Self-care is not selfish

03/   August, 2018

You can’t pour from an empty cup.

As we get ready to wind up summer and send our kids back to school, I am here to remind you to take care of yourself as well.

Maybe when I say that, you say to yourself, “Yes, I know, I will take care of myself.”

However, what I observe all too often is that people (women, in particular) are self-conscious or even self-critical about taking time for themselves. Many of us have a little voice (mine seems to be in my ear – maybe yours sits on your shoulder) that expresses disapproval if I say “no” to an invitation, or if I leave work on time to get to an aerobics class at the gym.

Dr. Liz has authored and co-authored several books, with a fourth book to be released soon. Be the first to know!
