Self-Care for Care-Givers |  15 Mini-Seminars
        A Practical Seminar by Fr. Joe Mannath SDB

Open to Religious, Priests, Seminarians and Lay Leaders

Self-care is essential for our happiness and for being effective care-givers.
This one-day mini-seminar gives practical tips on self-care in five areas, namely:

  1. Body: Areas to watch: food, exercise, hygiene, rest and medication.
  2. Mind: The incredible potential of the human mind; how to cultivate a superpower memory; multiple intelligences.
  3. Emotions: Simple ways to increase our happiness; how to manage “negative emotions” (anger, jealousy, fear, sadness); healthy integration of sexual feelings; when not to take decisions.
  4. Relationships: Relationships as the key factor in happiness and health; four things to do; three things to avoid.
  5. Inner journey: The role of positive core beliefs; Jesus as model and norm; a cancer patient’s secret of happiness.

Using current data, real life examples, drawings, PowerPoints and short videos, Fr. Joe Mannath SDB will explain how we can (and must) take responsibility and grow up harmoniously in these five areas.
