What Are Your Self Care Goals?


Well-Known Member
My new self care goals (not all but some of them)

~Make a doctors appointment
~refine my diet and significantly lower intake of sugar and dairy completely and never drink, especially alone..
~pursue activities I enjoy that I do on my own free will (already got volunteer going, just about maintaining it).
~Find a job that I can enjoy and get growth out of along with a new source of income (this is a goal that will take some searching and preparation)
~Save money every month to put away for emergencies
~Stop looking at my life through a negative filter and challenge my assumptions.

My self care has drastically improved. I no longer need to worry about hygiene but I remember going many days without showering or brushing my teeth.

Now I take care of my nutrition by
- drinking enough water
- taking vitamins
- taking my herbal remedies (since I just gave up the Prozac again)
- having a small meal and a good healthy dinner

My emotions are what need my full attention these days so I self-care by
- prayer and meditation
- being outside daily (either walking in the woods or sitting on my porch)
- reading and writing
- doing hobbies
- keeping busy with my pets
- self-therapy

Keeping my dreams alive by
- sticking to my budget to pay back my debts
- "paying myself first" by putting money away each payday to save for a down payment
- looking at properties and considering areas where I'd like to settle down
- learning about homesteading and taking care of a house without having to hire people

Regulate a sleeping schedule.
Start talking walks at night again to help lose the weight I've gained since I've been out of work.
Find more work so I can have more money and stabilize myself again.
Minimize and/or eliminate people who negatively effect me.

Wash my clothes, clean my living space. Brush teeth, Shower, honestly when I am in the depths of depression I am a pretty disgusting person.

My floors are covered in trash. A fly showed up, I named him peter. I just let him sit on my arm because I can't be bothered to swat him or clean up. He's going to die of old age soon, it's been a few weeks and he is still here.
Stop being a hermit and actually contact others
Sleep on a regular schedule
Eat healthy
Brush my teeth and wear pajamas instead of wearing sweaters
Be more forgiving towards myself
Be more disciplined
Follow through with appointments, assignments and replies in a timely manner
Make an exercise regime
Taking care of my type one diabetes and other medical issues properly
Take 20 mins off each day to meditate

1. Protect the ones I care about.
2. Complete the impossible promise. As promises are kept and NEVER broken.
3. Live a life of darkness whilst earning money for the compensation fund for the third party.
4. Try to live each day as it's my last day on life and help others in showing how remorseful I am. If I have to do the final commitment to be remorseful then so be it. I know #MyLifeMatters now everyday.

2. If in crisis with mental health then speak to CMHT, but don't bother with crisis team
3. Avoid thinking that if you got a job you will be "cured" mental health doesn't work that way

  2. stretch ,take big mindful breaths,get blood n oxygen flowing.
  3. stay present n mindful long enough to accomplish some basic productive tasks in my day.
