Simple and easy self care

"Someone asked me, "Aren't you worried about the state of the world?" I allowed myself to breathe and then I said, "What is most important is not to allow anxiety about what happens in the world to fill your heart. If your heart is filled with anxiety, you will get sick, and you will not be able to help."" -- Thich Nhat Hanh

Tending to yourself can be as simple as:

  • Drinking a glass of water
  • Paying attention to how you're breathing
  • Stretching your arms to the sky
  • Slowly turning your head to the right and to the left
  • Feeling your feet on the ground
  • Making a circular motion with your shoulders
  • Eating something
  • Going outside for a few minutes
  • Putting your legs up the wall during a break
  • Wiggling your fingers and toes
  • Noticing any tension in your body and naming it
  • Checking in with someone you love
  • Stepping away from technology for a bit
  • Validating however you might be feeling
  • Singing your favorite song
  • Softening the muscles in your face
