Help Yourself Before Helping Others

If you want to help others, you need to take care of yourself first. You will never be the best that you can be around other people if you constantly distract yourself and avoid taking care of yourself. Many people, including me at times, focus on helping everyone but himself or herself. While you may think that this is a form of generosity, you are really being selfish to yourself and delaying the inevitable crash and burn.

Take the time to be alone often and reflect. Meditating is a great think to do daily, but not the only option. I like to take evening walks before going to bed each night. It really helps clear my head so that I do not lie in bed thinking at full speed (Hate when that happens). The only drawback is that I don't like being dirty before bed so I gotta take a shower, but that is another story. Another thing that I like to do , but not always doing as much, is cruising in water (pool is okay, but the ocean is best). The view and feel of the water, in addition to being relaxing to the mind and body, reminds me that possibilities in life are endless.

Get rid of the distractions and the chaos in your life for a few minutes and find clarity, find your center.
