7 Staples of Self-Care
I will undoubtedly place scripture at the top of this list. There is power in the living word of God for those aware and those unaware. We can do all things in Christ who strengthens us. The most effective and critical to understand and maintain this relationship with God is through his living word. Do you need healing? Find scriptures in the word. Do you need deliverance? I'd like you to please find scripture about salvation in the word. Do you need strength or peace of mind? Find scripture about these topics in the word. Speak these scriptures over yourself and experience the fullness of faithfulness God brings us. All of us.
Prayer Time- We need to relax and spend time with God. Even if it's for 15-30 min. a day, through this intimate prayer time, we are rejuvenating ourselves inwardly so we have spiritual provision to step out outwardly. We all have places to get to daily, and we pray for the following chapters in our lives. The enemy tries to keep our schedules so busy we cannot set aside daily alone time with God. This is how HE moves mountains in our lives, through our faith and setting aside time. Part of this action is doing nothing but spending quality time with God(I take my time reading my Bible and praying as I am filled with HIS glory). You'll be surprised how quickly your obstacles become more apparent, and your schedule is less hectic than before. When we set time aside to pray, we make time for cellular renewal.
Journaling- We journal when we freely commit to openness and drop control. I'd recommend doing this at least once a week. We can pray, speak, and write down our substantial or tangible things for ourselves. If your spirit is not letting you write, say, and pray your thoughts quickly, do not write them down. Only deep down what you know to be true through peace. I enjoy writing prayers or love letters to God about where I'm with things and what I want to see moving forward. It's a beautiful release of emotions and clarity to the soul.
Quality Sleep- This is the hardest one for me! I end up going to bed late and am unable to sleep in. Lack of sleep depletes our day and can make us super unproductive. Over time I feel under the weather due to my lack of sleep. If you have children, getting peaceful lengths of time for quality rest is more arduous. Natural supplements and sleepy time teas can help unwind from the day and prepare for proper quality sleep.
Stretching- It's interesting how our muscles receive a workout, and we improve our posture through stretching. There are so many benefits to pulling. We improve our performance in physical activities, increase muscle blood flow, enable muscles to work most effectively, decrease the risk of injuries, and reduce inflammation. These are just several benefits.
Clean eating- When we strive to eat pure, wholesome nutrients with significant vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. Our bodies improve heart, and brain health, immune support, and not to mention weight management. What we place into our bodies matters, and we should try our best to keep wise choices available to us as much as possible. Grabbing a green drink now!!
Skincare- We all know the largest organ of our bodies is our skin. The aesthetics industry has shown the benefits of using quality ingredients and formulations for our skin. When we have good skincare routines and are committed to staying on top of this routine, we are setting ourselves up for success. Glowing radiant skin, here we come!
