April is Sexual Assault Awareness month. Take a moment today, every day, and ask what you are doing to take care of yourself.
Self-Care Can Look Like:
(First 7 taken from Mental Health Awareness & Positive Mental Health FB page)
Asking for what you need
Taking a step back
Spending time alone
Putting yourself first
Asking for help
Going for a slow walk in the sun – to breathe and get Vitamin D – not to exercise
Listen to relaxing music
Doing a relaxing craft or making something with a result that leaves you fulfilled
Not pushing yourself to the limit
Getting a massage
Reach out to others if you need to
If you journal reread it and notice the positive changes and progress you’ve made – and yes they are there! It helps to tab these and go back to them often.
Take care of yourself and remember you are not alone.
