Have you ever really stopped to think about what self-care means?
As women, we somehow developed a definition of self-care that means it is all-consuming and either-or.
This definition says that taking care of yourself requires all of your time, focus, energy and attention to the exclusion of everyone and everything or you don’t give yourself any time and all of your time, focus, energy, and attention is given to everything and everyone but you.
Neither of these extremes are healthy.
Perhaps what you really need is a new definition of self-care that makes sense.
