I had to accept, my doctor couldn’t really help me. Either I had to learn to live with it or learn how to help myself. I chose the latter. Through trial and error, I learned the art of self-care. The definition of self-care is any intentional action you take to care for your physical, mental, and emotional health. For today’s post, I will be talking about the day-to-day decisions I make regarding physical self-care.

Recently I started using the Health Storylines app forphysical self-care, but I quickly realized I could use it for emotional self-care as well. I was super excited to start using the My Journal tool. I love that it gives me a topic to choose from or I can just write my own. The options on this app seem endless! I really am enjoying using theDaily Moods tool too, I can look back and see if anything may have triggered my mood for that day and why.” – The Unbroken Smile

I’ve been reading a number of articles addressing the self-care movement and I’ve been a little disheartened when the topic is painted as a bad thing, self-ish or anti-God. We all have a responsibility to decipher the good sources of information from the bad but you don’t throw out the baby with the bath water, as the old saying goes.
As a Christian I don’t see the self-care movement as an attack on my faith. I believe my Lord is very concerned with my mental and physical well-being but He’s more concerned with the spiritual. So spiritual self-care needs to be our foundation.” – Grace is Sufficient
