You can’t pour from an empty cup
You can’t pour from an empty cup. Take care of yourself first.
If you do not look after yourself before everything and anyone else, then you will crash and burn.
Doing everything that needs to get done, all that you want to achieve, helping others – none of it will happen, you will burn you out in the process – if you do not take good care of yourself.
What I’m talking about are the basics – sleep, nutrition and exercise – they’re absolutely foundational. And If you’re a bit of an over-thinker, a do-er, a future focused person (like me ;), then in addition to those basics, meditation is the single best thing you can do for yourself. It will support you both emotionally and physically, and help keep you sane in the process.
What is one thing you can do this week to take better care of yourself?
