Things to do instead of Feeling Like Shit. (ED Recovery)
1.) Have an apple and a glass of water.
2.) Go get/ give yourself a manicure/pedicure
3.) Read a magazine/a book
4.) GO INTERNET SHOPPING AND MAKE A LIST!
5.) Make a list of gifts to give your loved ones and add it all up. Even if you can’t really afford certain things, sometimes you can come across ideas for little things you can make or get for holidays/anniversaries/birthdays/just because gifts.
6.) Warm Epsom salt baths are great for relaxing tension if you are stressed and for muscle relaxation if you get delayed onset muscle soreness.
7.) It’s okay if you don’t want to work out. But just know that exercise can make you feel better, even if it’s just something like walking your dog or going to the mall to window shop/ walk round.
8.) Watch something engaging, something that makes you think, something that makes you realize how amazing and beautiful life is. Watch something interesting that occupies your thoughts and just focus on it. Or watch something that just makes you feel good and not think at all.
9.) Go for a drive if you can. It’s fall/winter, go see the trees, make a playlist, and grab a friend or go alone if you want. Go see how pretty your town is and maybe find a few places just for you to go to and know about.
10.) Lay in bed and just rest when you need to. Don’t make it a habit, but do take your rest days when you need them for mental/emotional/physical whatever reasons. It’s okay. You’ve spent enough of this life pushing and pushing yourself. Let yourself rest for a day here and there. Everyone needs a break.
