On a good day, put together a little self-care package you can pull out for bad days. Include a few things you know will help.

Change can be hard. Taking care of yourself is a change that's worth the work.

Do you have a small daily ritual? Something you do just for you?

Don't forget that everybody is different! These toots are just suggestions - take the ones you think might help and leave the rest. Be kind to yourself.

Take breaks. Set a timer if you have to so you don't forget.

Water is good for you year round. If you're thirsty, you're dehydrated.

You don't need fancy pens or notebooks to keep a journal and it might help to put your thoughts down somewhere.

Take a break before you need it. It will make it easier to prevent burnout.

Indulge your creativity by drawing, painting, sculpting, etc, even if you don’t think you’re good at it.
