How are you doing? I mean really.
Between the humanitarian crisis unfolding before our eyes in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, the wildfires in California, Trump’s constant online and offline bullying, ignorance and cruelty, and the recent news of Harvey Weinstein’s decades long brutality towards women, it gets to be too much.
There have been several posts that I planned to do over the past few weeks, but didn’t have the time and emotional energy to do them. But I do have a tried and true method of self-care.
In health care, self-care is any necessary human regulatory function which is under individual control, deliberate and self-initiated.
I don’t have a pet, but find myself drawn towards cute little dogs.
There are three dogs on Instagram that I go to for comfort when I find myself feeling overwrought. If you follow me on twitter, you can probably guess the timing!
We are 100 days from having survived a year.
SELF-CARE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER.
We are our greatest strength.#RESIST
