Re: Today I practiced self care by...

Loving all of the self-compassion in this thread! @oyster  it's great that you were able to realise that trying to force yourself to do work when you were so tired and unmotivated would end up being counterproductive, it's so easy for us to try and keep pushing and pushing ourselves, and SO important to know when it's time to give ourselves a break. @ej88  switching off from the outside world is definitely very necessary sometimes and sounds like a very kind way to treat yourself Heart 

 

Today for self care I am planning on having leftovers for dinner, a bath, and an early night!

Today I practiced self care by reading and drinking a warm cup of tea to destress. Right now I am reading Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman and I am really enjoying it. I also took a nap afterwards Cat Happy

Today I practiced self care by sleeping in an extra 15 minutes before getting up for work. Haven't had the best sleep the last few days and wanted to give myself a few more minutes of comfort before a big day of work! 

 

Love this idea for a thread as everyone's self care is different and if you're ever slumped for how to give yourself that extra TLC, you can come here and get some tips!
