KEEP A DATE WITH YOURSELF
Assign a specific date and time to treat yourself. Take things easy. Make it a statement that you will not let worries enter your mind during your date with yourself.
BE BOLD ENOUGH TO BREAK THE NORM
Surely there's something you've always wanted to do...something you love, but are afraid others would judge you for. You should do that thing. It's very liberating.
TREAT YOURSELF LIKE A GUEST
Tend to your needs and your well being. Treat yourself!
DON'T BE AFRAID TO SAY "NO"
This is another liberating, and emboldening, step. Learn how to say no to those things that you really don't have room in the day for.
TRY NEW THINGS
This one is pretty straightforward. It speaks for itself. Try new things! The famous writer Henry David Thoreau expressed this message over a century ago: "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." Obviously, he was open to trying new things. You should be, too!
