Feel like crawling your way through Struggle Town by the end of the week, telling literally anyone who would listen how badly you need the weekend?
Find yourself knocked down with serious cases of CBF and constantly bailing on the plans you had lined up with friends for weeks in advance, just to curl up in bed with Netflix and a block of Dairy Milk?
From my own experience, I'm guessing that about the last things you feel like doing right now - no matter how much good you know it would do you, would be to go for a run, then follow it up with a good stretch and a green smoothie.
That's why I'm going to tell you to screw that for a joke, and start with what's right for you right now.
Don't go thinking that this is a free pass to binge on shitty TV, popcorn and beers for the next few days, only to crawl back to work on Monday morning feeling exactly as crappy as you did this morning.
Consider this a loving, but long overdue biker-boot up the butt to spend the weekend getting down and dirty with some coloured pens, REALLY get to know what Self-Care feels like for you.
Besides, what better time than right now to sit down, really get to know what's going to work for you, and sort your shit out?
☠ No more over committing to plans you know you're bound to flake on.
☠ No more stressing over what top goes with which jeans, and where the crap did you leave your shoes when you stumbled in the door from after work drinks last night?
☠ No more schlupping around the house in ripped up hoodies your ex-before-last left behind when you got sick and tired of his shit.
☠ No more listening to Negative Nancy's droning on about the shit they're never going to act on and feeling your soul drain away with every. single. word. they. say.
☠ No more blaming the world for everything that's ever held you back and killed your dreams.

"Real Self Care is about REALLY listening into your body, and doing whatever it is that makes YOU feel good.
It's not about forcing yourself to go for a run if your really HATE running, or glugging down massive cups of green juice if the idea of kale makes you want to hurl.
Real Self Care is about creating healthy boundaries, and protecting your energy so that you are able to create, and live, and support those you love...."
