Asking for help with small things is a great way to build up the confidence to ask for help with bigger things, too!
Pay attention to your breathing.
Take breaks. Set a timer if you have to so you don't forget.
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.
It's okay to use a timer to remind yourself to take breaks.
Good rest, simple exercise, and hydration. All will help elevate your basic daily wellness.
Starting with a tiny step to work on something you’ve been avoiding will make it easier to tackle.
Set a timer for 5 minutes and clean up the space around you.
Hey! Did you look out the window today?
Don’t skip sleep to get things done.
Look at something beautiful in nature. It can be a house plant or a picture of your favorite animal if you can't get outside.
Small actions, even on tasks you'd rather avoid, make them easier to accomplish.
Change can be hard. Taking care of yourself is a change that's worth the work.
If you commute, take a different route if you can.
At the end of the day remind yourself that you did the best you could today, and that is good enough. ~ Lori Deschene
