Self-Care and Emotional Well-Being
“Self-Care and Emotional Well-being”
By Tanya Ruckstuhl-Valenti LICSW, MSW
Notice how uplifting kindness is to you as well as to the recipient of your kindness. Develop an appetite for being of service.
Pay attention to the company you keep. When you are feeling stressed or unhappy, avoid people who bring you further down. Seek friends who are generally content, happily married or happily single, emotionally secure and do not constantly use their time with you to complain. Of course we all occasionally need to vent, but limit your time with people who continually vent and do not engage in change.
Don’t take my word for it! Try these suggestions out for yourself. Give them a thirty day trial period and see if your overall sense of joy hasn’t blossomed and grown!
