Self-care Items

March 2, 2010 at 1:38 pm (Uncategorized)

The Surrendered Wife advocates self-care. The first “exercise” (so to speak) of that book is to list 10 things that are fun, and ten more things that make you feel good about yourself. The goal then is to do three of these things every day.

Things that are fun
-long, looong hot bath
-watching Homicide
-reading MLIA
-reading Sati
-reading mindlessly (or mostly)
-sending cameraphone pictures to too many people
-chiropractor visits
-sitting in a bookstore, reading
-making notes
-watching boxing matches
-eating raw beef
-little time (Daddy time)
-talking to Chris F
-buying things (sometimes)
-closet time
-getting shaving gear ready

Things that make me feel good about myself
-cleaning the kitchen
-staying off the computer, playing with Elijah
-walking dogs
-training dogs
-write love letters
-give encouragement to those I love
-finishing books
-writing blog posts
-sweeping the floors
-getting clean (ie a shower, or a hair-washing shower)
-shaving (myself or Daddy)
