“Come all ye who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest.” Mt 11:28


Spiritual direction: Embrace spiritual self-care by meeting with a spiritual director.  Learn more and find listings of certified spiritual directors in East Ohio at, nationally at (Fellowship of United Methodist Spiritual Directors and Retreat Leaders), or globally at (Spiritual Directors International).


Color:  Bring your colored pencils, Bible and coloring books to a local park. Relax, pray and bask in the beauty of God’s creation.


Sleep:  Allow yourself a guilt-free, 20-minute nap smack dab in the middle of the day. Savor a moment of rest & renewal. 


Sing loudly:  Roll down the car windows, feel the breeze, and belt out your favorite tunes.  No need to stop singing at the stop lights – bring a smile to your fellow drivers as you make a joyful noise to the Lord!
