When we change how we feel about our chores, and how we view their necessity in our days, we can really make them count as self-care in our healing journey

When we think about self-care and healing, we often feel overwhelmed at the prospect of adding more things to our all ready overflowing to-do list. So if we can’t add more to the list, how can we make the items that are already on there really count? The answer: change how we feel about our chores, and how we view their necessity in our days. It might sound weird, but we can actually make our day-to-day tasks count as self-care in our healing journey.

Main Take-Aways

• Your self-talk about the chores/tasks/work you have to do will shape how you feel about them

• You can reframe the way you look at the things on your to-do list not as things you “have to do”, but things you “get to do” as an act of self-care

• You can choose to look at the “mundane” tasks as a respite from our emotional turmoil

• Choose to do things you have to do with a focus on the feelings you want to experience. E.g. the sense of wellbeing that comes from having a tidy home, or the sense of pride that comes from knowing your dog feels great after taking her for a walk

While I may technically be the Director here at SwanWaters, my unofficial title is Healing Cheerleader! I’m a survivor of childhood emotional abuse and workplace bullying. And believe me when I say that I’ve walked the walk when it comes to healing from trauma. I firmly believe that we can undo some of the damage that abuse has done to us, and learn the necessary skills to handle life and all it brings us.
