Self-Care

Self care doesn’t always look like massages, and therapy.

Often, it’s paying your bills to get it off your mind. Organizing your office to create an environment of sanity. Putting on your favorite outfit, dancing in front of the mirror or meeting your friends for lunch.

A few years ago when I started to notice a bit of compassion fatigue, I revamped my schedule.

Compassion fatigue refers to the emotional and physical exhaustion that can result from caring for others, particularly in demanding or stressful situations. It's important for caregivers and helpers to recognize the signs of compassion fatigue and prioritize self-care to prevent burnout. Taking breaks, seeking support, and setting boundaries are essential in managing compassion fatigue effectively.

I put a giant boundary around a day of the week that had once marked the beginning of a long week, and it became my favorite day of the week.

It is my self care day.

It became a springboard to a week full of helping other humans.

I worried it would mean a step back in my practice....and it actually created a fuller, more focused practice.

What is in your self care plan?

What is the recipe you work for optimum mental health?

When do you, focus on you?
