When I talk to struggling gals, one of the first questions I ask is, “How’s your self-care?”
This usually results in tears and/or a litany about the busyness of life.
And, I guess that’s the point. If we are not careful we fill our days and don’t make time to take care of our ourselves. We get tired and frazzled. We’re not at our best and life slides into exhaustion and chaos.
Slow down. Think it through. Make a list of all the must-do’s (put self-care on the list) and begin to say no to everything else for awhile. With a little trial and error, find a good balance between work, play and rest. You really don’t have to do it all.
Make time for those things that refresh you, that feed your soul.
Self-care is not selfish. You cannot serve from an empty vessel. Eleanor Brownn
