Giving myself medicine first

There is a process during Choices training where we focus on the importance of taking care of ourselves first in order to be able to take care of others.

I’m practising giving myself medicine first today.

For the past two days at the office there has been little heat coming out of the vents. Even with a space heater by my feet, (which I can’t put on full because it blows the fuses)  my body has been chilled and I am feeling the worse for the constant chill that has crept into my bones. I came home early yesterday, climbed under a kazillion blankets (okay — maybe just 3). C.C. made me tea, I slept and read and still, I have not regained my equilibrium. My body aches, my nose is running and I am under the weather.

Time to take care of me.

And, because my mind is foggyish, instead of writing a post, I’m sharing what I found to be an inspiring and hopeful video about well-being and medical outcomes . I’ll be back up and at ’em tomorrow.

May your day be filled with honouring your worth. May your thoughts be filled with joy and may each moment unfold in the beauty and wonder of all you are shining out for all the world to see.

I’ve started using it to post my daily columns. Have a look at :

    get well and stay warm.
