the process of healing

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.

Day 25

Your health is really all you have. Though you may have alot of other things, without your health you won’t live your life to the fullest. I am currently beginning my training for a 5K, so my health is really important. When doing things out of your normal routine, like working out, it’s important to really care for your body. You deserve to live your life to the fullest. Make sure that you are the main one allowing you to be the best you! Your health- physical, mental, spiritual and emotional- always comes first! Take care of yourself!
