Self-Care

Author: Kimberly N. Powell, DDS, MS, FAGD

It seems that the needs of others will always come before yours. It happens so routinely that we fail to recognize it. In order to be the best for the people in our lives…our family, staff, employees, employer, students, patients, we have to carve out time to be the best to ourselves. A bit of time to reenergize, to pause, to worship, to workout, to take a mental health break, to mend our bodies is needed. When you think about it, we can replace cars, houses, jobs, but we were given one body, I guess it was meant to last a lifetime…let’s take care of it.
