Priorities. We all have them. And we all have different ones. Mine involve taking care of myself first. I’ve found out, by tough trial and error, that if I don’t, everything else falls by the wayside. Just one example: if I don’t eat well, or get enough sleep, and I get sick, who’s going to mind the store?
It’s the old oxygen mask analogy. If I don’t keep myself alive, who’s going to keep the kids alive?
Self-care is not selfish. It’s good common sense.
Because everyone benefits.
