because self care is important

I know that myself and a couple people on this website often struggle with self-care or just simply forget to take care of themselves, so here are a couple reminders:

  • Have you eaten a proper meal today? At least one? If not go make yourself at least a small snack to eat.
  • How much water have you drunk today? If you haven’t had any go pour yourself a glass and try to at least sip on it throughout the day.
  • When was the last time you took a shower? Are you making sure to clean yourself at least every two days? If you have not been making sure that you are at least a little clean go take a shower. Or a bath. Relax and try to enjoy yourself.
  • Is there medication you should be taking right now? Go take it if you haven’t already.
  • Is anything burdening you? Such as a negative thought? Get it out of your system. Write it down, shout at a wall if you have to. Just get it out and don’t let it bring you down.
  • Are you getting enough sleep? At least a couple of hours a night? If not go take a nap if you can. If you can’t take a nap right now make a point to sleep longer tonight.

I just want to make sure all of you are being healthy, goodness knows I forget to do these things sometimes.

Take care of yourselves (✿◡‿◡)

Just some friendly reminders:

-If you haven’t taken your medication, TAKE IT NOW!

-Remember to drink water and if you haven’t yet today, do it!

-If you haven’t eaten yet, please eat. Even just something small like a granola bar or whatever. Food is important.

-Sleep is important, please make sure that you’re getting at least six to eight hours a night!

-Self-care is important. Treat your body right because it’s the only one you have.

-I’m proud of you for making it this far. Keep going, my little soldier.

-Have you smiled today? If not, find something and smile about it.

-When is the last time you laughed? Watch a funny movie and laugh if you haven’t in awhile.

-Your life is just as important as the next persons is. Please do not take it away. Not today, not ever.

-But most of all, you are beautiful, important, loved and cared about!

take care of yourself! Do something you enjoy like watch your favorite movie, go for a walk, or make yourself a treat. Stay hydrated and please eat something (even if you don’t feel like it). Treat yourself, because self care is important, just like you. It’s okay to take a day for yourself. 💖👌💞👍💕

The Wine Files Days 39-42

This round up of X-Files episodes is brought to you by water. Why no wine? Because I went to an industry tasting on Sunday that featured wine from over 100 wineries and then went out to dinner with friends where we drank more wine and ate too much, so I’ve promised my body I’d be kind to it for the next few days. Because self-care is important.

Let’s look at the episodes I watched while my body started to recover from the weekend.

The Episodes                                                                                                                

S2 Ep15 Fresh Bones

S2 Ep16 Colony

S2 Ep17 End Game

S2 Ep18 Fearful Symmetry

 Fresh Bones features voodoo magic in one of the Carolinas that brings the Agents to a immigration detention center where the Haitians who are kept there just want to go home but instead they are treated horribly by an out of control, culture appropriating, whack-job of a general (or whatever his title was) who is seeking revenge…or something. IDK what he was really after but he was using some dark magic because he was a power hungry moron and also a man started climbing out of Scully’s hand, so.

Colony is the first of a two episode arch that ends with End Game. These are mythology episodes and we meet Mulder’s ‘sister’ who has returned from wherever the fuck she’s been for 22 years. Only *spoiler alert* she’s not really his sister. She’s part of an alien clone colony that is slowly being killed off by an alien bounty hunter and I spent most of these episodes thinking this happened later in the series BUT CLEARLY I’M WRONG.

If you want to cry about animals watch Fearful Symmetry. If you don’t want to get pissed off about how unfairly animals are treating and then wonder why you don’t always feel the same way about humans, don’t watch Fearful Symmetry.

Tune in next when I’ll definitely be way more tipsy (word grammar check is telling me the correct phrasing is ‘tipsier’…fuck that) while writing and we will probably meet up with some other weirdos on this wonderful journey called the X-Files.
