When I get overwhelmed, it's usually sort of kicked off by a sense that I have been lazy/not accomplished anything. Which is never true, but y'know.

Anyway, when it's been a day where I've been barely able to function, I make a really strong effort to get at least one small thing done. I do a sink-full of dishes, or fold a load of laundry, and then I can look at something concrete and say "I did that today."

In the past several months I've started keeping a notebook on my desk where I write down a list of things I want to get done during the day, and then add on as the day goes along other off-list things that I do, too. I put on things like eating as well as things like filling out tax forms. It helps to be able to just move things I didn't do one day down into the next day's list, and it helps to look at a list at the end of the day and see that I was doing stuff, even if only taking care of myself.

About Jen

A 20-something fat, queer woman of colour living in Australia.

Reading: Fond of speculative and YA fiction, social justice theory in various forms. Would love to see more rounded fat/queer/female/of colour (and multiples of the above) characters in fiction.

Writing: Sometimes blogs at Hoyden About Town, dabbles in fiction now and then, hoping to find her creativity again.

Watching: Fond of sci-fi/fantasy television, with a strange weakness for cop shows. Would love to see more rounded fat/queer/female/of colour (and multiples of the above) characters on television.
