32 Small Things to Do for Yourself Today

Our lives are definitely different, but life is still happening. I don’t want to jump the gun here or speak a little too soon as things can change within a millisecond, but I’ve been feeling a little better lately. Maybe I’m beginning to get used to the slow rhythm of quarantine life, or maybe my mood has just let me be less caught up in my feelings.

Oddly, I feel like I’m inhaling and exhaling a little less heavily since this has all began, and I really want to take that as a good sign. My honest feelings since lockdown have been up and down and all over the place. At the start of all of this, I felt afraid of possibly regretting wasting away my time and not having anything to show at the end. But I think I’ve found a happy medium – doing what I can and easing up on the self-pressure. I’m unsure how long this comfortable state of mind will last, and I’m uncertain how I’ll handle what comes my way next, but I want to indulge in the current.

Perhaps you need to relax and recover to feel better, or maybe you need to feel like you’ve accomplished a goal and rearranging your wardrobe. Choose happiness and make it your first priority of everyday. Do things in moderation, and remember, not everyday has to be a huge checklist.
