Pouring From an Empty Cup?
If you have a car, you know you have to take care of it; add gas and oil, get regular maintenance...
or it won’t work for you.
It’s even more true when it comes to caring for ourselves. Self-care is not selfish .
Being intentional about incorporating things that “fill your cup” everyday means you can be at your best:
And be able to help fill your children’s cups.
What brings you joy?
*a warm cup of coffee or tea
*prayer or meditation time
*a phone call to a friend
*time with your pet
*a song you love
*playing an instrument
*a warm bath
*a chapter of your book
Of course we want our kids to be kind to themselves. As caregivers, when we make time for ourselves we are modeling to our kids that self-care is important.
So, what will you do for your self-care plan?
