Self Care In This Time of Unrest

There are so many mixed emotions swirling around right now.

It seems like every time I turn on the TV or look at the news or social media on my phone, people are having ‘one-sided’ conversations about so many things. There may be two people there but they are not listening to each other.

I get that people are stressed and upset but that is no excuse to not treat people fairly or to not listen to others with an open mind. 

–Do we reopen or stay at home?

–Do we go to church or stay home?

–Do we speak up for those who feel like they do not have a voice?

–Do we speak up for those whose voice is being taken away?

–Do we speak up for ourselves?

–Do you teach your children to be tolerant of others and their opinions?

What do you do if you are caught in one of these discussions where you don’t agree with the other person’s viewpoint? Do you voice your opinion or do you keep quiet? What do you do if the other person doesn’t agree with your viewpoint?

What do you do when you are alone following one of these encounters?  Have you developed some healthy ways to decompress?  Self care in this day of unrest is even more important.

If you need some ideas,  our readers have put together an All About ‘Me’ Time activity list that you can find on our Resource Page.

Pick one thing to focus on this week.  Enjoy!
