This might probably be the most important reminder of all, at least that’s what I think. Sometimes we get so stuck in our own heads, and let our inner critic get the best of us, to the point where it can tear us down and make us doubt everything we know to be true. While I am certain a lot of us have friends and loved ones who tell us that they care and love us, sometimes it’s more implied than expressed. So even if it’s not said to you in those words, you are indeed loved. Though maybe we can also use this little reminder to tell our loved ones that we love and care for them once in a while; we don’t know who might really need to hear it.
While working we often sit in the same position for a long time. This is especially true in offices, where it sometimes seems like you are meant to sit still for hours on end, and just do your work. But it is very important to remember to get up, move your body, and stretch at several points during the work day. While we can sit still for a long time, it doesn’t mean that we should. Taking breaks from your work, even just a little one, can really help with productivity as well, and not hinder it.
For those watching different Twitch streams, might know that many streamers allow their audience to remind them to hydrate, but there are also several of them that allow the audience to give them posture check reminders. Which is a prompt to make sure that they’re not sitting hunched over. Some of the streamers I watch have this reminder, and some of them also include the term “No shrimping!”, which so perfectly illustrates the hunched position we often find ourselves in while working at desks.
