Thought we could use this thread as a little space to post positive things that we have achieved each day, that are good for our wellbeing. 

So, for example, today I have watched a film in bed and I washed my hair. I also made the effort to go see my GP, get my blood test done and pick up my medication for the week. 

Today has been a bit of a self care day for me!

What have you done today that to look after yourself?

    Does crying count? like it seems sad but i feel i neglect my emotions sometimes and all i need is a good cry, i don't talk or ramble enough so its my way of just calming down x :)

    I went to work :lol:  might not be much but it's good for me, being around people and its a distraction from my thoughts, I like being busy :)

    Crying is a good release even if we feel so awful durig the time of our tears. Crying also is in part, healing. It lets out all those bottled up feelings and it doesn't matter one bit if it's self-pity. Crying is good and I'm pleased that you have been.

    I've had a good boo today. And feel better for it. Also, I did some light exercise, especially on this left leg and it is feeling easier and less painful to walk on.

    Slept for ages, and spent the day in my pajamas watching films

    Allowed myself to have a little meltdown and then moved on from it :)

    It's good to just let ourselves have that sad or frustrated moment sometimes xo

    Made the effort to have a decent breakfast! Surprising how much difference it makes to the day.

    Giving myself time while having intense emotions/thoughts. 
    Time can really help

    Today in community time I actually had a good laugh with my form tutor even if I was meant to be doing homework. We were laughing because the year 8's are so good at doing blowfish impressions. And also because the year 8's kept cheating in the game.
    It's Christmas time. There's no need to be afraid. At Christmas time we let in light and we banish shade. And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy. Throw your arms around the world at Christmas time.

    Weight training. Every other day. I find it a really good mood elevator.

    Pampered myself with a bubble bath and a facemask, and even exfoliated! And then had fun painting  my nails :)

    Ooh good to see this thread making a return. :)

    I got up a few hours before work to have breakfast, chill, and generally wake up.

    Boxxing! Feeling so hyped and energetic but also frustrated so I channeled it into a positive thing
