Self-Care Tips

Self-care tips, random thoughts, and quotes for your pleasure and learning: 

  • But at the end of the day, it doesn't matter if you have three out of four of your limbs; it doesn't matter if you're fat, short, tall, male, female, or somewhere in between. None of that matters. All that matters is that we're human and trying to breathe together. -Jessamyn Stanley  

  • “That is really what radical forgiveness is all about - that people can feel better about themselves, accept themselves, love themselves more, and know that they are perfect just the way they are.” Colin Tipping

  • You can create a “HOPE kit” for those moments when you are down or depressed. It could be a scrapbook or a container that holds mementos that serve as a personal reminder of your accomplishments and connections in the world. Just looking at this creation can lift your mood and inspire you.

  • “Self-acceptance is a great matter, asking much of us, and giving back even more. Exploring and cultivating intimacy with what’s in the way of self-acceptance is an essential journey for us, if we are to truly come alive.” Robert Augustus Masters 

  • For some people, their automatic response when they are feeling down is to consider suicide. If your thinking process does not go there, it’s time to be grateful for that positive aspect of your personality. If you are the type of person who wants to end the pain by exiting life, ask yourself: “What one thing would have to change for you not to feel suicidal?” (Assessment and Management of Suicide Risk created by David Jones, Ph.D.) Plus, immediately get psychological support with a professional or someone you trust. 

  • “Self-acceptance is a kind of courage - a quiet courage. It means meeting life with who we are completely, being open to how we’re shaped in the same way the shore is shaped by the surf.” Mark Nepo 

  • “You can make me hurt, but you cannot make me turn against my own experience.” Steven C. Hayes 

  • “Emotions are central to almost everything we think, feel, and do. When we can accept our emotions, then self-acceptance naturally follows.” Karla McLaren 

  • “The good news is that pain, whether physical or emotional, can function as a powerful catalyst for healing, change, and growth.” Friedemann Schaub 

  • “Building a true sense of self-trust comes from making contact with the deeper parts of our being, such as the truth of our loving, even when we sometimes act in ways we don’t like.” Tara Brach 

  • Tara Brach, Ph.D. has a Mindful Awareness with Kindness practice she calls RAIN. R - Recognize what is going on under the story line. A - Allow it to be there. I - Investigating with kindness - Connect with what’s going on in the body - put hand on heart. N - Not identified with the unworthy self.

  • Because ego is built around the sense of lack, the need to improve and a sense of unworthiness, we need to be out of ego in order to be kind and gentle with ourselves. 

  • Iyanla Vanzant has a lovely prayer she uses: “Help me see this rightly.” 

  • Kristin Neff, Ph.D. Kindness Compassion Exercise - say and do: 1. “This is a moment of suffering. This is really hard or I’m hurting.” 2. “Suffering is a part of life. This is part of humanity. I’m not the only one.” 3. Do a physical gesture that conveys caring, kindness (hands on heart or face or hug self). “I’m here for you. I’ve got your back.”

  • Sometimes when we need a short break and time to reconnect with ourselves just putting our hand or hands on our heart will give us a moment of peace. Hands on our cheeks or arms around our own torso will do the same. 

  • A “conscious intent” to be kind to self is huge and a good starting point for making your day better.

  • The tone of voice you use makes a difference in how others receive your message. Notice the tone of your voice for the next few hours and see how others respond to you.

  • Self-Compassion author, Kristin Neff, Ph.D. practices listening to what she’s saying to herself when she makes a mistake or is struggling with something, then asks, “would I say the same thing to a good friend”? 

  • Author Elizabeth Gilbert describes herself as a “living permission slip” to do what she needs to do to love herself. Can you be that for yourself? 

  • Our choices will never please everyone. We are going to be criticized regardless. So, we might as well please ourselves. 

  • When I say “I SHOULD have ____” that’s always when my pain starts. I need to know where the should is coming from and need to figure it out in order to let it go. It doesn’t support me nor promote my well-being. 

