ADULTS, PUT YOUR OXYGEN MASK ON FIRST ADULTS, PUT YOUR OXYGEN MASK ON FIRST

When you think about this it makes sense, if you put your oxygen mask on first then you are in a great position to be able to assist others who need it. Therefore, it is the exact opposite of a selfish act to put on your oxygen mask first. And, many would say that self-care is the exact same way. If you don’t take care of yourself first, you are in no position – physically, mentally, or emotionally – to take care of anyone else.

Somewhere while reading this you may start to feel guilty that your taking care of yourself first is taking time away from your daily jobs, family, work, pets, etc. This is when you need to take a step back and realize the importance of your job as a caregiver. They need you to be healthy, here and available to them. So, self-care has to be a priority.
