We are at the end of the school year and I am writing about self-care. Everyday that I am at work and even when the day is done, I think about others feelings and well being before my own. This is my job and it is what I love to do. However, I forget about my own needs and here I am sick again. Instead of wallow in my own sickness-this is the 4th time I’ve been sick this year-I want to remind you that is okay to take care of yourself. Remember, to get that extra hour of sleep, take vitamins, exercise, eat healthy and enjoy something that is just for you. Every year I promise myself I am going to do all of these things and this just might be the year. I do not like being away from my office and students. I have to be honest with myself and I do have asthma so I need to stay home and rest. I can be more preventative and take care of myself. I am making a trip to get those vitamins!
