Default What do you do to take care of you?

I have someone I love very much that is an addict and has just come home from prison. She will be in parole mandated classes, but she already knows from the therapy what she needs to do to stay clean. She had to go through a pretty horrific rock bottom experience whIle she was incarcerated, but no she doing well.

Now I'm kinda of re-evaluating what I need to do to take better care of me. I know about Nar-Anon, and now I'm not going to visitation on Saturday morning it's going to be much easier to get into a group. I'm working to get into the gym again and eat better, both are struggles at the moment, but I have learned the six weeks rule enough times to have hope. When I'm not up running, I'm trying to just go walk. I have gone through some therapy as well just to better deal with the stress of a close parent with cancer. I really, really hate to start doing them, but I found that cleaning and cooking both relax me. Lol.

I was just wondering what others do to take care of themselves?
