There are many ways to engage in self-care. Self-care is essential to practice self-love, which is how anyone can find true happiness. There are many simple ways to engage in self-care that do not include spending money or even too much time. Sometimes there are misconceptions that the only way to practice self-care is to go on a trip to the shopping mall or getting a spa treatment. This is fine in some aspects and in moderation, there are many hidden gems that create the most happiness within through the body, mind, and soul.
One of the most important ways to practice self-care is sleep. Getting a good night’s rest is crucial to having a successful day. Nourishing the body with what it needs to sustain its healthy composure is extremely important. If someone is abusing substances it’s likely the body has had an influx of harmful toxins entering the body. Eliminating these toxins is the best way to get back on the road to good health. This combined with allowing the body to move freely is self-care. Walking outside, going on a hike, and any kind of exercise would be an example of this.
Over the years, it’s easy to fall into bad habits of holding things inside, and using substances to numb feelings. While in treatment, it should be a safe environment for licensed doctors and counselors. This provides an opportunity to get therapy for what people had been ignoring and using it as ammunition for self-sabotage. Allowing patients to process these sometimes painful memories and thoughts give freedom to move forward. Sometimes patients need to be reminded that the mind can justify things that aren’t productive.
Being spiritually fit is more important than people might think. It can be hard to believe in something that isn’t physically there as proof. However, when people can sit in silence, or meditation and ask for guidance, life becomes more clear. It’s as if, a person can let go of making all the decisions. Letting go of the control and letting a higher power take control. This is liberating and opens the doors to true happiness and self-love. When there is self-love there will be less self-destructive behavior.
