Do you have a self-care program? A system where you take time to prioritize yourself or have you chosen to sacrifice your well-being for others?
You’re probably familiar with the overplayed airline message of ‘put on your own mask before attempting to help others,’ but there is so much truth to this.
If you don’t take invest time in self-care then not only are you less effective for yourself, but also towards those whom you want to help.
When you prioritize caring for yourself not only will you benefit mentally and physically, you will also reap psychological and emotional benefits too.
Self-care doesn’t have to consist of hours of self-indulgence; it can be accomplished in just a few minutes a day. A few minutes set aside to breathe, to think, to move, to eat right all in order to replenish and rejuvenate your mind and body which will ultimately do wonders for you.
