You’ve got a keen eye for paying attention to detail, and not many things slip past your gaze. You’ve honed in on the habits that work for you, and are fine keeping them the way they are. You care about those around you and work well with others. However, you tend to prefer watching from the sidelines to diving into the middle of the game.
At work: You’re excellent at noticing what others might miss, and you’re a pro at coming up with solutions that work best for everyone. If a colleague needs someone to look over their work, they’ll most likely come to you — your advice is unfailingly valuable.
With friends: You enjoy planning something special with your crew every once in a while, and making sure it’s as fabulous as it can be. Even if you don’t go out partying every day, your kind nature does not go unnoticed. You might be surprised by how many people consider you a friend!
At home: You might be slower to establish connections than others, but that means when they form, they’re incredibly meaningful. When you find the right person for you, you’ll click with them like no one else. While you might not loudly express your affection for your family all the time, they know you care through your quieter acts of love.
Super Self Care
Your superpower is your eye for detail. But are you looking at what you need to be happy? If your routine and habits are no longer working for you, change them! Add a new hobby to your routine or pick out a new book to read. A small change in your day can have a big impact on your mood.
Check in with your personal “bill of rights” to make sure that you’re enforcing the boundaries that you need to feel your best. Are you ignoring times when someone has crossed a line? Do you need to come up with some new boundaries at work or with friends? Also assess if there are toxic people in your circle that you need to take some space from. Are there people you’re interacting with regularly that do not make you feel fan-fucking-tastic when you leave their presence? If so, cut them out of your daily life. And I don’t mean by ghosting. Be kind and genuine. Kindness is super underrated and being kind even to people you no longer want in your life is just the right thing to do. But no one toxic deserves a place in your group chat.
Pensive moods come easily to you and there is much power to be found in self-reflection. Daily journaling is an excellent tool for self-care, so get those notebooks and pens ready! Writing what’s in your mind out on paper can help you process how you’re feeling and encourage you to focus on the positive. It also helps keep you out of brooding territory. Take a stab at writing about your day just before bed and you’ll get out any thoughts that will keep you from getting a good night’s sleep.
Strategies for Stressful Times
Harness your organizational powers to de-stress. Maybe this means decluttering your bedroom to make it feel like more of the sanctuary you need and deserve; maybe this means making some pro/con lists about a situation that is causing stress in your life to better assess how you should approach it.
You are the one that says “yes” or “no” to everything in your life. If you’re saying “yes” so much that it’s becoming detrimental to you, you need to remember your obligation to yourself. Making plans with yourself IS making plans. There are ways to say “no” with a smile that are positive, professional, and work in your favor—whether it’s at work, with your family/friends, or your significant other.
Be extra aware of your internal dialogue: are you speaking to yourself kindly, or are negative thoughts running the show? Stress can wreak havoc on positive thought patterns. Notice when you’re using words like “always,” “never,” “worst,” “ever,” and other extremes, and start nixing them. Talk to yourself the way you would talk to your best friend.
