It includes at any second of the day, feeling like I would like 10 minutes alone and doing it. Simply going into my bed room and locking the door and placing my audiobook on. For 10 minutes, I’m not abandoning anybody, however I must decrease my stimulus. Or taking a shower with that tub bomb, which might be as soon as every week, however it’s something that jogs my memory to prioritize myself. Typically it’s only a mantra. I stay and die by Eleanor Roosevelt’s phrases “nobody could make you’re feeling inferior with out your consent.” Typically that’s my self-care, simply saying it to myself. It’s a thousand various things utilized all day, day-after-day, in order that I don’t really feel like I’m drowning.
