A new school year has arrived, you and your coworkers are coming down from the summer vacation highs, or maybe you’re newly retired! And if all that wasn’t enough, you may find yourself playing the role of the caregiver as well. As our lives get busier and the expectations we and others place on ourselves become heavier, it’s easy to forget the importance of our own physical and mental well-being.

Home Care Roswell GA – September is Self-Care Awareness Month

As a caregiver, whether for your children, spouse/partner, or aging family members, we can sometimes feel that taking some time for ourselves can feel selfish and a sense of guilt can settle over us. You may be familiar with the saying “You can’t pour from an empty cup”? Well, the saying is absolutely true. You cannot continue to give the best version of yourself to those that need you if you are not in turn taking care of yourself.

When you hear the term “self-care” you may immediately think of massages, spa days, a round of golf, sending all non-emergency calls to voicemail…the list goes on. But the list for self-care options can be endless!

Socialworker.com offers a wonderful list of self-care suggestions for each day of the month of September. It was released in 2021 but the content still rings true.

Additionally, Modern Minds offers an article and guidance on checking in with yourself or conducting, what they refer to as a “cup check”.
