Are you familiar with the airline safety instructions about putting on your oxygen mask first before assisting others? This episode of our podcast delves into this analogy to highlight the importance of self-care and the potential dangers of neglecting oneself. If we don't take care of ourselves, if we don't put our oxygen mask on first, we may find ourselves feeling depleted, overwhelmed, and ill. We might snap at people, feel stuck, or struggle with chronic fatigue and other health issues. I hope this podcast episode serves as a wake-up call to prioritize self-care and embrace resilience. Remember, the first step towards caring for others effectively is caring for ourselves.
