Caring for ourselves is important if we want to feel happy and healthy. And when we feel good, it is much easier to think of others and provide support, love and compassionate-kindness.
The difference between regular self-care and SPIRITUAL self-care is our INTENTION.
Our intention to look after ourselves is not just for our individual self. Here we are caring for ourselves in a way that increases our ability to connect deeply within our community and environment. So our motivation of self-care may be something along these lines:
“My spiritual self-care allows me to be of the most benefit to myself, to others and the environment.”
Wow! Doesn’t that sound like a wonderful way to self-care! Now everyone is benefiting from our pleasant feelings of body and mind.
