I have been reflecting for some time now on the topic of self care.
When I read in John 10:10, that Jesus came ‘ … that … [we] … might have life, and that … [we] … might have it more abundantly …’, I felt reassured that Jesus’ sacrifice opened the door for growth in the area of self care, which I believe will contribute greatly to living abundantly.
In my reflection, I pondered on the questions below:
- What does self care really mean?
- What does self care look like?
- What are some simple things that I can do to become better at self care?
With the answers that I came up with, as I started to do the simple things, I have learned to celebrate every improvement I make in the area of self care – however small it may appear. If you are like me and also find this topic of interest, I encourage you to reflect on the above questions.
Though the answers to these questions could have some similarities for different people, I believe that there will also be variations in responses, so as you reflect on these questions, I hope that you would also come up with simple ideas to incorporate into your life.
