2. Make a self-care checklist.
Creating a self-care checklist turns a large mental load into small simple tasks. Create a daily checklist: make the bed, get dressed, work out, eat 3 healthy meals, do something outside, etc. Write down a weekly checklist: spend time with friends, go for 2 runs, go to the gym once, watch a sunset, etc. You can even create a monthly checklist: get your nails done, learn how to make 2 new healthy meals, go to the spa, try a new work out, see a movie, and more.
These checklists will allow you to easily prioritize self-care, no matter what is going on.
