This is a time of crazy terms we never had to deal with before in our lifetimes:
- social distancing
- flatten the curve
- herd immunity
- PPE, N95, R95…..
- And who ever heard of Dr. Fauci?
New Buzzword: Self-Care
Being forced to deal with all that means we also need to take extra care of ourselves. We all need extra care as we are working so hard to cope and adapt to the uncertainty and changes all around us due to COVID-19.
Before all this, it used to seem like healthcare was critical but self-care was a luxury…like maybe a massage once a month.
Now self-care is not optional if you want to come through this in a positive, healthy way. Healthy to me includes: body, mind, emotions, energy, attitude and intentions.
What is Self-Care?
Time to Take Charge
- Love ourselves enough to know that we all need and deserve extra self-care at this time
- Be introspective and creative enough to figure out what we really need at this time (different for everyone, different day to day)
- Live consciously and stay committed to giving ourselves those things
