What have YOU done for self-care lately?

If it doesn't seem to fit anywhere else, this is probably the place for it.

What have YOU done for self-care lately?

Unread post by CaitlinEve »

Life can be very stressful and with everything going on right now in the world, self-care is more important than ever!

So, what's something you've done recently to take care of yourself? It can be anything that makes you feel good, from taking a bubble bath to reading a good book! If you don't have any recent examples, try practicing self-care this week!

I'll start: with all the cold weather in the Midwest, I've been enjoying sitting in front of the space heater with my 3DS! :D

This is such a good question!
The last things I’ve done for self care have both been today actually. I got a good night’s sleep for the first time in days, and put on an ASMR recording to listen to. Those are two of the most relaxing things I can think of, I really should do them more!

This week I've had to attend a crowded, in-person event. This is super out of my normal routine as someone who lives alone and works from home 98% of the time! I tend to get really overstimulated in situations like this, so this year I showed up early to scope out a couple of out-of-the-way nooks that I could escape to if I was feeling overwhelmed and just take a few breaths or read a few pages of my book for a few minutes. It helped SO much!
