So often, this is a question that is not even considered. Ministry and leadership can be an island, and if we are not intentional we will isolate ourselves even though it is not necessary to lead effectively, in fact just the opposite. What resources do you have that can help you better embrace healthy self-care? What kind of support in the forms of people, structures, policies etc can help you in your self-care? What strengths, skills and tools do you already have that you can leverage not just for your ministry, organization and others, but for yourself; particularly in the area of self-care? Many times our excuses for not embracing self-care is a lack of resources, but I have found that this is simply not accurate. Take an inventory of the people and things you have that can help you in your self care!
