Self-Care & Resiliency

Self-Care & Resiliency

In a world spinning in ways that can feel out of control, it’s crucial to stay empowered…even in small ways.

In a world that is spinning in ways that can feel out of control, it’s crucial to stay empowered…even in small ways.

Joanne MacInnis RN, President of Aberdeen, proposes we all take a Daily Self-Care Inventory. We can’t know how to help ourselves until we reflect on where we are.

Start by asking yourself three questions:

  1. How is my body today?
  2. How is my brain working today?
  3. What am I feeling?

Discomfort.

Discomfort.

We are all coping with it physically, emotionally… in every way. What worked well last week (let’s do that again), and what didn’t go so well? Build in something to improve YOUR quality of life.

Good self-care is all your own doing. Become the best caregiver to YOURSELF. Caregivers are great at caring for others… and we end up at the bottom of the list.

This is a time to remember that we have a responsibility to ourselves.

We’ve been given a body, mind, and spirit, and we need to be taking care of those components of ourselves – our whole self – so that we can serve others.

Find your joy.

Find your Joy.

Look for four things every day that are life-affirming and bring you joy. They can be inside, outside, or don’t have to be “things” at all. Maybe it’s the feeling of the sun on your face, a hot cup of coffee with *just* the right amount of milk and sugar, your favorite reading chair, and birds chirping in a nearby tree.

Now is the time to make a change. Download your free Self-Care Inventory Checklist today!
