“Even if I had time to rest, I wouldn’t know what to do.” Sounds familiar? You’re not alone. Bonnie shares how to take better care of yourself with specific types of TLC. Which kind do you need most? Physical rest (unplugging/doing less), emotional rest (reconnecting with friends), or spiritual rest/encouragement (time with God)?

Scripture: “Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10

Soul Care Tip & Scientific Research: Try making something with your hands. Learn the benefits of lowering anxiety with repetitive motion.

Links + Resources from This Episode:

The original Hebrew meaning of “Be still (raphah) and know (yada) that I am God" means to loosen your grip, relax to personally experience God.

Studies show the repetitive motion of creating with our hands returns calm to the nervous system. For links to this study and more, sign up for Bonnie’s Newsletter here.
