Self-Care is Critical. You Can’t Help Others if You Require Help Yourself by Javnyuy Joybert

See eeh,


Self-care is critical. You can’t help others if you require help yourself.


I’m a firm believer that parents, leaders, Entrepreneurs, Executives will perform at their best, on all levels, when they are comfortable integrating essential self-care into their lives.


Really what do I mean self care?


Self-care is any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Although it’s a simple concept in theory, it’s something we very often overlook. Good self-care is key to improved mood and reduced anxiety. It’s also key to a good relationship with oneself and others. (According to PsychCentral)


Look, In the corporate and business world,

When leaders, Executives and Entrepreneurs fail to take care of themselves, they reduce their ability to be productive. They make more mistakes, and the quality of work suffers. Naturally, these issues can extend to employees, and their work suffers as well.

Hyatt defines self-care as “the activities that make for a meaningful life outside of work, while contributing to better performance at work.” Read that sentence again. These self-care activities are actually workplace performance enhancers. The list of activities that constitute self-care includes getting enough sleep (this doesn’t mean you should sleep your success away with too much sleep), eating properly, exercising, quality time with Bae, Boo, Wifey, Hubby, Kids, parents (people you love), meaningful hobbies and having time for personal reflection.


To quote Hyatt: “The bigger your vision, the more you have to prioritize self-care”. Amen.


Truth is I got to learn about self care like 4 years ago but I told the expert these words “This is important but not necessary at this stage of my life” when I said this i was still a one army Entrepreneur and working 14 to 20 hours a day 7 days a week. I had serious goals I had to achieve. Now that my business has systems, clear processes and a growing team self care has a place 😀. Please this is me ooh, do what works for you. Entrepreneurs….ok na


My benediction will be this,

On a basic level, self-care is about understanding that our bodies, minds, hearts, and spirits all have needs that cannot be denied without consequence.


Self care is not selfishness.


Take care of yourself this month guys and every other month. Cheers


Happy New month
