Taking better care of yourself

Restore My Soul: Reimagining Self-Care for a Sustainable Life by Janice McWilliams is written by a therapist and spiritual director. Taking better care of yourself is a key theme in the book. She writes, “an unhealthy soul will exhaust you far, far more than a restored one.“ This book guides the reader toward restoration. She helps her readers reimagine self-care. I was immediately confused because I do not follow Enneagram theories and the “repressed-centers” theory.

Ms. McWilliams grabbed my attention again with the “flaws in Barbie-style” self-care. I appreciate her many Scripture references about taking care of yourself. Her writing style is authoritative.

The author tells interesting stories from her therapy chair while respecting each patient. She demonstrates compassion for people who need soul care.

Book Description

How is your self-care? These soul-restoring practices lead to a rich, satisfying life.

Have you tried self-care but found that you still feel overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, and are struggling emotionally? The most effective efforts aren’t desperate last-ditch attempts but practiced daily—moment by moment and hour by hour.

Janice McWilliams, a therapist and spiritual director, uses the life of Jesus as her model to help her clients achieve new levels of peace and fulfillment. In Restore My Soul, Janice shares her practical counseling insight to help you understand and practice the essential skills to

  • manage your thoughts,
  • live well with your emotions,
  • establish soul-restoring rhythms, and
  • live a fulfilling life.

With these practices, you’ll become increasingly comfortable and confident in working through your inner experiences in real time. Instead of burning out, you can follow the lead of Jesus toward a sustainable, fulfilling life.