  • “In an age of speed, I began to think, nothing could be more invigorating than going slow. In an age of distraction, nothing can feel more luxurious than paying attention. And in an age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting still.” Pico Iyer 

  • “Every blade of grass has its Angel that bends over it and whispers, ‘Grow, grow.’” The Talmud 

  • “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” Eleanor Roosevelt

  • Lily Thomlin, a comedian said: “Forgiveness means giving up all hope for a better past.” So true. 

  • Scientists who research forgiveness document the corrosive effects of not forgiving in addition to the benefits of doing so. Hanging on to resentment and anger can damage the heart as well as not allowing peace of mind. Failure to forgive may be a risk factor for heart disease, high blood pressure, and many other chronic stress-related illnesses. People hanging on to hostile feelings toward others are at increased risk for anxiety, depression, and insomnia and are more likely to suffer from ulcers, migraines, cancer, and backaches. The reverse is also true and real forgiveness can transform these ailments. 

  • There is a Gaelic proverb that says: “Nothing is easy for the unwilling.” Before any change, there has to be a willingness to change. What do you need to be willing about?

  • Gray Craig, the founder of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), has fine tuned his approach to include the Unseen Therapist. You can view his free information at www.emofree.com for some valuable skills that may enhance your life. 

  • Do you have the belief: “You made your bed; now lie in it” Or “You got yourself into this; you get yourself out”? Sometimes it’s hard to ask for help when we most need it because we think we have to take care of things ourselves especially when we feel responsible for the situation we are in. In these situations it might be of value to send out to the universe a cry for help with a simple prayer. 

  • The author Shauna Niequist talks about “fake-resting.” This is where she wears her pajamas while putting things away, checking off tasks on her endless “to do” list, and basically getting an amazing amount of chores done. She says: “I fake-rested instead of real-rested, and then I found that I was real-tired.” When are you “fake-resting” when you need to take a few minutes to do what dogs know intuitively to do - lay down and take a quick nap? 

  • Do you spend more time asking your loved ones for help doing the dishes or getting something done efficiently than you ask about their life, dreams, or ideas? Are you on extra-capable, “I can handle a whole lot of things” mode? What price are you paying for this? Exhausted? Over-scheduled? What is one small thing you could do today to allow yourself to rest or to connect with someone you love? 

  • A recommendation for getting at your desire or dream is to answer this question: “If someone gave you a completely blank calendar and a bank account as full as you wanted, what would you do?” Take a moment to write down your ideas. 

  • Insights from Shauna Niequist from her book Present - Over - Perfect: “My regrets: how many years I bruised people with my fragmented, anxious presence. How many moments of connection I missed - too busy, too tired, too frantic and strung out on the drug of efficiency.” Do you see yourself here? What could you shift that would make you even easier to be around? 

  • "We think that by protecting ourselves from suffering we are being kind to ourselves. The truth is we only become more fearful, more hardened, and more alienated. We experience ourselves as being separate from the whole. This separateness becomes like a prison for us, a prison that restricts us to our personal hopes and fears and to caring only for the people nearest to us. Curiously enough, if we primarily try to shield ourselves from discomfort, we suffer. Yet when we don't close off and we let our hearts break, we discover our kinship with all beings." Pema Chodren

  • Seen in the mid-west on a church sign: "Children are like wet cement. Whatever touches them leaves an impression." 

  • When you find yourself thinking or saying: "He or she is driving me crazy!" ask yourself what creative work you are trying to avoid by spending your time and attention in their drama? It might be time to educate yourself around codependency and stop the crazy making dance. 

