You are overwhelmed at work, have unattended to chores at home and a calendar full of engagements. When we’re stressed, self care is usually the first thing to go. But that only compounds the problem.
The word “self care” seems so indulgent, especially if you were raised with the idea that hard work pays off. But taken too far, that motto is actually counterprductive. You lose focus. Your skills aren’t as sharp. Your working hard but you’re not working efficiently.
Self care actually helps you make progress faster for a few reasons:
* It prevents “overload burnout”
* Self care reduces the negative effects of stess so that you can
function at full capacity.
* Self care help you refocus. Studies show that taking a break
actually help you perform better.
Therapeutic massage is self care. Not only does it make you feel and perform better….it feels good.
