This month, let’s embark on a journey toward this fitness—a state where our emotional well-being is not just acknowledged but actively cultivated. At its core, emotional fitness is the deliberate practice of self-care through a sincere commitment to four pillars: self-acceptance, self-connection, self-compassion, and self-trust.
Welcome, dear readers, to my first post in an ongoing blog series I’m doing with Breathing Spaces: Compassionate Conversations. I’m Cindy Gum, and it warms my heart to embark on this year’s journey of self-discovery and emotional care with each of you.
Before we delve into the theme of emotional self-care, let me share a personal moment. This morning when I began my journaling practice, I paused as I often do, but noticed how nurtured I felt as I sipped a quiet cup of coffee and it reminded me of the power within simple acts of self-care.