  • "What doesn't kill me makes me stronger." Albert Camus 

  • “What we’ve really got to do is stop listening to our minds. We instead need to listen to the silence inside, listen in that place where our listening takes us beyond what we think we know. This is true even when we’re in turmoil, deep sadness, grief, or depression. Strangely, the more we struggle to get out of these states, the deeper we sink into them. The more we try to figure them out, the more we find ourselves confused, when what we really need to do is to begin to listen. Listening is the first step to discovering our autonomy, an autonomy that, if we take this search for our own happiness and freedom all the way, will fully flower one day into something you can’t imagine.” – Falling into Grace by Adyashanti 

    Adyashanti asks: “What do you know that you may not want to know?” You may want to do some release writing like Julia Cameron recommends with her Morning Pages from her book: The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity - write three pages long hand on this topic without thinking and without stopping. See what you discover. 

  • To maximize brain functioning, there are three keys: sleep, light exposure, and exercise. 

  • WRITING TO HEAL

    James Pennebaker a researcher at the University of Texas at Austin and author of Writing to Heal, has done research on the power of expressive writing in the healing process. “Emotional upheavals touch every part of our lives. You don’t just lose a job, you don’t just get divorced. These things affect all aspects of who we are - our  financial situation, our relationships with others, our views of ourselves, our issues of life and death. Writing helps us focus and organize the experience.” Pennebaker believes that because our minds are designed to try to understand things that happened to us, translating messy, difficult experiences into language essentially makes them graspable.”

    He recommends writing about emotional upheaval for just 15 to 20 minutes a day on four consecutive days can help decrease anxiety, rumination, depressive symptoms and boost our immune systems.

  • AGING AS A SPIRITUAL PRACTICE BY LEWIS RICHMOND 

    As I grow older, may I be kind to myself;

    As I grow older, may I accept joy and sorrow;

    As I grow older, may I be happy and at peace.

    As each of us grows older, may we be kind to ourselves; 

    As each of us grows older, may we accept joy and sorrow;

    As each of us grows older, ma we be happy and at peace.

    As all beings grow older, may they be kind to themselves;

    As all beings grow older, may they accept joy and sorrow;

    As all beings grow older, may they be happy and at peace. 

  • “‘Why is it that we suffer?’ [This is] not the only question that human beings have asked through the ages, but in some way it’s the most intimate, because we’re in fact biologically hardwired not to suffer. In other words, when we feel conflict, when we feel some sort of anxiety, our bodies get tense. When we suffer, our bodies respond directly—our breathing changes, our heart rate changes; our bodies send signals that something’s not quite right. In many ways, we’re biologically impelled to find a way not to suffer.” –Adyashanti

    Adyashanti points out the three primary ways the mind turns away from the experience of pain and toward suffering: it buys into the illusion of control; it demands that things be different; and it argues with what is and what was. Observe these “habitual patterns of thinking” and pay attention to your body which reveals the truth. Ask: “Am I identified with the illusion/belief that I can control this? Am I expecting things to be different than they are? Am I NOT accepting the reality of the present or past?”

  • For a rapid reduction in anxiety and a quick stress reducer, take a 10-minute brisk walk. The increase in energy lasts 60-120 minutes. This is equal to a cup of regular coffee and is a much better health choice.

  • A technique from Positive Psychology: Each day ask: “What three things went well today?” 

  • They're words of wisdom that will take you on a journey beyond yourself. Read these thoughts from  Michael Singer, author of The Untethered Soul:

  • “Sometimes you don’t know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice.” Unknown 

  • Dr.John Gottman Making Marriage work. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AKTyPgwfPgg&feature=youtu.be

  • "Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can't cry it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It's just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can...across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal." Cheryl Strayed 

  • "Life may be brimming over with experiences, but somewhere, deep inside, all of us carry a vast and fruitful loneliness wherever we go." Etty Hillesum 

  • Irwin Yalom in his book: Rippling said: “As a therapist, I touch people for future generations. We keep touching people’s lives long after we are gone even thought I won’t know it.” This is also very true of teachers. Since I have been both, I am giving myself permission to celebrate all the lives I’ve touched in positive ways even though for most of them, I’m unaware of the rippling effect I’ve had. 

