Today’s MWB is going to be a blast from my archive past. I’m out of town spending some quality time with my sister, and so I have collected some of the older posts, from the Seuss series, Self-Care 101, and my Coping with Illness series that you might have missed. I hope that you find something helpful–and the regular post round-up will be back next week.
The Seuss Series
I’m a tiny bit obsessed with Dr. Seuss, and several of his books have inspired Self-Care 101 posts. Here they are:
From The Butter Battle Book, some thoughts about how conflict affects our relationships.
From I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew, an exploration about how we approach difficulties that we face in life.
Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose provides a great opportunity to look at healthy boundaries.
This post on kindness (to yourself and others) is one of my most popular posts from 2011.
For me, having a list of activities that you know help you get centered is a huge self-care win.
Since life is often less than perfect, good self-care includes having strategies to get back on track when life throws you a curveball.
Coping With Illness Series
Anger is one of the emotions that often gets neglected when people are talking about coping with illness.
For many people, the hardest part of dealing with illness are the daily tasks and struggles.
Sometimes, we need permission to accept the challenges and pain of facing our illness.
