Personal care is the opportunity to put yourself first. In a world where there are always competing responsibilities, we all need to stop and think about our own well being. The essence of personal care involves optimum physical, mental, spiritual, social, and financial health. When we are operating at capacity and treating our body as machines and not taking care of our minds, our health suffers. What can you change today about how you live your daily life? Slowing down can actually make your more effective. What will you do for yourself today so that you can be most effective for your loved ones? We can't pour from an empty cup.
