Okay, this is a bit late but I think it's pretty timely considering my RL right now!! ;)
I picked 5 things. I know that may seem like a lot and it says pick one, but I have a lot of issues to deal with so frankly doing one at a time isn't going to work with me. Also, I think I stick to things better if I have more of them to focus on as I don't forget the one little thing. My fast break goals are: (drum roll...)
Drink 64 oz of fluid a day (I would love it to be water but in the winter I don't drink water for some reason ... I mean I do but in the warm weather I drink WAY MORE than 64 oz so it's weird that I have such a decrease when it gets cold so I'm counting ANY liquid for the 14 days).
Take my meds EVERY day. I've been really bad about taking my meds complicently. Since I'm on a thyroid med that is NOT a good thing!! I don't like taking them, but I MUST or things could go south real quick.
Do something creative at least once a week. This is a mental health issue for me. I go really depressed and went through a real rough time and part of it was the inability to be creative because I wasn't physically mobile enough to do so. Now I've had neck/spine surgery and am in PT and am able to start doing a bit more and it really helps my mental state. My BFF and I have a saying that buying and making cards (scrapbooks, etc.) is a lot cheaper than therapy!!
Move at least 2 hours a week. Whatever it is, housework, walking, exercises, whatever. A minimum of 2 hours a week, split up in however it needs to be. I KNOW I'll make this one because I'm doing physical therapy and I spend about 45 minutes doing exercises and 15-20 getting my shoulder muscles worked on... they get REALLY tight and it hurts and decreases my mobility.
Stress reduction! Physical: at least once a day take 5 minutes to do something that relieves stress. Crafting, exercising, meditating, stretching, petting/loving on my cats, something. Mental: also read at least one uplifting, affirmative thing every day.
