Curating a Nourishing Self-Care Practice in 4 Steps

Nourishing self-care isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. It’s a personalised journey of exploration and discovery. Here’s 4 Steps that will help you craft a routine that truly resonates with your unique needs:

1. Become a Keen Observer – Be your own intuitive detective 🙂 

The first step is tuning into your inner innate intelligence and asking what would truly nourish you. You can do this via meditation or get a LiberatingTouch Facilitator to guide you through the process. Next, notice how your body, mind, and spirit respond throughout the day. What activities leave you feeling energised and content? When do you feel drained or depleted?  Is it the constant screen time, the daily commute, or the lack of creative outlets? Journaling and/ or taking mindful walks can also help you identify these patterns.

2. Design Your Peace Oasis : 

Once you understand your needs, curate a self-care routine that feels like sanctuary. Schedule dedicated time slots, even if they’re just 15 minutes.  Maybe it’s a morning meditation session to clear your head or an evening bath infused with calming essential oils.  Create a calming environment – dim the lights, diffuse some essential oils, or play music that relaxes you. Or simply focus on your breath – breathing in, breathing out, giving yourself a hug. Self-care rituals are most effective when you remove distractions and allow you time to truly connect with yourself – especially the Illumined Self (the God-Self / True-Self / Great Spirit-Self / Loving-Self) 

3. Embrace the Power of “No”: k N O w

Boundaries are crucial for self-care. Don’t feel obligated to squeeze everything in. Learn to say no to requests that drain your energy and choose to spend some time on activities that replenish your spirit. Self-care isn’t selfish – it’s essential for showing up as your best self for yourself and others.

4. Celebrate the Journey:

Self-care is a lifelong practice, not a destination. There will be days when a 10-minute power nap feels like the ultimate act of love, while other days might call for a full afternoon spent in nature. Be flexible and adjust your routine as needed. The key is to be kind to yourself, and celebrate the small victories along the way. As you nurture these self-care practices, you’ll cultivate a sense of inner peace and well-being that empowers you to embrace life’s challenges and thrive.

I have begun to practise  Self-care on a regular basis. My way is choosing to forgive myself, trust myself, loving me as I am, choosing kindness in everything and most of all experiencing God in all things at all times. I enjoy paying attention to my breath, love flowing in, love flowing out. It’s so loving. 

What’s your Self-care practice? It’s really worth exploring.
