Strategies of Self-Care

Deborah O. Day, Psy.D - Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Most people have a limit on how much stress, suffering, and sadness they can tolerate; therefore, pleasant, soothing, and joyful energy is needed on a consistent basis in order to thwart negativity, thereby producing feelings of renewal.  Unfortunately, a one-size-fits-all approach is unavailable. Successful education, integration, sustenance, and adoption of individualized self-caring practices come from knowing yourself, while restricting the common practice of comparing oneself to others. Further, self-care can be identified as a wide variety of preventative and protective factors.  John Duffy, Ph.D, a clinical psychologist, defined self-care as "attending to your own needs such that you are content, focused, motivated, and 'on your game.'"

The energy allotted in giving of oneself to others becomes impaired when ones' own sense of prioritizing their own needs and wants has become jeopardized.  Wondering if you're doing a decent job of taking care of yourself - or how your self-care strategies could be improved?  Review the following, and reflect on your practices:

1. Self-caring is a number of diverse and variable identified activities that have the potential to help the individual feel their best.

2. Self-caring is thoughtfully scheduled and planned out.

3. Self-caring starts and ends at anytime, and can happen anywhere.

4. Genuine self-care consists of acknowledging that your physical, emotional, psychological, and relational well-being are intertwined, interactive, and interdependent.

5. Self-care helps one preserve boundaries and removes the sources that drain one from their full potential.

6. Continuously and realistically indulge in a self-care inventory and consider making adjustments as needed.

7. Surround yourself with people that can teach your something.

8. Take into consideration that 'quality' always supersedes 'quantity' when it comes to self-care.

9. Remember that self-care is a necessity that is non-negotiable in achieving the balance and happiness of fulfilled living.
