Everything is Awful and I’m Not Okay: a self-care checklist

This image has been going viral lately and while it is not, not, NOT a cure-all, especially for serious depression, I think part of the reason it’s going viral is because sometimes we forget about the basics of self-care, and they can make a huge difference. As the original creator said, this stuff is “the low-hanging fruit that can clog our ability to cope with everything else, so that we can tackle the hard stuff.”

As freelancers, even if we’re not depressed depressed, keeping these self-care reminders around for days that you just can’t get anything done–or conversely, days that are so hectic that you never leave your desk–can do wonders for your mental state.
