Self-care is not Selfish

I had a conversation with someone I was coaching the other day. She characterized herself as being selfish (her word) because she wanted to create time in her new COVID driven work schedule for her well-being.


I challenged her:

You can practice self-care and not be selfish, ya' know.

Your other things will survive better if you survive better.


Here's a challenge for each of us:

Where can we include self-care in our daily and weekly schedule?

What will that look like?

When will you start?
