Put yourself on this year's priority list

Posted

We have all heard the story of the earnest worker who diligently battled every day at the job in anticipation of a carefree retirement. Instead of the carefree retirement, the worker suffered a severe injury which rendered him unable to enjoy any retirement at all.

We are all so busy that we often ignore the signals our body sends us that something needs attention. It’s like the automatic caution lights on our dashboards that warn of transmission trouble. To ignore these signs, creates dangerous driving situations and to ignore your body can eventually put you at risk of serious illness or injury.

So, how do we address this problem? Changing the way we do things can be very stressful but, learning new ways to cope with these situations can certainly help us make some changes. Learning to delegate can be an effective coping tool. Asking others to help and discussing different ways to handle problems gives us a different perspective to resolve the problem at hand. Caring for ourselves can even include making an appointment with a counselor to discuss and deal with our own personal problems or problem relationships with others.

We often think of ourselves as “indispensable”. No one can do the job, but us. We learn that no one is indispensable and when illness or serious injury occurs we are forced to acknowledge our own limitations.

Now is the time to take care of those health problems we have been ignoring. Those problems can include anything from a suspicious mole on our back to dental needs that we have ignored for too long.

As working women, we often put ourselves at the bottom of our priority list.  “Take it to heart” and today put yourself at the top of your priority list and enjoy your life!
