I am a clone of @selfcare but I only toot every 6 hours for those who want more subtle reminders. Be kind to yourself!
Take time to do what makes your soul happy.
Pick one thing that you need to do and get it done so it’s off your mental to do list.
Did you do anything to take care of yourself today?
Set an alarm for 2 minutes and focus mindfully on your breathing, nonjudgmentally bringing yourself back from any distractions.
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.

Sometimes when it's hard to keep up, it's a better use of your energy to pause instead.
Self-care prevents burnout and reduces stress, that's why.
Take a nap if you need to. Set a timer.
