“Taking care of yourself is the most powerful way to begin to take care of others.” – Bryant McGill, author, activist and social entrepreneur

It’s important to prioritize self-care, both now and in the future. As we move beyond the pandemic, let’s make sure we’re taking care of ourselves as well as we’ve cared for others. Self-care isn’t just about getting enough rest – it’s about nourishing our minds, bodies, and spirits. Here are a few examples:

  • Making sure we get enough sleep
  • Eating nutritious foods
  • Staying active through exercise
  • Relaxing and unwinding
  • Reducing stress

By prioritizing self-care, we’re able to be better caregivers to our patients and loved ones. Remember, you can’t pour from an empty cup. For additional information on the topic, consider visiting the following websites:
