Messages of Hope – Looking After Yourself at times of stress, struggles, and setbacks
Look After Yourself. A phrase we generally use when parting ways and saying good bye to others. Unfortunately, due to the nature of our busy lives, taking a break to look after yourself generally feels like a luxury. We often find ourselves believing that pushing ourselves to the point of exhaustion will lead to greater rewards, when deep down we know this usually isn’t the case.
In your quest to achieve your dreams and live a happy and fulfilling life, looking after yourself isn’t just important, it’s crucial. To prevent burnout and keep stress from taking over, you need to take the time to look after yourself. Besides, taking breaks to look after yourself will help you reflect, refocus and re-energise.
This year we’re asking Muslims to share how they look after themselves, from a holistic perspective, at times of stress, struggles, and setbacks.
Sharing your message on how you look after yourself is as easy as 1-2-3!
1 – Write a message to yourself about how you look after yourself
Write down your message about all the different ways you look after yourself, writing as much as you would like. This may require some self-reflection and introspection but it will definitely be worth it!
2 – Send us your message
Send your message to us along with a title for the message and your favourite picture of yourself (feel free to send a picture of your back if you wish to remain anonymous, the main thing is you know it’s you!)
3 – Share your message
We’ll let you know once we’ve uploaded your message to our website so that you can share it using the hashtag #LookAfterYourself with your friends and family.
