Types of Self Care
These are the major types of self care focused on at The Midday Latte:
In each area, we will look at how you can best contribute to your own health and wellness. You may not have control over all factors in all areas, but there are things you can incorporate into your self-care routine. If you live in the city, you may need to look a bit farther to find grass to walk on. Planning and attending to each individual area allows you to maintain control over the flow of your routine.
Alternatively, we can’t stop global warming, but we can make choices to live more sustainably and conscientiously. We can make choices to share information with loved ones about living conscientiously and sustainable. These are examples of environmental self-care. When we admit to our feelings, we can take steps, big or small, to meaningfully respond and care for ourselves.
Focused on Emotional Self-Care
The Midday Latte is focused, first, on emotional self-care. Emotional self-care is the foundation of self-worth, confidence, boundaries, and the pursuit of happiness. TML supports finding peace, stability, and the inner strength to maintain it. Through blog posts, podcast episodes, affirmations, deep dive journal questions, yoga and meditation practices, I’ll help you listen closer to your inner voice and find the answers you’re looking for.
The Pursuit of You is my podcast focused on helping people become happier in their lives. By setting healthy boundaries and improving self-worth, you can build strong, healthy, care communities. Each episode is around 10 minutes with nuggets of information to incorporate into your self-care planning and routines.
Uncovering feelings and giving them space to breathe takes time and effort. Here, you’re encouraged to spend more time thinking about the dynamics of your everyday life, evaluating the relationships you’re a part of, and doing the internal work that allows you to pursue a happier life.
How to be Happier
Happy is a mood, a state achievable for anyone and everyone. Being happy doesn’t mean you’re never hurt or upset. It doesn’t mean you’ll always reach the outcome you desire. What happy does mean, and what you can expect to focus on here, is having the mental stability to return to balance through turmoil.
Self-worth Supporting Confidence
Our self-worth, or self-value, is the foundation of our relationships. The way we respond to feelings and offer compassion extends to the way we respond to other’s feelings and need for compassion. Focusing on building our self-worth allows us to offer greater respect and compassion to ourselves, and to the people we care about.
With Confidence supported by the knowledge that we are worthy of that which we seek, we connect with people who value healthy independent and interconnected relationships.
Our care community is made up of all the people who care about us. Some people in our community are healthy influences, some of them are not. Building a healthy community provides us with support and purpose. We feel worthy of care when we care about other people. When we take care of ourselves, we recognize the care humans need, and our compassion grows.
Building the right community around you starts with seeing yourself and your needs clearly. Start here.
