Taking care of yourself.

I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about self care this week. Below are just a few that stuck with me. The comments on Captain Awkward are amazing.

I’ve been having some body/health issues lately and it’s been driving me nuts how quickly my life/work balance falls apart when you’re not at 100%. In order to get myself back level I’ve been letting myself go to bed early if I want, taking my vitamins, curling on the couch with the pup to watch too much anime, and reading books in bed.

Yes, I have things that need to get done, but the things will be there tomorrow. What are you doing to take care of yourself?

To Do List

  1. Life
    1. It’s October so I’ve slowly started doing my Christmas shopping.
    2. Need to clean the carpet in my house.
    3. Bug bombing this Saturday.
    4. Need to pick up rat traps for the garage since I don’t want to put down poison with the feral cats around.
    5. I want to move furniture again and pick up a few things to pretty up the house for the fall, like a fluffy blanket for the couch and new pillows.
    6. Waiting on test results, but I at least went to the doctor and am being checked out.
  2. Writing
    1. I’m prepping for Nanowrimo and have a bunch of outlines to write up tonight. Tonight is World Building with my Nano group online so hopefully I will get some solid work done.
    2. I need to integrate my notes and new scenes into the novel. I realized that the world viewpoint of my character will be changed after the new scenes and I have some editing and reworking to do on the end of the book.
    3. I’m trying to wrap up several fan fictions before Nano but not making much progress.
