September is often a hectic time. For those with younger children, school shopping, sports, homework, conferences and all the chaos that comes with the start of school add stress to life. For those with college-age kids, packing up the mini fridge, books, clothes and electronics and saying “goodbye” brings a different kind of stress. And for those without children living at home? Everyday life comes with its own chronic stresses, whether from work, family obligations or physical injury or illness.
Often, the last person that we make time for is our self. But, you can’t be any good to others if you aren’t good to yourself first.
