19 ways to be kind to yourself today.
Schedule- in specific time for me time.
Open the calendar on your phone and push aside all activities on a day of your choice. Take whatever day you have chosen and do the things that you want to do and not have to do. There is a difference. Life is too short to fill the calendar with meetings, sales calls, and events. Try filling it with things you enjoy too.
Call in sick
If you’ve done the above and searched your calendar but can’t find a day, call in sick. Be sure not to tell anyone but you’re employer that you’re doing it though. Choosing to tell other defeats the purpose because they will want your attention. Please take this day for yourself and do exactly what it is that you want to do.
Keep it within your means but treat yourself to something that brings you tremendous joy. You work hard for your money and as much as all the experts advise against it, go and spend some of it. Buy whatever makes you feel good. If it’s a comic book, go and buy one. If it’s a pedicure, take those shoes off and sit down. It doesn’t matter what it is, just go and buy it.
Believe in yourself
When things are as challenging as they are, sometimes the best course of action is to simply believe in yourself. Remember what you have done to get where you are and know that the same belief will get you to where you want to go. Once you start to believe again, step outside and scream it as loud as you can so the world can hear your conviction.
Give yourself that much needed pep talk. You know the one. The one that starts with “I am great and I can do whatever I want” and ends with “And I know in my heart all of this to be true.” Not only will it change your trajectory but it will also drastically improve a bad mood.
