The value of relationships by Dr. Munn Saechao, PsyD, LCSW, PPSC, online therapist and coach for professional women and child and adolescent therapist in Mountain View, CA.
It’s often so hard for professional women with family expectations to carve out time for themselves. They often feel tremendous guilt over longing for a bit of alone time. It’s important though to make time for self-care, because this will allow you to be more available for those who need you most (family, friends, patients, etc.). The truth is, when you’re not well, it’s hard to be fully present with your loved ones.
Self-care is not selfish, it’s actually, selfless. I know it’s such a different way of thinking about this concept, but when you prioritize your mental, emotional and physical well being, you will not only be better for yourself, but for your loved ones.
What’s your favorite self-care activities? I would love to hear from you. 🤗
