Physical exercise

Luna_Child in reply to RoxieDawn

If you keep yourself in shape,. eat well and get your rest it produces amazing results.

Brush teeth and hair

Taking a shower to start the day 🙂

Get dressed... look presentable.

Not fabulous... just presentable.

Sounds simple but like a friend of mine said,

If I go around in my pajamas all day... then I feel like I’ve been in my pajamas all day!


Someone22 you're easy to pick out like a needle in a haystack. Run!

I have coffee every morning while reading. I take a shower put on make up and get dressed and put on jewelry even if I’m not leaving the house. This is my way of telling myself that I’m worth the time and effort

Luna_Child in reply to Ringlove

That's awesome 😊

I've been thinking about putting makeup on too because I'm totally out of the habit of using it now.

You're my inspiration. I'm going to start tomorrow.



Hugs 🤗

I have thought about putting on makeup even if I don't plan on going anywhere but I keep convincing myself it's not worth it since I'm just at home by myself and my cat. But I completely understand the reason to do so! When we look at ourselves in the mirror we don't like what we see it affects our self-esteem. Getting dressed, maybe putting some perfume on, polishing your nails or something that makes you feel more presentable is a great idea. Even if it's only being more presentable to yourself.

Luna_Child in reply to Ringlove

Thank you. That's just what I needed. This way when I look in the mirror the ghost has disappeared👻👻👻👻

I eat a balanced diet and sleep well every day. That keeps me going.

BobJensen in reply to BobJensen

I take a shower every day, without fail, and I shave.

Luna_Child in reply to BobJensen

Hygiene is essential as well and I'm sure your wife appreciate's it too.

Giggle 🤣

BobJensen in reply to Luna_Child

Yes. For sure

Luna_Child in reply to BobJensen

Hahahaha 😂

Luna_Child in reply to BobJensen

Great self care Bob. Eating and sleeping well are key ingredients to being mentally and emotionally healthy. Keep it up!


Healthy breakfast and craft coffee. Coffee is a bit of a hobby. If you enjoy it coffee is amazing for mindfulness because it is hot and smells great. I have a collection of makers and a local roaster. It causes me to slow down and appreciate the people who grow and roast it. No anonymous factory.

Luna_Child in reply to Blueruth

Sounds delicious 😋

Hi Luna Child, for me, my daily self care includes "10 minute me time" in meditation and quiet time. (Morning, Afternoon and Evening) Those breaks regenerate the Mind/Bod

Connection in a positive way. :) xx
