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.

I'm going to figure out something indulgent to do for myself. I don't know what it is yet, but all the self-care I've been doing lately has been extremely agitating healthcare-related stuff, requiring countless calls to multiple doctors' offices and various departments at my insurance company, many of which have not even yielded good outcomes.

I try to think about it as important self-care, which it is, but the fact is that it's still exhausting, especially when I'm not feeling well to begin with.

So! My next act of self-care will be something truly calming and enjoyable. As soon as I have the energy to figure out what it is, lol.
