Day 24: Nurturing the Whole Self

The one lecture we attended today was on nurturing our whole self. We went over ways to nurture our body, mind, heart and spirit. I tried to leave out ones that I covered in a previous post. So without further ado, here is the list of additional things you can do to nurture yourself:

Body

  • Sleep
  • Eat healthy foods
  • Take a bath
  • Accupuncture
  • Deep Breathing

Mind

Heart

  • Therapy
  • Have a cup of tea
  • Visualization
  • Decrease judgment
  • Self-compassion

Spiritual/Creative Self

  • Writing
  • Photography

We also went over several stress reducers. Things like preparing the night before; prepping your lunch and snacks for the next day, setting out your clothes and anything else you might need at hand first thing in the morning. The best stress reducer we went over was not shopping for clothes with critical teens or skinny friends.
