Self-care

Self-care is not selfish.

Self-care is not just a day at a spa although that would be wonderful.

It is emotional, physical, psychological, and spiritual health.

Self-care is my word for 2021

Every year I select a word that I use to exemplify my goals and priorities for the year.

The past two years I have used calm and simplify,

As a caregiver I have been placing some of my needs last.

Doing so its beginning to take a toll.

I know better!

I know if I do not take care of myself I will eventually have trouble taking care of my loved ones in need.

Yet despite knowing, I choose to put myself last.

I have been doing that for a long time.

It has become a habit.

But habits can be modified.

So I hired myself a coach, a health and wellness coach. I will be working on my emotional, physical, psychological, and spiritual health.

I am not waiting for the new year. We started this week.

This is not a new year’s resolution. It a lifetime resolution.

What is your word for the new year?

HartFelt wishes that you take care of yourself so you can take care of others in times of need.
