In previous posts we shared the importance of self-care to long-term success in one’s recovery path/program; specifically the importance of physical, spiritual and mental self-care. Here we share the importance of emotional self-care and how CaredFor can help facilitate that through the app.
EMOTIONAL – CARE FOR YOUR FEELINGS
Confronting and coping with your emotions in a healthy way is important in someone’s recovery and ongoing self-care. Emotional self-care means that you honor your feelings. You feel them and process through them, rather than push them aside and ignore them. You talk about them with people you trust and develop healthy coping skills to manage your emotions effectively.
The CaredFor app is a safe and supportive space for users to voice their feelings and gain support and guidance from other users. Daily affirmations, inspirational quotes, community challenges to promote better well-being (meditation, go for a hike) and the gratitude journal are all the features of the CareFor app used to promote emotional self-care.
