We asked our leadership honorees to share their self-care routines.
Everything begins from within. My spirit and soul need to be in the right space. My Faith in Christ and how I live that out is the beginning of my self-care. I incorporate prayer, journaling, and time with God, whether walking while meditating on a principle or scripture that speaks to me or listening to a song or message that speaks to me. When I am living out the practices of my Faith, I am able to connect with others in a more dynamic way, and it keeps me in tune with what my body needs as well as my mental health. As a woman of a certain age, prioritizing what I say “Yes” to and having healthy boundaries for my personal and professional commitments is an important practice. I always say having healthy boundaries is not a separation but an education in how to communicate and build relationships with you.
