Women are not very good at self care. Mothers are horrible at self care. Doulas, and others in the compassion and service fields, are even worse at self care.
When you truly look at yourself, are you willing to say that you are important? That your health matters? That without self care you cannot go on? I wasn’t so I pushed more!
How do you rest? What does that even look like? Let me tell you, it is not one 2 hour afternoon on the beach. That may help for a moment but not long term.
