Truth be told, life can feel so challenging and overwhelming with everything we are facing personally in our day to day lives along with the turmoil we are facing as a nation and in the world at large.
Our battles aren’t just internal. All we have to do is turn on the news and the world seems to be falling apart. Feelings of hopelessness, shock and despair seem to be a part of our daily lives as we are bombarded with endless noise and division.
So many of us are questioning ourselves. Am I doing enough? Am I enough? Am I broken if I’m feeling anxious or depressed? Am I living my life to the best of my ability? What more can I do? Am I contributing?
The most important question you can ask yourself today is how can I best take care of myself today? How do I make self-care a priority?
Self-care is more important now more than ever. You must make yourself a priority so that you can create the energy to sustain and thrive in your life personally, emotionally physically, spiritually and professionally.
