This is for my girls who like to give, give, give and give. Your hearts are full of love that you just have to spread it around. You give even when you do not have it to give. This can be applied to monetary purposes but in this case, I am referring to your emotional and mental wellness. Do you all pay attention to the flight attendant’s instruction on an airplane?: During an emergency, put on your oxygen mask before you help the other person. Who knew that piece of advice could be used in your daily life! It is our natural instinct to nurture and care for those around us. Being so caring is not a bad thing but it can be bad if you are not taking care of yourself first. How can you help someone if you are not helping yourself? YOU are YOUR Number 1 responsibility. No one is going to remind you to make sure You got You!
Ladies, make sure you are looking out for your well-being. I am a big advocate for self-care. In a nutshell, self-care is about treating yourself as kindly as you treat others.
Here are some self-care tips to try:
- Keep a daily journal to jot down your feelings.
- Listen to music you enjoy.
- Read an interesting book.
- Walk in nature.
- Say daily affirmations.
- Practice meditation.
- Watch a good movie.
- See a therapist/counselor.
- Do something fun with friends.
