Sunday Self~Care Tips

Sunday isn’t the only day for Self-Care; this is actually something you should be practicing daily. There are weeks I often forget this, and my mind, body, & spirit will become weary.

So let’s look at some ways you can start practicing self-care! 👇🏾

✴️Take Care Of Your Spirit:
Prayer and Meditation often go hand in hand; I usually do this every morning 🌅 reading scriptures and meditating on His word! This is also an excellent time to practice mantras and do a little journaling.

✴️Take A Social Media Break:
I’m usually on social media for business, but often there are times that I will take a break and shut my phone 📱 off for a few hours! Trust me; you’re not missing anything! This gives you a chance to read 📖 or be creative.

✴️Take Care Of Your Body:
🗣LISTEN TO YOUR BODY; if you are not sleeping, running on E, you need to rest 🛌!
Not sleeping can cause all kinds of problems; your body wasn’t meant to do it all! Set boundaries with yourself and say NO! And don’t forget to make the necessary doctor appointments!

✴️Take A Break If You Need To:
If you want to sleep all day, do it! If you want to curl up with a good book and not fold the laundry, it’s ok! Taking a break can actually be really helpful; it gives you a chance to recharge and refresh! Remember, let go of the guilt over taking care of yourself! (Go listen to Friday’s Podcast Episode about this topic)

👉🏾 It’s essential to your well-being that you consistently take the time, even in small and simple ways, to support and care for yourself.

What are some ways you practice Self-Care? How often do you get around to doing so?

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others. I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community. I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. I’m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future.
