Here are my top 5 tips for offering yourself Self care. We will discuss and practice techniques for all of these areas at the Slice of Self Care workshop Saturday September 1 from 1pm - 4.30pm st the Upper Sturt Soldiers Memorial Hall.
1. Plan and prioritise ….We are all busy. Self Care doesn’t happen by accident.
2. Build positive emotions. Cultivate attitudes of friendliness, compassion, gratitude and kindness.
3. Take care of your body/mind. Exercise, eat well, drink water, practice mindfulness, laugh often.
4. Develop healthy resilience. Notice how you bounce back after a bad day. Accept that there will be challenges and set backs. Acknowledge difficult emotions and thoughts without getting caught up in them.
5. Create meaning. What gives your life purpose? How can you contribute to the benefit of others? What can you share from your Self?
