The truth about self-care is that sticking to it absolutely sucks. No one is inherently good at self-care and I am certainly not going to say that I follow what I tell my students, peers, and sometimes even supervisors.
Self-care is conflicting with our nature to help. As people in the helping professions we are often the last people we help in our lineups. We have priorities, responsibilities, and often times we have more than conflicting archetype to fit under while struggling to manage these dichotomous and child-like notions to not help ourselves. In reality we must always help ourselves because we cannot do what we do when we can barely stand to function physically, emotionally, socially, etc! Be your own helper and help yourself. Take time during this break to just be present and have some you time. You deserve it.
