Top 10 Reasons Why Good Self-Care is Savvy (and Not Selfish!)

b2ap3_thumbnail_Top-10-List.jpgI'll let you in on a secret. There are some folks out there (maybe you're even one of them) with a persistent notion that good self-care is....indulgent. They might hesitate to say it outright, but secretly they feel a little guilty about really taking care of themselves.

They feel like they have to earn self-care — or that they'll eventually get around to taking care of themselves once everything else is done and everyone else's needs are handled.

Perhaps they are a afraid that people won't like or respect them if they don't put their own needs last.

So, if you know anyone like this, I hope that you'll share this Top 10 List of Reasons Self-Care is Savvy (with apologies to David Letterman)!

10. If you don't take him for a walk, your dog might get grumpy.

9. If you don't take a walk, you might get grumpy.

8. You want to stick around to spend your children's inheritance.

7. Martyrs only become famous after they're dead.

6. You'd rather spend your retirement visiting China than getting check-ups.

5. You still haven't gotten started on your "Bucket List".

4. You need more material for that juicy memoir you're planning to write.

3. You want to keep up with your current (or future) grandchildren.

2. You're the world's leading (and only) expert in the Art of Your Self-Care.

1. You are the only "you" that there is and the world needs you to fulfill your purpose.

All kidding aside, I invite you to consider that you are a unique gift to this world, and you are the only one that can offer what you have to give. But...you can't give out of an empty bucket. Your well-being is essential to your ability to be your best self.

So, in the words of Mary Oliver: "Tell me, what is it that you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"

I'd love to hear what reasons are on your top 10 list. Please share your ideas below!

Love this. Thank you for helping me see the difference between these 2 concepts! Easy to get them confused as a mother, professional, and many other roles!!

Thanks for the feedback, Eileen (and sorry I missed it until now!) Those of us who are professional caregivers are notorious for finding this challenging. Maybe that's why we're so passionate about helping folks break free of limiting beliefs! Thanks for all you do
