Weekly Check-In

It’s still too hot. Tuesday it seemed like everything was going wrong. Lots of little disappointments and things irritating me. It was too hot, my dog was misbehaving, had a bad workout, etc, etc. I tried not to give up and write it off as a bad day and instead tried to look at it as the universe pointing me to self-care. I can’t say that 100% worked but I tried.

Traditional Volunteerism

  • 4 hours Crisis Text Line

Charitable Giving

  • $0

Personal Kindnesses

  • When I Crisis Counsel with Crisis Text Line there is a chat area for all the counselors online. There are a lot of newbies as we continue to grow and I try to join in the conversation and respond when they have questions. It’s easy to get tied up in your own conversations and let someone else chime in. But I remember being new and not knowing what to do in certain situations. I think just saying, “That’s totally normal, I’ve been there too,” was a huge help. (You can be a newbie too – click here to get started)

Self Care

  • After a suggestion from a fellow Crisis Counselor I put some TLC into my eyebrows. It’s funny but it really worked. I’m ready for a big change in my life and starting with beautiful eyebrows seems to be helping. I’m going to follow up with a face mask and a manicure this evening. A little pampering never hurts.

How did you do this week? Do you have a funny self-care idea that works? Share in the comments!
