today I....

What did you do today to pamper yourself and self care.


I've been struggling the last few days and really needed to take time out for myself and do something or several things nice for myself. Self care is a vital part of looking after your mental health and we often don't give ourselves enough credit. Im starting this thread as a reminder of what we do to look after our wellbeing

So today I...
Went into town early and bought a good coffee
Treated myself to bubble tea after a full on therapy session
Bought a new pair of shoes
Surprised my dad at one of his groups
Went to Kmart
Had a bath
gonna cook my favourite meal for dinner

So what is one or more things you did today.

Great idea @redhead!

 

Today I baked a cheesecake from scratch as I find baking really soothing (also I get to eat it afterwards!)

Re: today I....

Heya @redhead

 

Awesome post! It's always the little things that can lead to a pretty good day Smiley Happy

 

Today, (well, more like yesterday now), I...

  • Steam mopped the floor - Weird, but nothing more satisfying than a clean floor
  • Had a toasted salami Turkish bread sandwich 
  • Received my Pink Ladies' jacket in the post today for a costume shin-dig happening next week
  • Almost finished assembling an e-newsletter as a part of being a vollie

Today I....

Had a big sleep in. 

Lifted some weights - for some reason this always makes me feel good?

Re: today I....

This thread is awesome @redhead!

 

I'm going to list stuff from yesterday because I haven't done much yet today

 

So pretend-today I:

  • Enjoyed the pretty walk to and from the appointment I had
  • Had a yummy ice chocolate (the same cafe actaully does pumpkin spice lattes and I'm determined to try one next week!)
  • Bought a book I've been meaning to read
  • Went to yoga class

I think I did pretty well! Later today I'm planning to do some self care by using a Lush face mask Smiley Happy

Re: today I....

Today I went to my favorite park and had some chocolate while relaxing at the awesome fountain.
