Maybe you don’t go to the doctor? Many times in the past, when our stress feels like a pounding headache or an upset stomach, we feel driven to skip the healing quiet time at home and instead, we scan, scan, scan the internet for updates and answers. Does this ever-vigilant impulse using technology feel like self-care, or is it adding gasoline to an emotional fire?
During hectic or difficult times, we need to care for ourselves as a first priority. That looks like moving our bodies, getting restful sleep, eating regularly the wholesome food we need, taking time to rest and relax, and preserving our boundaries. Do you have time for this?
“Far from being selfish, I know you to be one of the most caring people on this planet.” Georgianne Holland

While the future of the health care system in America is unknown today, many of us have doctors that we trust and look to for our wellness care. These primary care physicians are important and I wish for you an amazing doctor-patient relationship. Perhaps you don’t have a doctor? I urge all women to think about the Homemade Health steps they can take to safeguard self-care habits.
It is helpful to consider each area of our life and assess what might be off-balance. We can then look at the areas that need more attention and take notice of the areas that are feeding us, as well as areas of your life that you are grateful for. Once you have identified the areas that need attention, it’s time to plan the actions needed to regain balanced living. We can all encourage one another, even our doctors, to take these steps!
The most resilient people in the world practice extreme self-care as their primary care. This resilience is built by taking good care of yourself and treating yourself as kindly as you treat others. When we are on our priority list, our effectiveness in the larger world grows! It’s not selfish to want to feel amazing. It is not selfish to limit the impact of this 24/7 technology-centered American lifestyle. When we’re at our best, we can give our best.
