What have you done for yourself since the New Year began? Can you believe we are half-way through our year? It is hard to imagine that there are 67 days until fall. Cooler temperatures will soon creep in, and before you know it we’ll be preparing for Thanksgiving. I should probably ask again, have you taken time to replenish, or fill your own tank? Have you carved out enough time to make YOU a priority?
Quite often, we become so engrossed in the lives of others which can leave a person feeling depleted. When you do not pause or take a personal inventory, you run the risk of neglecting your needs.
In Episode 15, Put Your Mask On First: Self Care And MS, we discuss ways to make sure you’re caring for yourself. When managing a chronic illness like Multiple Sclerosis, it is imperative that you remain a priority.
I know the term self care is seen everywhere these days and many go through the day uncertain about where to begin. We are left asking ourselves, how do I start? It is important to know that self care is not a selfish act, it is a necessity. Take a look at this checklist list we feel can help you manage your peace, pause and self care.
In addition to the checklist, peruse the article from Well + Good which highlighted Dawn recently. She discusses methods she takes to ensure caring for herself has become priority.
Talk to you on Episode 16!
Take care of you!
