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 about to eat some Greek yogurt with pomegranate arils and walnuts and bran buds — which is not only a good way to take care of my self, but also has the added benefit of being delicious!

That is a very specific and immediate act of self-care, lol, but sometimes it's just about doing all the little things you can do, recognizing them as self-care, and reminding yourself to keep doing them, you know?
