Therapy tips- do you feel burned out? Tired? Emotionally drained? Me too!
I have two degrees one being a Masters in Counseling I say this because there were many times I educated my clients on this very subject & didnt follow it myself!
I watched this excellent pod cast yesterday on Compassion Fatigue @iamnataliebrite & it really brought some thoughts to me on things I have been doing myself within the last year that have helped me....ya'll know I'm all about free therapy tips for my social media friends!! ------------------------- -1. You have to give yourself some love in all 3 parts of you = mind, body & spirit --SPIRIT fill yourself up with The Word of God daily! Read the Bible, books, music, spend quiet time alone daily mediating on His word, pray, go to studies ----MIND: what a man thinks in his heart so HE IS- YOU are what YOU think so if you have bad thoughts it's ok we all do just tell yourself they're not true, say allowed daily some affirmations I'm beautiful, I'm loved, I'm smart! Also surround yourself with those who lift you up! ----BODY- Your body is a temple! Nourish it correctly! I watch my sugar & carbs intake & on sundays I let myself eat whatever I want! I go for walks with my dog every morning & evening ....find some type of balance physically & nutritionally that works for you! You will screw up give yourself grace & start again! -
2. Limit your news, & social media intake. This can emotionally drain you, confuse you & make you feel you're not enough at times! I start to get numb! Let me tell you a secret there's a thing in the counseling world called Exposure Therapy know that the media uses this to expose you to horrific things daily to the point you become numb to them .....limit yourself compassion & empathy is needed shut down do #1 -3. Set boundaries it's okay to say no should I repeat that? Say no when you need to rest it's ok not to be everywhere & do everything! -
4. Give back our world is a broken place use your gifts to help others in need!
