What is Soul Care?
The question here is what is self care vs soul care?
Self care is vital to sustained health. Most people know this. By now, especially if you’ve had any physical ailments of any kind, you’re aware that balance in all areas of your life is so important to sustained vitality. Just in case this is new information for you, here are the main areas in life that must be tended with equal love and attention:
Fundamentals of Self Care:
Nourishing your body with healthy, vibrant food & adequate water
Getting regular exercise that includes sweating / detoxing
Sleeping soundly at least 8 hrs / day
Addressing Addictions & Unhealthy Habits
Daily Relaxation processes
Intimacy & healthy relationships
Emotional Intelligence & Well-being
There’s so much wonderful information and support in each of these areas available if something is out of balance in your life. Find the support you need and learn to thrive.
This discussion goes one step further. I’m noticing so many folks in a thriving career and just plain unhappy. Many of them are physically healthy, have good relationships and have most of life in order and still, are experiencing a dull ache. It’s hard to even pinpoint where the ache is originating. It’s just there.
My good friend Jennifer Summerfeldt has been exploring this concept of Soul Care as of late and it’s a great fit for what I believe is missing in today’s world.

We’re conditioned to achieve, set goals, master skills, be successful. Rarely are we ever taught to nurture the heart, slow down, relax, accept the circumstances that arise, or foster understanding for ourselves or another. Th
