Your Free Self-Care Toolkit

Are you doing a good job at self-care?

Your Self-Care Toolkit

There are several pathways to self-care, and none of them need be difficult or take a lot of planning: There is no one-size-fits-all choice. Different people have different answers. One person knits, another gets a regular massage. One person schedules romantic dates with his/her partner. Another person runs. I like to walk in the woods close to nature.

Our own self-care practices change over time as our needs, preferences, and life circumstances evolve and change. In my profession, self-care is not a luxury; it is a necessity. It is for you, too.

Below are some ideas from my own self-care tool kit.

I eat health food every day including lots of fruit and vegetables.

I spend time with people I care about and who care for me.

I use relaxation strategies like meditation, mindfulness and tai chi to keep balance in my life.

I get at least 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep, 5 nights each week..

I drink at least 5 glasses of water daily.

I ask for help when I need it.

I spend time in nature at least twice per week.

I have a hobby that I enjoy doing.

I take holidays or frequent breaks from work.

I listen to music watch movies or read content that gives me positive feelings.

I practise deep breathing to anchor myself at least three times during the day.

I bring humour and laughter into my day.

I let go of things I cannot change.

I am kind and forgive myself when I make mistakes.

I keep in touch with my values and what really matters to me.

I go to a counsellor/psychotherapist when I have mental or emotional concerns.

Self-care works best when it is approached with a sense of curiosity, awareness, and open-mindedness. As we do this, we become better and better at keeping our lives and selves running smoothly; we become skilled mechanics in the workings of our own well-being.

Sharing your feelings and thoughts in a non-judgmental and compassionate setting I can help you make positive changes in your life by phoning Cabin Counselling on 087 6203371 to make an appointment.
