Check in with a friend/family member
With my head down focused on all of the things that need my attention, I was heading into a spiral. A co-worker called just to check how I was holding up. That phone call made a world of difference and pulled me away from my to-do list and forced me to ask "does this REALLY need to get done today or can it wait until tomorrow?" Realizing it could wait until tomorrow, I got my kids and dog ready and headed outside for a walk. That phone call was important. Check in with friends and family. We are all dealing with our own struggles and taking time to chat with a friend might make the difference in their day.
