Articles -- I will honor my needs
“I can only help others after my own needs are met. And so, in this space, I commit to honoring and taking care of my needs.”
As you move into a self-coaching mode, it’s important to give yourself permission to work towards your own personal happiness and to make that a priority
In an aircraft, you are told to put your own mask on before you help anyone else, and this applies to life in general. If you are over-tired or over-stressed, it will affect every aspect of your life and will also affect everyone you have contact with.
If you are healthy, fit an rested, you will be better able to be kind and helpful towards others; and if you are happy, that happiness is contagious.
Write down your self-coaching commitments and keep track of your progress. You may want to find an accountability partner who will call you out if you start to slip.
There will be challenges, and you may miss some sessions, but it’s important to keep trying. It is possible to honor your responsibilities and take care of yourself as well.
