Self Care

As a school counselor I know that when I take a little time to care for myself I’m better able to care for others.  It’s a pretty simple concept, but not always so easy to implement.  We get busy.  There is a to do list–or multiple to do lists–and we get pushed to the bottom.  Well, today I took time to have breakfast with my friend, Molly, and then we got our nails done.  Now, this is something that I seldom take the time or money to do.  But after just a couple of hours away I feel refreshed.  I am meeting the challenges of the day with a smile.  Make sure that every once in a while you take the time to do something that makes you feel special.  Not only will you benefit from it, but the people in your life will benefit from it as well.
