Self-Care: Before caring for anyone else, you must care for yourself.
The MCAT, the standardized medical entrance exam created by the Association of American Colleges, changed my life. The amount of discipline and true dedication necessary to achieve an excelling score was actually CRAZY. But from it I learned the true essence of self-care. No matter what profession it is you are passionate about, it is key to take time to yourself every day. It looks different for everyone. I love drinking coffee and writing in my planner in the mornings in order to prepare for the day ahead. Sometimes it may feel selfish to take time to yourself, but your mental health is more important. I hope I can make you feel less guilty and more proud that you’re taking your psyche into your own hands!
