Self-care is huge for me. Not "huge" as in, I spend enough time doing it but "huge" as in I need to get better at it. It is probably the biggest lesson of my life - seriously. Both my parents were incredibly bad at taking care of themselves (in different ways) and their guidance in self-care was virtually nil. I've had to learn to eat right; exercise; take care of my money, and figure out what a good relationship looks like through a painful process of trial and error.
This graphic came across my Pinterest feed and I think it's worth sharing. I can see that I'm great at some things (reading and relaxing with companion animals? NO PROBLEM) while others (saying no to extra responsibilities sometimes) are more of a challenge. A helpful visual tool for setting priorities for the next stage of life.
