“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.”Maya Angelou
We all need time to rejuvenate ourselves and find ways to care and have a little ‘me time’.
Take time for yourself. You’re not very useful if you’re massively stressed out. Do you really want to keep trying to push yourself and create when you’re energy tanks are at 60%?
Give your body and mind what it needs. If you get energy from being around other people, then call up some close friends and plan a get-together. Or if you get energized by being alone with yourself, then be alone. Schedule it if you have too.
If you find this selfishly indulgent, or difficult because there’s way too much to do for you to take a break, then consider that you’re priorities are out of alignment.
It’s like oxygen masks on a plane. We must first put our own oxygen on before we can begin to really help others.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
