Self Care Strategies

Set good boundaries - boundaries are ways to maintain your own space, whether it’s physical, emotional, or psychological
Get a buddy to keep you accountable
Clearly define your priorities and values
Keep a sense of perspective - sometimes a problem gets bigger in our heads than it is in real life!
Manage your time wisely
Track your own repetitive patterns
Utilize your spiritual resources
Seek help and support on a regular basis - not just when you are in a crisis
