  • Great reminder to look after ones self, like car maintenance, it oft times is forgotten until the red light comes on. Thanks!
    (Pssst: The links to the Beth Pickens book are broken)

    • (I found the link to be broken, too, despite several tries.)

    • I just checked, they are available at bookshop.org. Support actual bookstores!

    • Link still not working.

  • So much YES!

  • A day? I think I’ll need at least a week per month….

  • I’m a knitter and a retired life coach, and I loved this article! Thanks for sharing your tips and your wonderful way of writing them!. They will be used. I’ve created my day and have it on the calendar!

  • This should work for me! I need to decide whether to order checks ever again, among all the things to do.

  • So smart and great timing. Thanks!

  • An entire day “off” is simply not within the realm of possibility for me. Maybe when I’m 80, if I live that long? It’s a nice thought, just completely unrealistic.

    • I agree with you, with twins remote schooling, working at night when I can fit it in…still going through the stay home days of a third wave where I live. This just feels unrealistic right now.

  • Thank you for this timely reminder!

  • Everything on that list makes me grimace. Those are the things I do in a panic at the last possible second. You’re suggesting that by getting out in front of them, I might panic less often?
    When I’m feeling Uber-adulty (I’m turning 50 next month) I bribe myself to do the hard things with shiny new knitting magazines or maybe some chocolate. But you’re saying adults do this stuff just to take care of themselves, no bribes included. I guess I still have some growing up to do. Yeah, my side of the street is a bit chaotic. #goals

  • Thank you for this.
    Agreed. So timely right now.
    BTW: Sabrina Hersi Issa rocks!!!

    Peace
