  1. Start a journal. Pick a subject to write about each time you make an entry. For example:
    • Name 10 things for which you are grateful.
    • Make a list of short-term goals.
    • Write down 10 words to describe yourself.
    • Name some internal and external resources you have to help you through the pandemic.
    • Share something that has made you proud or happy in the past two weeks.
    • Write about current challenges in your life.
    • Make a list of everything you’d like to say “no” to.
  2. Take a walk outdoors – in your yard, on your street, or at the park.
  3. Go to bed 30 minutes earlier than usual. If you generally cut your sleep short because you have too much to do, this is a great time to be well-rested.
  4. Call someone you haven’t talked to in a while and enjoy catching up.
  5. De-clutter your desk or a room.
  6. Spend an entire day without looking at social media.
  7. Pull out a cookbook or go online for a recipe you’ve never made – whether it’s an awesome salad or delectable new entrée.
  8. Watch a sunrise or sunset or appreciate something in nature you rarely have time to notice.
  9. Get rid of five things you never use.
  10. Write down a playlist of favorite songs from your past and listen to them.
