What does self-care mean for you? In the midst of our current circumstances, we are still managing some everyday responsibilities as well as facing new challenges each day. Most of us may have found new routines or each day has its own rhythm. As we continue to navigate this unusual time, I would invite you to consider the question, how can I find rest in the Lord? Mentally? Physically? Emotionally? Spiritually?
For me I am connecting with an old rhythm from my childhood years of dance and taking barre classes virtually. I am taking walks with my dog through our neighborhood. I am talking to friends by phone or video chat. I am finding space (even if it's brief) for quiet time and prayer. I am joining with a group of JCPC women for six weeks in an online Bible study about women who encountered Jesus. I'm not sure what works well for you, but I wanted to share a few resources that are available and may be meaningful for you.
