Discussion Thread: Self-Care

What are you doing to do to take care of yourself today, or in the near future, as soon as you can?

If you are someone who has a hard time engaging in self-care, or figuring out easy, fast, and/or inexpensive ways to treat yourself, and you would like to solicit suggestions, please feel welcome. And, as always, no one should offer advice unless it is solicited.

Well, this isn't exactly a fun self-care thing, but today I scheduled an appointment for bloodwork I need to get done. I've been putting it off, even though it's just routine stuff to check my thyroid etc. I'm such a pointless procrastinator about medical appointments, but now it's on the calendar, which is a good thing and an important piece of self-care for me.
