Don’t Wait to Look and Feel Great
When you hear the term "self-care", do you think ‘selfish’?
Do you consistently put the needs of others before your basic needs for good nutrition, exercise, sleep and socialization? Do you ever ask yourself why you do this?
A common problem for many women is "Over-Care" — nurturing others to the extent that they have no time or energy to nurture themselves. This helps no one in the long run! Ever notice that in the airplane safety demonstrations we are told to “Put your oxygen mask on first, before turning to help someone else”? If you are not conscious, you will not be able to help anyone else get off that plane after an emergency landing!
A recent article in Psychology Today — "The Beauty of Benign Neglect" — discusses how "regularly stepping in to protect maturing kids from stress — or assuming they need you at all times in order to feel secure — may hurt them in the long run". Find balance in all of your relationships!
Modeling good self-care is one of the best things we can do for our children, friends and family. Connecting with Wellness provides counseling and coaching opportunities to help you identify and resolve issues blocking your own self-care.
Participate in our Don't Wait to Look and Feel Great! series. Classes on yoga, nutrition, exercise and other wellness topics will give you self-care knowledge and skills. Can’t say “no” to requests for your time? Learn how to set appropriate boundaries in your relationships. Change is possible!
