Self-care, the concept is an odd idea for some who work non-stop to create better reality for their families, friends, local community, nation and the world. It is this little page’s job to serve as a reminder that if we, as volunteers, don’t take care of ourselves, there is no taking care of anyone else and as a result no changes can be made.
The Reminders Tips (Like Your Momma taught you):
- Eat well –
Eat at least one set of food that is considered an actual meal where you eat with others.
- Drink water –
Given humans are made up of mostly water, it is the best thing to keep you healthy.
- Rest –
A nap or good night’s sleep does wonders to refresh body and soul.
- Play –
Focus on your service area is a fabulous thing but playing in another discipline can add new life and perspective to your thinking. Let your mind grow.
