One thought on “Care of Self: A Practical Model for Health and Spiritual Wellness”
I thought of a couple points from our conversations and some of today’s questions.
Someone asked about movement for those who cannot stand. Remember posture and chair yoga can still support NEAT, breathing, and other sources of health. Many who cannot easily stand can move and even dance. A few years back, one of my colleagues did a community project with a facility in Immokalee Florida where they held dance circles for those who were not mobile. They produced an artistically inspired video that you can access at https://vimeo.com/100603764
The other point I continue to reflect on is how we can share self-care values with others, especially our youth. I was reminded through my conversations with you afterwards that we can each only have authority over our own health and wellness. But positive modeling goes a long way! Even the research demonstrates that the many workplace wellness programs offered today are most successful when the leaders partake in them too.
Please feel free to share this presentation with others.
