Scheduling Self-Care

As I sit this morning waiting for my internship to start I am reminded again of the importance of self-care.

It is the second week in October and I am beginning to feel as though the semester is kicking my butt (have no fear, I have amazing support and know this will pass).

Sleep patterns have been disturbed and many classmates are getting sick.

Yesterday we had a guest lecturer in my supervision class, Robert Macy, who spoke of the burnout rate in new practioners.

What I took from that and from how I am feeling is that self-care can't just happen on the weekend or if you take a vacation. It needs to happen every day.

Goal for this week, do 5 minutes of self-care a day. Although this may not seem like a lot it is a realistic goal.
