Self Care


Self Care March 8

I don’t precisely know what you need to do to take care of yourself. But I know you can figure it out.
—Beyond Codependency

Rest when you’re tired.

Take a drink of cold water when you’re thirsty.

Call a friend when you’re lonely.

Ask God to help when you feel overwhelmed.

Many of us have learned how to deprive and neglect ourselves. Many of us have learned to push ourselves hard, when the problem is that were already pushed too hard.

Many of us are afraid the work wont get done if we rest when were tired. The work will get done; it will be done better than work that emerges from tiredness of soul and spirit. Nurtured, nourished people, who love themselves and care for themselves, are the delight of the Universe.

They are well timed, efficient, and Divinely led.

Today, I will practice loving self-care.

    Self care is the most crucial for anyone. Doesn’t matter where they are in life. It is showing yourself you are worth it. I found a website that is directed towards social workers and the importance of self care but I found the tools there to be universal.

    I bookmarked this one. I found the tools exceptionally useful.
