Self-Care is Not Optional

Don’t wait until you are burnt out or running on empty, before you make it a priority to take care of yourself. Anyone who has traveled by plane know that the attendant provides safety instructions to put on your oxygen mask on first, and then place the mask on the other person in the event of safety concerns. Yet, in our daily lives we place everything and everyone else as priority, and we do not address our basic needs and then wonder why we are angry, bitter, discouraged and depressed.

I challenge you to spend time with God first, take a moment to ponder on and take care of your personal needs, and then take care of everything and everyone else. Self care is not optional, it is necessary. (Matthew 6:33).
