We believe in the concept of self-care, not only for clients in a counseling session, but for all people, including Christians. It’s not a quick fix or a selfish act. Instead, self-care is about stewardship, discipline, and boundaries to not only address thoughts and emotions internally, but to deepen your faith commitment with God and relationship with Him.
And while it is very important, we know that many people do not know how to do it well. So we wanted to create a list of self-care techniques and skills you can do to improve for yourself. Along with that, we even give you a way to assess your current self-care, how to identify ways to improve it that works for you, and next steps to make the changes last.
How would you want to try this?
- Download it for yourself, certainly.
- Are you being discipled? Ask your discipler to join you.
- In a small group? Have everyone do it together and keep yourself accountable.
- Are you a pastor? Have it on hand for leadership conferences or when someone sits in your office and needs help.
- Are you a Christian counselor? This integrates very well with Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectic Behavioral, Person-Centered, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy.
We want to see Christians closer to God and restored from their brokenness.
