Healing Like A Hiromu Arakawa Character: a Self Care Guide

  • Start taking care of a living thing. You can put a plant by your window, volunteer at the community garden or local animal shelter. This will help you realize that other lives depend on you just like you depend on them!
  • Learn. If something makes you excited, find out more about it. Teach yourself new skills! Cultivate a love for learning and make your local library a second home. Wikipedia and documentaries are great but nothing feels quite as homey as sitting in a back table behind a stack of books with tea just staring in awe of how much there really is to know!!
  • DO SOME HARD LABOR! Get out there and use your hands (literally or just metaphorically) to heal. Clean up your environment, learn a craft, or volunteer if you want to get out on the field.
  • But remember SELF SACRIFICE IS MEANINGLESS. Working yourself to the point of exhaustion won’t help anyone. 
  • Hang out with cute animals! Cats, pigs, horses, the odd funky lizard. Spending time with animals can calm you down and keep you centered!
  • Run if you must to survive.” Getting out of a toxic situation or leaving behind things that make you depressed is okay! Running with no purpose can be self-destructive but sometimes a fresh start is necessary so always evaluate if the people around you and the experiences you are having are helping you grow!
  • Connect with others! No matter what you think you are not alone. Look at your life and see the people who are there for you. You have a network, just look. 
  • Forget Equivalent Exchange!! Remember the 10:11 rule! For every ten you are given, you give eleven back. Make every place you go better and help people who need it. Just try not to say yes to everything and get overloaded!!
  • EAT! Look up recipes and cook something fresh for yourself, even if it’s only once in a while. We wrap eating in so much guilt and weirdness but you gotta eat. Over-the-top reactions to super good food is optional but pretty gratifying, in all honesty.
