We found this great, simple list on DoLectures’ twitter and find it a helpful reminder for small ways to navigate the day in balance:

Look after yourself.

1, Celebrate small things

2, Celebrate big things

3, Don’t compare

4, Make time for exercise

5, Eat well

6, Look for the good

7, Stop being so hard on yourself

8, Have some rest. And don’t feel guilty about it

9, Give yourself a pat on the back

10, Bed early


It’s curious how difficult some of them can be…The thread that runs through them all is being very very tender…to ourselves….
