Think of Soul-care & Self-care like your ride or die besties, and take them with you everywhere!
Soul-care = the act of practicing & doing things that help/benefit the soul/spirit
Self-care = many things, therefore the ways to practice self-care are many, and relative to each individual based on their lifestyle and needs
Soul-care or caring for our soul is a result of how we practice our self-care, when we honor care and love ourselves we live more in gratitude love peace & happiness
Sharing a favorite Soul-care manifesto, that sums up how I feel about Soul-care and it's importance in our lives.
Soul Care by Kelly Rae Roberts
I believe soul care means SILENCING THE NOISE, hearing the whispers of my own soul, tending to my body with care, and NOURISHING THE INNER LANDSCAPE OF MY HEART.
I promise... to acknowledge the wisdom that resides within, honoring my highest, wisest self with kindness, integrity, and trust.
I promise... to honor the divinity and GIFT of my body & treat it kindl with compassion.
to devote time & energy to my soul work: forgiveness, gratitude, healing and learning to love & own my story.
I will.. SURRENDER what no longer serves me and pursue only what delights my spirit & brings joy.
I will breathe in the divinity of everything with a SENSE OF AWAKENING and trust.
Here's a sample list of self-care ideas:
social media detox
going to a doctor
taking a bath
seeing a friend
using a babysitter
buying a treat
asking for help
going out to eat
listening to a podcast

7 ways to practice Soul-care
Set daily intentions
Honor your boundaries
Let go of control
Connect with nature
I'm a total Self-care advocate & Self-love warrior with a foundation rooted in Soul-care, I've spent many years letting go of all the things that no longer serve me, and still struggle with letting go of the things I no longer need in my life.
Daily Soul-care & Self-care habits,routines, and practices don't solve all our problems or make life perfect, but what they do, do for us, is invaluable and worth the effort it takes to make sure we take time to take care of ourselves, mind body soul/spirit .
As Kelly says in her manifesto....
Silence the noise
Listen to the whispers of your soul
Tend to your body with care
Nourish the inner landscape of your heart
With love & light
Conscious Positive Living
