So far: So even though I didn't post a bingo this month, I really wanted to make sure I incorporate self-care into my day-to-day. #SelfCareBingo
#SelfCareIsNotSelfish

Adult/Plan: Starting using my new 2022 planner (it's a school one so it started in August) but.. it helps me feel more organized/centered and all that ⬇ ⬇

ElizaMarie 🌿 New Place/Celebrate accomplishments: I sent to a Scottish pub and had a flight (like super Scottish with accents and everything!) 🌿 Bought myself a gift: Went to the Gallery Walk and bought myself a new nose ring (made in India) 🌿 Guilty Pleasure: Treated myself to some Hot Cheetos with squeezed lime :) yum!!! 🌿

Here‘s my July #selfcarebingo update:
1. The 80s summer playlist on Spotify has been on heavy rotation 2. Said no to plans with my mom (I was tired and needed to stay home and rest) 3. Have been taking a break from exercise 4. Went to the beach and listened to the waves and the seagulls 5. Max cuddled up to me while I was reading 6. Been eating more fresh fruit 7. Did yoga a few times this month 8. Unplugged while at the beach 👇🏻

OriginalCyn620 9. Meditated every day 10. Did a photo challenge this month (not on Litsy or anything, but just for me) 11. Watched 2 of my fave guilty pleasure movies - Dumb and Dumber & Dodgeball 12. Spent the day at the beach with my family 13. Had a movie date with a friend 14. Bought treats for myself this month, ate better, and have done a good job listening to my body 15. Took a day trip to the beach 1y
OriginalCyn620 16. Made a fall bucket list, a fall reading challenge, and self care challenge 17. Took a long, cool shower on a really hot day 18. Have laughed a whole lot 😂 19. Haven‘t set the alarm since the kids are on summer break 20. I love risotto but rarely make it since it‘s such a pain (this was a lemon Parmesan risotto 😋) 1y
PurpleyPumpkin Sounds like you‘ve enjoyed a wonderful July. Kudos to you for taking time for yourself and for nourishing your body! Well done!👍🏽 1y

I am just being really burned out lately. School is taking a lot more out of me than I had anticipated. That and I have some emotional/personal/health things going on that have thrown me for a loop (I am “okay“ in the broad sense of things)...

So I know more self-care is really what would be best but... I feel I might retreat and If I make a bingo ... I might just feel “bad“ that I didn't try to complete it

#SelfCareBingo #SelfCareIsNotSelfish

DaveGreen7777 Sorry your burnt out right now. 😔 Hope you feel much better soon! 1y
ShyBookOwl I know the feeling. Maybe one of your self care bingo squares can be "take it easy on yourself" and u can save it until the very end, so even if u don't "finish," u can x that one off by not beating yourself up about it ? 1y
ShyBookOwl (Also note that I don't exactly know what the self care bingo rules are, but I hope the spirit of my above msg helps even if it wouldn't technically work lol) 1y

alisiakae Saying no to making a bingo sheet for august is fulfilling part of your July bingo sheet. I can relate to how you are felling right now 💞, hang in there! 1y
alisiakae @ShyBookOwl @ElizaMarie is the one that creates the monthly bingo sheets, what I think she means is that she needs to take a break from hosting the monthly #selfcarebingo challenge. ☺️ 1y
ShyBookOwl @4thhouseontheleft ohhhh! Well then by all means, yes! Take that break. 1y
TheAromaofBooks Sometimes you just need some time to get things sorted!! Hopefully you are able to find some balance soon. ❤ 1y
OriginalCyn620 By all means, take a break if you feel that‘s best. You gotta take care of you first and foremost! Hope the break is just what you need to recharge and regroup! 💕 1y
ElizaMarie @DaveGreen7777 Thanks. I am just in a place that I am not going to plan for anything and just try to work on making sure I have moments that make me happy. 1y
ElizaMarie @ShyBookOwl -- Awe thanks! I just couldn't think of anything that I could fill a bingo on. But I do plan on posting things that make me happy every week or so... To see if that is helpful in showing gratitude! 1y
ElizaMarie @ShyBookOwl Ha! There are no real rules. I had been posting a “self-care“ bingo every month in hopes to help others (and myself) engage in self-care. Sometimes I do better when there is a little “competition“ element in it or some “structure“ so that's why I had created it. I didn't find it in me today to “create“ one but that doesn't mean I don't plan on engaging in self-care. 1y
ElizaMarie @4thhouseontheleft YES!! Exactly! I had one that said, “say no!“. I am doing good overall, just so much on my plate right now. 1y
ElizaMarie @4thhouseontheleft @ShyBookOwl exactly what I meant :) 1y
ElizaMarie @TheAromaofBooks I just have so much “planning“ to do this month that I am opting out of anything extra in the planning stages. Also going to take a break from #BookSpinBingo -- I think I had initially mentioned I was participating but.. I am just gonna focus on finishing some of the books I have going right now. (ha I say that but you know I am going to mood read) 1y
ElizaMarie @OriginalCyn620 Thanks! I do plan on engaging in self-care... just no Bingo this month. Thank you for your kindness :) 1y
TheAromaofBooks That's totally fair!! Frequently, making all the decisions is way harder than actually implementing the plan!! Good luck!! 1y
ElizaMarie @TheAromaofBooks Ha, yes! My brain is shot for decisions 1y

ElizaMarie @OriginalCyn620 and @Cheshirecat913 - I have always wanted a hammock, I moved from south Texas and rarely (heat-wise) felt comfortable to lay around outside. Here (VT) it's perfect! If anything is a little chilly but I have my space heater JuJuB who insists on laying with me. 1y
ElizaMarie @wanderinglynn - Awe thank you! He thinks he is such a tiny little lapdog (edited) 1y

Binge : I‘ve been watching The Librarians and I watched 3 Teagarden movies. I love Candace Bure.
Yoga : I have started chair yoga - it‘s not easy
Pictures : I‘ve taken lots of pics this week of cats (I‘m watching her cats while she‘s on vacation)

I‘m very grateful to Eliza for setting up these bingos each month. Thank you!

ElizaMarie Awe. I love this! I love the picture of your kitty. Also, congrats on working on chair ygoa! Super proud of you for taking that step! You are amazing! 1y
jb72 @ElizaMarie Pumpkin and Baby go back to their mom (my daughter Noelle) tomorrow. Also I‘ve done chair yoga three days in a row! 1y
ElizaMarie @jb72 Ooo that's awesome (the yoga streak!) 1y
