Holistic Self-Care Activities

Holistic self-care activities

Self-care simply means taking care of yourself. 


Holistic self-care activities are those things that you do to take care of your entire being - mind, body, and spirit.


This concept of self-care is not an anti-Christian concept because there are several scriptures that urge us to take care of ourselves like You shall love your neighbor as you love yourself. (Mark 12:31)


Therefore engage in some of the following holistic self-care activities as a means of loving yourself so that you can also love your neighbors well.




Physical Self-Care Activities
Take several deep breaths at an appointed time each hour
Give yourself a manicure or a pedicure
Engage in aerobic exercises


Mental Self-Care Activities
Meditate on affirming Bible verses like I can do all things through Jesus Christ Who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)  
Write down your goals and visualize your success
Think about your blessings and be grateful for them


Spiritual Self-Care Activities
Pray
Read your Bible
Sing Christian praise songs


Emotional Self-Care Activities
Wear your favorite clothes
Pet your pet
Write down the things you like about yourself and include those mentioned in the Bible like I am God's Masterpiece created in Christ to do good works which God prepared for me. (Adapted Ephesians 2:10)
