What Have You Done For Yourself Lately?


What Have You Done For Yourself Lately?
The most important part of being in a relationship is to engage in self-care.

So, what does it mean to “put on my oxygen mask”? Again using the pie chart analogy, use the visual to identify what it would mean to create balance in your life. What would you need to change? Identify your physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual, and recreation needs. Particularly focusing on physical needs like sleep, exercise and healthy eating; emotional support, social activities and taking time for fun because they tend to be the first sacrificed. Break this down in to smaller pieces and make small, sometimes very small, goals to get even one step closer to achieving your “ideal pie chart” is a great way to start this process. The most important thing to recognize is that no one can do this for us, so we need to be our own advocate and in some ways, put ourselves first because only then will we truly be of service to others.
