Drink a soothing cup of tea
Actually schedule doctors appointments because managing your health IS part of self care
Try to remind myself that my flaws also serve a purpose
Get a massage
Listen to relaxation music while working
Make time for silence at least 10 minutes a day
Call a friend (or go make a friend if you don't have any good ones)
Set aside at least 30 minutes a day for comedy and/or a good laugh-inducing material
When depression or pms symptoms hit, adjust my expectations. I try not to hold myself to the same productivity and energy level standards to be fair to myself When my attitude just won't improve, take a nap and start fresh.
I don't put myself on diets unless the doctor said so. Diets induce shame and I don't need more of it so I utilize mindful eating principles and try to be honest about when I emotionally eat.