  • Mooji who wrote Writing on Water said this: "Just say inside your heart, 'I am open, take me.' That itself is a mighty prayer, a true surrendering which can never be refused." 

  • Dr. Steven R. Gundry’s Rule Number 1: “What you STOP eating has far more impact on your health than what you start eating.”

  • Dharma Talks by Jack Kornfield (Buddhist)

     

  • From A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle: "Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on." What is it that you need or want to let go? 

  • Rumi, 13th century poet wrote: 

    The Guest House

     

    This being human is a guest house.

    Every morning a new arrival.

     

    A joy, a depression, a meanness,

    some momentary awareness comes

    as an unexpected visitor.

     

    Welcome and entertain them all!

    Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,

    who violently sweep your house

    empty of its furniture,

    still, treat each guest honorably.

    He may be clearing you out

    for some new delight.

     

    The dark thought, the shame, the malice.

    meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

     

    Be grateful for whatever comes.

    because each has been sent

    as a guide from beyond.

  • If we could read the secret history of our enemies,
    we should find in each man's life sorrow and suffering
    enough to disarm all hostility.
    - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 

  • Bring awareness to moments of reacting and explore options for responding with greater mindfulness, spaciousness and creativity, in formal meditation practice and in everyday life. Remember that the breath is an anchor, a way to heighten awareness of reactive tendencies, to slow down and make more conscious choices. Even if you don’t have a regular meditation practice, you can anchor 2-3 deep breathes each day with something you automatically do such as brushing your teeth or eating meals. 

  • If I Had My Life to Live Over

    I'd dare to make more mistakes next time.

    I'd relax. I would limber up.

    I would be sillier than I have been this trip.

    I would take fewer things seriously.

    I would take more chances.

    I would take more trips.

    I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers.

    I would eat more ice cream and less beans.

    I would perhaps have more actual troubles but I'd 

    have fewer imaginary ones.

    You see, I'm one of those people who live sensibly 

    and sanely hour after hour, day after day.

    Oh, I've had my moments and if I had it to do over 

    again, I'd have more of them. In fact, 

    I'd try to have nothing else. Just moments.

    One after another, instead of living so many 

    years ahead of each day.

    I've been one of those people who never go anywhere 

    without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a raincoat 

    and a parachute.

    If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot 

    earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall.

    If I had it to do again, I would travel lighter next time.

    I would go to more dances.

    I would ride more merry-go-rounds.

    I would pick more daisies.

    By Nadine Stair (age 85)

  • The Universe Has Your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein

    “When you deliberately focus your attention on love and joy, then you open the floodgates to receive miracles. Most of us get caught up focusing on what’s going wrong. But what if we spent our days looking at all that’s going right? Make a conscious effort to look for love throughout the day. To ignite this process, begin your day with a prayer: I focus my attention on the love that is around me, and I expect miracles.” 

  • The quote is from the book The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood: "The point is simply this: How tender can we bear to be? What good manners can we show as we welcome ourselves and others into our hearts?" 

  • The Universe Has Your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein

    “The next time you get hung up in a victim mentality over why something isn’t working out the way you planned, simply say this prayer and realign with love:

    Thank you, Universe, for helping me see this obstacle as an opportunity. I will step back and let you lead the way.” 

  • “I keep the telephone of my mind open to peace, harmony, health, love and abundance. Then, whenever doubt, anxiety, or fear try to call me, they will keep getting a busy signal – and soon they’ll forget my number.”  – Edith Armstrong

  • Perhaps ultimately, spiritual simply means
    experiencing wholeness and interconnectedness directly,
    a seeing that individuality and the totality are interwoven,
    that nothing is separate or extraneous.
    If you see in this way, then everything becomes spiritual in its deepest sense.  Doing science is spiritual. So is washing the dishes. - Jon Kabat-Zinn

  • “Commitment is that turning point in your life when you seize the moment and convert it into an opportunity to alter your destiny.” – Denis Waitley 

  • Mary O’Malley’s book The Gift Of Our Compulsions has been so valuable to me in learning how to keep addressing my feelings when I just want to escape the intensity.  In the past I headed for sugar to numb myself out from feeling too much or I ate when I was tired instead of resting. I am grateful for my struggles because they have taught me a lot.  What are you noticing you do to escape? 

