What does self-care mean to you? How hard to you push yourself before you take a break? No matter what your profession may be, it’s very important to take some time to take care of yourself and recharge your batteries. This includes being more compassionate to oneself and not being overly critical. New research indicates that people don’t take the time for self-care in our society for fear of becoming self-indulgent. An article in the New York Times, quotes
Dr. Kristin Neff, an associate professor of human development at the University of Texas at Austin who states, that people “believe self-criticism is what keeps them in line. Most people have gotten it wrong because our culture says being hard on yourself is the way to be.”
