Remember if you are blogging daily each point is a daily topic BUT if you are blogging weekly you DO NOT have to incorporate all these themes but instead use them as inspiration for your own response to the theme!
It may be you are beginning or early in recovery and want to look at the barriers to self-care and how you can overcome them.
Perhaps you are well in recovery and making the transition towards returning to work school etc. and wish to explore concerns in this area, self-worth, and self-esteem and explore ways you can embrace self-caring behaviours as life skills?
Maybe you want to reflect on your journey this far and discuss self-care in terms of where you began, to where you are now, and where you wish to go.
It is entirely up to you how you address this theme.
For those who wish to blog daily or would like some direction as to what they might consider for this week’s challenge here are seven pointers: -
-Barriers to Self-Care and Self Soothing
-Balancing Self Soothing and Connections with others (social aspects)
-Create a poem, piece of art; find a quote, an image, a poem that speaks to you about self-care and self-soothing.
