How well do you take care of yourself? I know that this question might seem a little strange to HSPs, since our first inclination is to take care of others. We often place the needs of others above what we need.
Do you take the time to think about what you need? This is not being selfish. After all, you can’t give to others when your energy is depleted, either physically, emotionally, or both.
What would it take to “lighten your load?” Does your body get as much sleep as it needs? Are you saying “yes” to things that you want to say “no” to? What kinds of things would help you recharge your emotional and physical batteries? Do you skip these activities because of other priorities?
How well do you take care of yourself? I’m interested in any thoughts or comments that you have.
