Caring for ourselves involves listening to our hearts, paying attention to our needs, and loving our unique selves. This is how we have compassion for ourselves. One “real” way to do this is by practicing what makes us joyful!
Make something for yourself that will bring a smile to your face, warm your heart, and make you feel loved.
• Bake or cook something (check with a parent first)
• Spend time drawing or painting something for your space at home
• Write yourself a letter
• Play some music and/or play an instrument
What else brings you joy? The amazing thing is that these are also wonderful things to share with others! Loving yourself well can lead to loving and caring for others in easy ways.
