take a long bath or
a longer shower,
a shorter time on email,
or nap for an hour

have a sweet chat with a dear friend
a long shavasana that never ends
a steady attention during an entire meal
book a massage you know will heal you

start weekly acupuncture or reflexology
start practicing energy medicine; or learn your neurology
try a new yoga class that lights you up
write interview questions for your parent(s) and find out where you came from

or just go to bed early, no phone, no social media
and wake up with the sun and see how that makes you feel.
