Self-Care is a Way of Life
When I sent my Spring newsletter, Resources* with some ideas for calming during these unprecedented times, I never imagined how our lives would still be impacted heading into the end of the year.
As the holiday season is upon us this year, we know that things are going to look a little (or a Lot) different than usual.  With all of the unknowns, this is a particularly important time to remember that self-care as a way of life will be helpful for Everyone!
I recently read an article entitled Self-Care: What It Really Is and How to Do It Well

Here are some take-aways
  • Self-care is the collection of habits that support and strengthen your mental health and wellbeing.
  • Self-care isn’t something you do every once in a while. It’s a way of life.
  • You can’t be genuinely helpful to others if you don’t make the time to help yourself.
  • Self-care is something everyone can and should do in whatever way makes sense for their life.
  • Self-care will always look a little different for everyone because we’re all as unique as our lives and circumstance. There’s no set formula for self-care. And to some extent, you always have to customize it to the needs and details of your own life.
  • Self-care is neither as mysterious or complex as many of us assume. It simply means fostering healthy habits that support and strengthen your mental health and wellbeing.
Ask yourself:
  • What are some activities I really enjoy for their own sake—just because they’re fun or pleasurable?
  • What are some activities that lead to a genuine sense of accomplishment and mastery?
Practice being gentle with yourself.
If you want to read the entire article:

“To meditate means to go home to yourself. Then you know how to take care of the things that are happening inside you, and you know how to take care of the things that happen around you.”
– Thich Nhat Hanh
