20 Tips for Ultimate Rest & Peace of Mind

Updated: Oct 3

What is spiritual self-care? It sounds spooky and weird, I know. But it's not. It's a profound inner spirit knowing that we are all at one with the universe; it's loving and accepting ourselves and others unconditionally. If you want to create a sustainable level of well-being, connect to something higher than yourself, it's important to nurture your spirit.

God is my go-to. For others, it's the universe or a "higher power". Regardless, tuning into the spirit gives you calm in the chaos.


Spirituality is living a life with an ethos that embraces seeking inner truth and wisdom.


Often, many confuse spirituality with religion. I'm not talking about that. Although I believe in God and many think God equals religion and rules, I'm not talking about a list of religious dos and don'ts. Far from it. I'm advocating that you tune into a higher being and find proper rest for your soul.

Bring awareness, calm, and balance to your daily life with spiritual self-care.
