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 am going to watch reruns of The Good Place as soon as I have some free time, because that show just makes me ridiculously happy.

This photo is currently the wallpaper on my phone, and it just makes me grin every time I look at it.

In related Good Place news, Mary Steenburgen talking about how much she loves her husband Ted Danson (who plays Michael) is probably the cutest thing you'll read all day, if you need to read cute things as part of your self-care.
Among the other qualities Steenburgen says she loves about Danson are that he's "a feminist," he's passionate about protecting the world's oceans, and that she misses him when he leaves the room — "I would literally sign up for 100 more lifetimes with him," she says.
