The best way for me to take care of others is to first take good care of myself. I believe that my life choices dictate how I treat others. My focus is to enjoy life to the fullest!
I give myself the best opportunities available for a healthy, positive life, especially in today's times.
Yes, I am aware that getting enough rest is essential. It allows me to be in a good frame of mind and to treat others well, being a good example for my kids. When I am tired, I can get really cranky and unfriendly. I prefer to be warm and welcoming to my friends and family... and they will confirm they prefer it that way too.
I take the time to address my own needs. I also realize that others may have the same needs. I am more in tune with how to help my loved ones when I treat myself well. I take the time to listen to my inner voice. Whenever I need a break from work, I take it.
Avoiding neglecting my own needs and treating myself the way I deserve to be treated is best. I require special treatment. At times, I convince myself that special treatment is overrated. But then I see that others need special treatment from me.
Today, I understand why it is important to take good care of myself so I can take good care of others. I commit to being kind to my mind, body, and soul. I am a sincere, beautiful person capable of helping others.
