Take care of your body, it’s the only place you have to live.
There is much to be said about self-care. It is so very important to make sure that you make time for YOU. If you don’t take care of yourself, and constantly give, give, give to others, you’ll eventually burn out. You cannot pour from an empty cup. It can be difficult for some of us, to put our own needs ahead of others, especially our families’ needs. But we must make the time and effort. Make the time to go to the gym. Make the effort to do your meal prep. Carve out some space just for you, even if it’s just 5 minutes of stress-relief coloring before bed.
Making time for yourself might sound selfish, but what it really does is give you the energy, the vitality to give the very best of yourself to those you love most!
