Make a Care Container - inspired by Rodecka (Bananas hit the G Spot) and Makda
Self Care domains
Physical - maintaining bodymind wellbeing
Emotional - stress management and emotional maturity, forgiveness, compassion
Social - boundaries, how are you supported and connected in life, time with others
Spiritual - Time with self, nature, sacred space, reflection
Write down all the things you do/want to do to care for yourself
Pull from the container when needed - set a goal try to pull 3 times a week
