5 Love Languages of Self-Care

I recently released a new e-book, with the above title. Check out a piece here and get the entire e-book at my online store, www.bit.ly/thedocswinerstore

“Being selfish can be life-saving. Take time out for you.”

Have you heard of this book (The 5 Love Languages, by Gary Chapman) ? It was and is a key ingredient, I believe, in the happy marriage I have with hubby, and used as a teaching tool during our pre-marital counseling before our wedding. We refer back to it often. Here are the languages that Gary Chapman explains in his book:

1. Words of Affirmation
2. Acts of Service
3. Receiving Gifts
4. Quality Time
5. Physical Touch

My 2 are Receiving Gifts and Physical Touch.

Chapter 1

Words of Affirmation

Stop degrading yourself in word and in deed; in real life and on social media. Research shows 80% of our own self-talk is negative. There’s enough negativity in the world to go around. Don’t be your own worst enemy. Speak life into your situation daily. Stop saying “can’t” or “might not,” and say  “can” and “will.”
