Pamper yourself as part of your journey. Living healthy is not only eating healthy. It includes an overall regimen of treating yourself well.
I recently spoke on this topic for the Rochester Area Administrators of Volunteer Service, (RAAVS) for their annual conference. Caretakers are so focused on the people around them.
They know the needs, preferences and values of everyone they spend time with. They usually don’t tune into their own needs, wants and desires. Why? It isn’t because they don’t know how. They are experts at making people comfortable. They are nurturing and loving with exact precision to every detail.
I think self-care is rarely an afterthought because the list of people to take care of is long. Caretakers will wait until everyone has been served. Then they will realized they are drained and crash only to do it all over again.
Don’t fall into the trap of postponing self-care until everyone around you is happy. Make this your season! Time for you to love, honor and nurture you!
This series is on self-care. What it means, how to do it and creating a healthy you from the inside out.
