I’ve always viewed healing as a very introspective. But as I work on healing myself, I wanted to share some tips that I’ve found very helpful.
- Understanding that healing is a process, not a competition
Often I compete with myself- to be the best version of myself, to finish the fastest I can. But healing is not like that. Healing, has good days, and harder days, but both are necessary to truly heal. So take time with this.
- Do things you enjoy
Often when I feel sad, I don’t want to do really anything. But I’ve realized that doing things I enjoy help me to heal. For example, treat yourself to dinner or enjoy some quality alone time. Tonight, I’m going to wash my hair, do a protein treatment, deep condition and braid it. Doing my hair is always a stress reliever and makes me feel beautiful.
- Take care of your body
Making sure you eat and sleep is essential to healing. You are one being- emotional and physical well-being go together. So take care of ALL of you.
Just remember to take it easy. You got this, and all will be well.
