May, as you may have heard, is National Mental Health Awareness Month. In a society where being a productive, active, and healthy individual is so very important to each and every one of us, it can be easy to forget to take care of ourselves. Where taking the time out of the day to stop and ask yourself, ‘What do I need today?’ is seen as a waste of precious time that we could be getting more work done instead. But the thing is, BECAUSE we live in this society, it’s more important now than ever to take time for yourself and to evaluate your needs, because if you don’t, who will?
Take care of yourself FIRST.
