Self Care as Breath


Thank you for this insightful way of looking at self care. I am in agreement that we in the helping profession have to shift from teaching application of self care in emergent situations, to teaching self care in daily life.

I have actually decided to practice only part time because taking care of me is so essential to the livelihood of my well being and my family flourishing. We have to first be committed to effectiveness, no matter how unconventional it looks to others.

Great thoughts

Hi Erlene,
So good to "see you" as it were...There's some great wisdom and insight in this. I like the idea of self-care as breath vs. just a mask as we all must breathe and have breath to continue living. Thanks for the new way of looking at and communicating self-care to my clients, and me ;)

Self care

I agree that self care should be a way of life, as essential as the air we breathe. I have learned this as a foster care case manager even more so. Thank you for these moments of wisdom from the field.
