10 Commandments for Un-Well Beings


  • Thou shalt not be perfect or even try to be. Realistic expectations only!
  • Thou shalt not try to be all things to all people. Save some time for yourself.
  • Thou shalt leave things un-done sometimes
  • Thou shalt not spread thyself too thin.
  • Thou shalt learn to say, "No". You can say, "No", gently and with respect
  • Thou shalt make time for thine own self and thy support network. Supported people live longer and happier lives.
  • Thou shalt switch off and do nothing - yes, nothing - regularly
  • Thou shalt be boring, untidy, inelegant and unattractive sometimes - it's okay.
  • Thou shalt not feel guilty!
  • Thou shalt not be thine own worst enemy. Be kind, gentle and loving towards thyself.
