Self-Care Outside of Therapy

Actual Conversation:

Person 1: I go to therapy every week, why do I need to do anything else about this?

Person 2: If you do your self-care work, therapy is going to go a lot smoother.

Person 1: Therapy IS my self-care!

Person 2: It’s part of your self-care.

Perhaps you’ve been on both sides of this conversation, maybe you’ve had it with yourself. It’s important to remember that therapy and medication are parts of the self-care and self-love process.

That can be really hard to cope with when it takes a lot to just get to therapy and open up there. It’s important to be mindful that each piece of the process is important: therapy, medication, self-care activities, sleeping, eating well and exercise.

What do you do outside of getting help from a health professional? What is self-care to you? Does it change? Tell us your thoughts on engaging in this?
