Loving Yourself Well with Self Care

Self-care is the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress. While there are lists of ideas on the internet about how to practice self-care, not all apply to each individual.  In fact, what renews you probably isn’t what renews someone else.  Self-care isn’t just a whim of an activity to take your mind away from stressors; it’s a thought-out plan that requires an understanding of yourself. What brings you joy? What activity energizes your brain and body? What sounds fun to YOU?

Sometimes it is hard for a woman facing sexual betrayal to really take stock of what she needs.  With her world unsteady, it’s difficult to focus on figuring out self-care options.  Today’s post is about making that decision a little easier.  Taking a moment to identify what gestures make you feel love can help you navigate a path to self-care.  Gary Chapman’s The Five Love Languages is a good place to start for understanding how to best care for yourself. (If you aren’t familiar with your Love Language, take the quiz.)

Now that you know how you best experience love, use the infographic to design a self-care plan.  Here’s to not only taking care of yourself, but loving yourself well while you do it!
