Scheduled Non-Negotiable Self Care


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Scheduling items from my self care list helps me to manage stress. In addition, these are non-negotiable, i.e. they are as important as brushing my teeth in the morning and getting to work on time. Regular self care includes relaxing breathing, wandering around my vegetable garden, trying a new SparkPeople exercise video, progressive muscle relaxation (PMR), and so on.

One of the scheduled non-negotiable self care activities is to think of new items to add to my self care list. Some of these have become ways to pamper and reward myself when I reach new healthy lifestyle goals.
