We each have dignity because we are created in the image and likeness of God. The importance of self-care is vital to good mental health and well-being. Proper nutrition, hydration, sleep, and exercise are key to one’s self-care. When you take care of yourself, you are also able to take care of others.
"Lord, You invite all who are burdened to come to you.
Allow Your healing hand to heal me.
Touch my soul with Your compassion for others;
touch my heart with Your courage and infinite love for all;
touch my mind with Your wisdom,
and may my mouth always proclaim Your praise.
Teach me to reach out to You in all my needs,
and help me to lead others to You by my example. Most loving heart of Jesus,
bring me health in body and spirit that I may serve You with all my strength.
Touch gently this life which you have created, now and forever. Amen."
