Put on your Oxygen Mask First

Self-Care is the vital oxygen that sustains our well being amidst life's turbulence. It is the profound act of nourishing our mind, body, and spirit. Far from selfish, self-care is an act of wisdom and compassion towards oneself, recognizing that only when we are replenished we can navigate the demands of the world around us. Much like the instructions on an airplane remind us to secure our own oxygen mask before assisting others, prioritizing self-care is an essential step towards or ability to care for others with authenticity and strength. In honoring our own needs, we cultivate a deeper capacity to contribute positively to our world. Self-care is not only a necessity but a collective imperative.
