For #100DAYSOFHALLOWEEN HAPPY– My self care plan
I am a great believer in self care- after all if something happens to me what will happen to my dog?
So here are some things I do to keep myself on track when times get tough and the holidays ( which can be depressing ) are upon me:
No matter how much it pains me at time- I get out into the world and I explore it, participate in it, find things that are good about it. The bonus is I get get a lot of exercise when I do this.
I watch my diet- by that I mean I eat regular meals on plates and not out of a microwave dish while standing at my kitchen window and NOT seeing what is outside.
I hang out with people- my family, my friends, people I ride the train with. I don’t isolate myself. People are ok. I like them just fine. Not as much as dogs, but still-I do enjoy the company of humans. Most of the time.
Most important of all, I write every single day.
The math is simple- when I write I like myself. When I don’t write I find I am just existing from day to day- when I eat at my kitchen window and ignore the big bad I don’t like myself.
So I write and I create and I look forward to doing it the tomorrow and the day after tomorrow and the next day –
So there is my day to day self care plan- maybe some of it will help you out or maybe some it will just make you smile. Either way. I think that is okay.
