3. Go for a walk
4. Tell myself the loving words I want to hear from others.
5. Pat an animal
6. Practice diaphragmatic breathing
7. Watch the sunrise/set
8. Attend a caring support
9. Reflect on my positive qualities: "I am..."
10. Write in a journal
11. Play an instrument
12. Attend a favourite athletic event
13. Make myself a nutritious meal
14. Work in your garden
15. Sing
16. Draw a picture
17. Relax outside
18. Reward myself with a special gift I can afford
19. Practice the art of forgiveness
