    1. Look at your completed Self-Care Worksheet for ideas
    2. Review your Wellness Questionnaire and anywhere you have answered No, use that section as a starting point for completing steps 3 – 5.
    3. Select 1 to 7 different places where you can begin to make one small self-care change. 
    4. Be honest with yourself. Pick an activity that you are sincerely willing to try, even if it sounds strange to you. For example:

      • After work, I will not turn on the TV as soon as I walk in the door, I will do two minutes of deep breathing exercises.
      • I will park one extra block away.
    5. Commit to a starting date - For example:

      • By September 30, each day after work, I will not turn on the TV as soon as I walk in the door, I will do two minutes of deep breathing exercises.
      • By October 15, I will park one extra block away and increase my participation.
