Taking care of ourselves involves a lot more than taking our vitamins, supplements and working out; doing all of that is fabulous. We have to consider, that our bodies are just one aspect of our total wellbeing.
Self care entails a harmonious practice that engages the mind, body and soul. Often our emotional and mental wellbeing can have a significant impact on our physical wellbeing.
Some of us take great care of our bodies, but pay little attention to our feelings, our stress level, or the unconstructive self talk we engage in daily; all just as dangerous as the toxins found in our food and environment. Some of us, (raising my hand sheepishly) take great care of our mental and emotional wellbeing, reading books, listening to inspiring audios, attending seminars, meditating, being with and expressing our emotions in healthy ways but pay little attention to our bodies' signals and pleas for help.
In my own journey, I am persistently communing with All That Is Divine. I ask for guidance into creating harmony in my own life and feel deep gratitude for the opportunity to share the blessings with the lives of those I serve.
The following questions are food for thought, or nourishment for the soul. Your answers will offer insight that may be essential to include on your-self care practice.
The last question is a great component for self-reverence. You can start by constructing a personal altar, it will be the container to hold space to connect with the Sacred Being that is you.