  • The Universe Has Your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein

    “This is my mission: to guide you to choose love no matter what so that you can turn all obstacles into opportunities for spiritual growth.”

  • TedTalk https://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability

  • Sit down wherever you are
    And listen to the wind singing in your veins. 
    Feel the love, the longing, the fear in your bones. 
    Open your heart to who you are, right now, 
    Not who you would like to be, 
    Not the saint you are striving to become, 
    But the being right here before you, inside you, around you. 
    All of you is holy. 
    You are already more and less 
    Than whatever you can know. 
    Breathe out, 
    Touch in, 
    Let go.

    By: John Welwood

  • Listened to a woman's idea where she is high-fiving herself to give herself credit for each of her personal accomplishments per day. It reminds me of something that I started some time ago and that I recommend people do to feeling even better about themselves. I say “Hello Beautiful” to myself when I see my reflection in a mirror, window, water, or anything that reflects.  Sometimes I use a funny voice, sometimes I use my normal voice, and each time I feel better. At times it’s resulted in me laughing hysterically because my hair is a mess or I have on really grubby clothes. You might want to add this to your repertoire of things to do for yourself for TLC. If you're a guy just substitute the word to "handsome."

  • The Universe Has Your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein

    “The moment you witness frustration in your life try this prayer: Universe, thank you for helping me find joy in this situation.”

  • I don't have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness.
    It's right in front of me if I'm paying attention and practicing gratitude.
    - Brené Brown 

  • “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”

    –– Helen Keller 

  • If you are like me, you are often frustrated by computers. When my computer has a problem and I contact a professional, the first thing they usually recommend is to turn it off and start it again and see if that fixes it. Nine times out of ten, it cures my problem. Sometimes a computer just needs to reboot, and so do we! We just need to start again with self-compassion and a helpful reboot for our minds. We all deserve GOLD STARS because each of us is doing the very best we can! So give yourself a "reboot" by giving yourself credit for something you are doing right. 

  • HAPPY LABOR DAY - CELEBRATING BEING AN AMERICAN! 

  • What is your intention today? My intention for today is to surrender to whatever is most helpful to my highest good. This likely means getting more rest and stressing less.

  • “With every act of self care your authentic self gets stronger, and the critical, fearful mind gets weaker. Every act of self care is a powerful declaration: I am on my side; each day I am more and more on my side.”   Susan Weiss Berry

  • "Determination and perseverance move the world; thinking that others will do it for you is a sure way to fail."  Educator, Marva Collins

  • Researcher James Pennebaker wrote Writing to Heal and found 15-20 minutes of writing, 4 days in a row helped reduce anxiety, rumination, and depressive symptoms and it boosts our immune systems. 

  • “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who come short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who is the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly…" Theodore Roosevelt

  • What are you doing to shift your behavior to support yourself? 

  • Notice two things in your life today: 1. What are your moment by moment experiences of happiness? 2. What gave you satisfaction during your day? 

  • From the book: The Only Little Prayer You Need by Debra Landwehr Engle - PLEASE HEAL MY FEAR BASED THOUGHTS. "When we ask for our fear-based thoughts to be healed, we are asking to replace fear with love and acceptance." 

  • Phone App "Anxiety Release "by Mark Grant based on EMDR principles. Need headphones to use. Less than $5 investment. Plus, the meditations are short and very valuable for any kind of anxiety. 

  • “Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.” Brad Paisley 

  • Research shows that our deepest sleep occurs within 20-90 minutes of going to sleep. So, perhaps even those of you who wake up in the middle of the night with insomnia challenges, can give yourself more credit for the rest you are getting. 

