Essentials of Unselfish Self-Care

Presented by: Jessica Croker

Ladies, I hate to say it, but I think we all know the cliche is true: “If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!”  Our internal state is felt, absorbed, and reflected by those closest to us, and if our personal needs are neglected, that internal state is most likely one of exhaustion, frustration, and stress.  As homeschool moms, we are so busy taking care of our spouses, our homes, and our children’s physical, spiritual, and educational needs that often our own self-care gets put on the back burner.

Often we think of self-care as things like a private bath, a pedicure, a hair-cut, or a cute new outfit, but these things can seem indulgent, even selfish, to those of us who have dedicated our lives and our all to serving others. Come learn the three components of UNSELFISH self-care and what it takes to go beyond simply having some “me” time to understanding what it takes to take care of yourself in a deeply nourishing, compassionate, and fulfilling way.
