You can’t seem to catch your breath. You have deadlines piling up; you have clutter piling up at home; and your friends are complaining that they never see you. There is so much pressure to be everything to everyone that you struggle to be something meaningful for yourself.
Self-care is the victim of our fast-paced, to-do-list-obsessed, and achievement-driven society. We take on too much because doing more has become the standard. But, researchers and doctors agree, it’s not sustainable and is taking a toll on our health both mentally and physically.
It’s time to make yourself a priority. Self-care doesn’t mean you are being selfish or putting responsibilities on to others. When you take the time to care for yourself, you are making sure you are better able to care for others.
