Self-Care is Not Selfish

Are you taking time for self-care? If you’ve been short-changing the most important person in your life, take a moment close your eyes, take 10 deep breaths, and reflect upon what you need in the self-care department.
When you are done with your 10th breath, write down three steps you can take to rectify the situation. Cover the basics. Do you:
  • Sleep enough?
  • Eat nutritious foods?
  • Exercise regularly?
  • Keep medical appointments?
  • Relax/meditate?
  • Practice positive self-talk?
  • Draw healthy boundaries?
Remember this wisdom shared by Dr. Lisa Graham at the Momentum conference:
“Selfish is putting your own want ahead of others’ needs. Self-care is putting your own needs ahead of others’ wants.”
We’ve got more self-care strategies on our YouTube channel, including this one with Momentum alum Dr. Cheri Canon.
