We wish 'Care Self' had a better ring, and was grammatically correct, since ‘Care’ is the word we like to emphasize as we ponder the term. Care evokes softness, kindness, concern, and consideration. When we turn Care towards ourselves, we are able to deepen our relationship to our humanness. This is a radical act.
We see Self Care as a critical element to cultivating the strength and fortitude to show up to the injustices, pain and challenges of our world.
How we take care of ourselves in times of insecurity and destabilization often reflects our deepest values and beliefs, and is an opportunity to support the world we want to see come into being.
Ways we Self Care:
Notice if we are feeling rushed
Question and dissolve our toxic thoughts
Enjoy our food
Cultivate supportive relationships
Dress like we mean it
Sleep like we mean it
Laugh like we mean it
