a moment and take a few deep breaths.
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
Get a book from the library (free) or bookstore about some topic you’ve been interested in, but have never taken the time to learn.
Cleaning your space is self care, too.
Set an alarm so you remember to eat regular meals if you have a tendency to get caught up in work and forget.
Make a to-do list if you're feeling overwhelmed. Sometimes it helps to break things down into smaller pieces.
Are you dancing with your life?
Pick one thing that you need to do and get it done so it’s off your mental to do list.
Establish boundaries and stick to them.
It's that time again! Pause for a moment and just breathe.
Hey! Did you look out the window today?
Pause. Take a sip of water.
Be kind to yourself.
Engage in random acts of kindness and altruism. This has been linked to mood boosting.
Don't give up on self care just because something didn't work for you. Keep trying new ways of being kind to yourself!
Are the tools you're using working for you? What needs to change?
Put on some of your favorite music.
When things are hectic, it's okay to say no or tell someone to ask you again later.
Be gentle with yourself today.
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.
