It’s that time of year where I can get a little bit stressed. The semester has started, deadlines are coming up, and the transition into the fall brings new challenges and responsibilities. So in order to keep going, I need a bit of self care. So why not geekify it?
Make Time for Your Geeky Favorites
Probably one of the simplest things you can do is to take some time for your favorite geeky things, whether it’s watching your favorite TV show or playing your favorite game. Taking the time to do something you know you’ll enjoy can be incredibly reinvigorating.
Combine Your Current Self Care and Geek Favorites
There are certain things that get labeled as self care often, like baths. If there is a particularly “standard” self care activity you enjoy, you can find ways to geek it up with some of your geeky favorites. A fandom themed bath bomb would be a fun addition to a bath for example.
Motivate Some Self Care with Geeky Rewards
I am an advocate that self care is not always just treating yourself, and that sometimes self care is not glamorous and is just taking a shower and going to the gym. What you can do to motivate yourself to do the less glamorous self care items is giving yourself a geeky reward. Take doing laundry. By doing laundry you can change into your favorite geeky t-shirt that’s warm out of the drier. Something as simple as that can be very gratifying.
