Self-care used to be one of those topics that I didn’t know of but found out that I practiced frequently. I found myself happier, more rested, and balanced in every area of my life.
Right now I am experiencing burn out. I try to practice some self-care but scheduling the “me” time seems like more work. This needs to change and will change. Scheduling “me time” will be a priority.
There is a self -care wheel from OlgaPhoenix that suggests we have 6 areas on the wheel. The areas are physical, professional, psychological, emotional, spiritual and personal. Within each area there are several examples of what self care looks like. Upon closer reflection I will need to revisit the wheel and start again in order to relieve burnout. I hope you join me on the journey of self-care.
