What caught my eye about this particular blog is the post about Self – Care when we’re not sure how we feel. I find myself in this case often, and I try to be graceful with myself.

The blog title is Sarah Steckler’s Mindful Productivity Blog.

Her Self -Care suggestions when we don’t know what we feel are the following:

  1. Give yourself permission to feel whatever you need to feel
  2. Let go of trying to analyze it and just be with it
  3. Get physically comfy – put on something that makes your body feel at ease
  4. Learn to build self-compassion by speaking to yourself as you would a friend
  5. Close your eyes and think of your favorite place
  6. Ask a friend to remind you of something ridiculously funny
  7. Make some tea
  8. Drink extra water and visualize yourself flushing out negative feelings and energy you don’t need – the water will help give you extra energy, too!
  9. Put on your headphones and listen to music that makes you feel good
  10. Go for a walk in nature without your phone and soak in the atmosphere
  11. Revel in the joys of escapism. Give yourself permission to dive into your favorite shows on Netflix that make you smile
  12. Settle in with a good book
  13. Ask for family or friends to help you out. If you have roommates or a partner, ask them if they can make you dinner or take care of something for you.
  14. Tell your coworkers you’re feeling off and allow yourself to be vulnerable, chances are if you have a bomb work crew, that they will do something to make you feel better, even if it’s just listening
  15. Make a list of any of the following things to give yourself a healthy distraction:: Things that make you smile :: Movies you want to watch again :: Places you’d love to drive to if you had an entire day on the open road :: What you’re grateful for :: Nice things that people have said to you :: Memories that warm your heart
  16. Wrap yourself in a giant blanket and curl up under the covers in a dark room. Don’t worry if it sounds melodramatic if it makes you feel comforted and safe, it’s worth it!
  17. Spend some time coloring!
  18. Jump on Pinterest and create a board of things that make you feel comforted and at peace
  19. Watch cute animal videos
  20. If you have pent up energy, take yourself to the gym, pool, or walk it out
  21. Take some time for self-care. Paint your nails, take a long bath, do what makes you feel pampered.
  22. Light candles and cuddle up with a pet
  23. Invite your friends over for a board game night
  24. Bake something or make yourself dinner. If you’re not someone who’s into cooking, order your favorite take-out and watch an awesome movie.
  25. Give yourself permission to take care of yourself today. It’s okay to put things aside. Taking time to invest in you is important
