Learning the Art of Self-Care

On the journey to wholeness through self-care and learning to love and respect yourself, it is important to take good care of yourself in many different aspects when it comes to mind-body health & wellness.

The bottom line includes a daily routine of getting proper rest, eating healthy food, and movement that suits your personality. Add to this taking good care of your body, your teeth, hair, skin. It is nourishing to choose colors that you like for your clothing and home furnishings. Next, you need stimulation to be personally challenged to grow and have an interest in life. You also need people with whom to be close emotionally and with whom to share your journey. You need things to do that bring you pleasure and fun.

Finally, you need a way to connect to yourself, such as daily meditation and contemplation.

A well-nourished self meets life "filled up". You have more energy to participate and give, to meet your challenges, and to do the inner work and self-healing required to have high self-esteem, good relationships, and overall enjoy your life to its fullest.