  • Forgiveness is a big act that many people advise us to do. However, it’s not always an easy task. We don’t forgive to help the other person, nor do we forgive for anyone but ourselves. Forgiveness is at its best a form of personal liberation, the ultimate in self-care. This is true both scientifically and spiritually. Research shows that people who are more forgiving experience fewer physical and mental health problems along with fewer physical symptoms of stress. 

  • “Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your inner voice.” Steve Jobs

  • The Universe Has Your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein

    “The next time you get hung up in a victim mentality over why something isn’t working out the way you planned, simply say this prayer and realign with love:

    Thank you, Universe, for helping me see this obstacle as an opportunity. I will step back and let you lead the way.” 

  • You have heard that meditation will improve your life in ways you can't imagine and yet most people don't manage a regular practice. There are some easier ways to focus moment to moment that can bring a sense of peace inside. Bring awareness in moments of reacting and explore options for responding with greater mindfulness in everyday life is one of them. The breath can be an anchor, a way to heighten our awareness of reactive tendencies, a way to slow down and by deepening our breath it can help us make more conscious choices. You can anchor 2-3 deep breathes each day with something you automatically do such as brushing your teeth or eating meals. This small anchoring can give you a greater sense of inner tranquility.

  • Lighten up, play more, laugh at yourself. Schedule time for recreation. Spend time with friends and family who love you. You will be happier as a result.

  • It's okay to say "no" to requests from others. Your time is one of your most precious commodities; use it wisely.

  • Researcher James Pennebaker wrote Writing to Heal and found 15-20 minutes of writing, 4 days in a row helped reduce anxiety, rumination, and depressive symptoms and it boosts our immune systems. I encourage each of us to do our own writing. I am doing it and it's helping with my stress level. 

  • "A friend is a gift you give yourself."  Writer, Robert Louis Stevenson

  • Important question to ask yourself: What is the one thing I need to do to take care of me today?

  • Be persistent in achieving your goals. It's important to remember that there is no such thing as failure, just a delay in achieving your goal. Go for your dream.

  • "Destroy negative thoughts when they first appear. This is when they're the weakest." Songide Makwa

  • “Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.” Brad Paisley 

  • "What we do during our working hours determines what we have; what we do in our leisure hours determines what we are."
    Entrepreneur, George Eastman

  • Growing older is not an option, it's a given if we are fortunate. How we grow older is an option! Are you growing older with grace?

  • Don't Sweat the Small Stuff in Love is a great bathroom reader for both people in a relationship. It helps us be aware of how to make the best of our connections with people we love.

  • More "messages from God" on billboards around the USA: Need a marriage counselor? I'm available.        Follow me.               Keeping using my name in vain, I'll make rush hour longer.               I don't question your existence.

  • Change happens all the time yet many resist it. It is the one constant factor in our lives year after year. Think about a year ago and what has changed in your life? Change won't go away. What can you do to welcome and embrace it? 

  • All relationships need work and dedication to remain in them. My observations of what happy partners do are: 1. Say please and thank you to each other- treat each other with dignity and respect, just like most people treat strangers. 2. Reminisce about how, when, where, and why they fell in love - they talk about it and remind each other of their loving beginning history. 3. Show and say appreciation for each other. They display an attitude of gratitude toward each other and their relationship.

  • "Thank you" are extremely important words. How often are you using them? If you don't us them much, can you start with silently saying them each time you are grateful?

  • From the book, The Universe Has Your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein Page 117 “Begin your day with a prayer: I focus my attention on the love that is around me, and I expect miracles.”

  • It is our choice if our life is empty or fulfilling. An empty life is one of isolation. A fulfilling life is one of connection. Are you ready for a challenge? Relate to people you don't normally talk to, offer a helping hand, listen, practice connecting. What do you have to lose except emptiness?
