Understand The Need For Self-Care
lock

The term "self-care is often heard today, mostly in the western world across multiple
disciplines, especially the helping professions such as healthcare workers, caregivers,
clergy, counselors, and social workers. In today's society, more people are
experiencing burn out. Burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion
caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It occurs when you feel overwhelmed and
emotionally drained. For example, a church or business leader experiencing burnout
may, at some point, be unable to efficiently do any work or serve others as a result of
constant exhaustion.


Some may assume that as Christians, we are supposed to ignore ourselves and put others' needs above ours, but that is not what scripture states. The Bible does instruct us not just to seek our own good, but also the good of others. 1 Corinthians 10:24. In order to help and care for others, we must ensure that we are in good health (not just physically but mentally, spiritually, and emotionally). Thus, in this course, the student will be able to understand what practicing self-care looks like and how it can benefit the individual, the business, the local church, and the community.
