Taking Care of Others Has to Include You

Alongside our care for others, we also need to care for ourselves.

Humans are inherently social and collaborative.

Our urge to tend to the community’s needs has been part of how we’ve survived as a species. For centuries, we have protected and supported one another.

Whether you’re homeschooling children, working from home, or supporting friends and family members who are struggling with overwhelm and anxiety, the instinct to care is a beautiful part of what it means to be human.

But you might have noticed that sometimes your identity can become so wrapped up in caring for others that you forget to take care of one very important person: yourself.

Alongside our care for others, we also need to care for ourselves.

Experience a few moments of soothing self-care with “Self Compassion for Difficult Times”.

Led by our co-host, Melli O’Brien, this free meditation will show you how to practice internal kindness even when the world around you is chaotic and overwhelming.
