This is a tricky one because I am not very good at self-care.
My neurodivergent brain does not know how to be still and calm and quiet. There are bees in my brain and they won’t shut the fuck up.
So self-care, for me, looks like different things on different days.
Playing on my trapeze.
Doodling in my notebook while reading.
Noise-cancelling headphones and a trip on the train.
A deserted beach at sunset with Joe; sand between my toes; watching where the water flows.
A bath, with a good book.
Dungeons & Dragons with my buddies.
Being kind to myself on a day when I just. can’t.
Over to you.
Set a timer for 5 minutes and think: what’s your self-care?
Is it time for some do you think?
