자가 관리


What comes to mind when you hear the term “self-care?” Hot tea, bubble baths, and candles? To many, a day to oneself to rejuvenate and unwind sounds like a distant dream. “Someday, I might have the time and  money.” Think about your day today.

Did you brush your teeth this morning? Did you change your clothes or brush your hair? Have that morning cup of coffee? Maybe some breakfast? These are things we do to take care of our health and wellness. When we do these things deliberately with the intention of nurturing and caring for ourselves, we are actively practicing self-care. And it’s just that – a practice. It’s not something that is easy to master or that may always come easily. Sometimes, self-care can be a real challenge. In fact, it can be that thing that you’ve been avoiding, but that you know you need to do like going to the dentist or finally getting something out of the way like filing your taxes.

The truth is, self-care will look different for each and every one of us, and it may also look different each day. So listen to your body, your heart, and mind. What is it that I need to feel rejuvenated, at peace, centered, and balanced? What will help me feel grounded again?

One day, it could be a bubble bath or just a quiet night in with a good book. Other times, I might need a good hour-long conversation connecting with a friend I haven’t seen in ages, or maybe it’s unplugging from social media for a day. Get creative.

Ultimately, self-care is a radical act of self-love. When we take the time to care for and nurture ourselves, we are sending the message that we are worthy, we are valuable, and that we are deserving of care and love. You matter and you deserve your love, affection, and attention just as much as anybody else does, if not more.

When we hear a message long enough, we may start to believe it. This is why the practice of self-care is so crucial in shaping us into the people we want to become. We all have an internal script that plays in our heads and in our hearts, and for some those messages can be downright mean. Practicing self-care transforms that script, dismantles toxic messages, and establishes a more positive, healing message instead. The author Louise Hay once wrote, “Remember, you have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.” By taking care of our needs, we are choosing to dismantle those critical messages and opt for a new one: “I am worthy, I am valued, I deserve love and care.”

In the graphic, you can see a few examples of self-care from the National Resource Center for Reaching Victims

If you’re feeling the heaviness of the world right now and it takes moving mountains to get up and get dressed, know you aren’t alone. Please reach out to someone – a friend, someone you trust, a hotline. Expressing ourselves, feeling the emotions – this is all self-care, too. YWCA Spokane has many different outlets that you can utilize if you need help or are feeling low. Check out our website a www.ywcaspokane.org to learn more.
