Throughout the industry, we have heard the expression take care of yourself.
Self-care is not based on feelings, emotion, job security, and depend on others for our wellbeing.
Self-care requires us to make health decisions that will help us maintain balance and healthy lifestyles between our spirits, souls, and bodies.
God’s Word reminds us
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 ESV “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body”.
