What have you done today to look after yourself?

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?

    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.
    I'm driven by self doubt.

    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
