I teach parents that their example is the most important in their child or teen's life. So with that said, I find it important to set an example for you as well. How can I teach you to take care of yourself, if I don't take care of myself. Right? I compare this to going to the doctor and the doctor lecturing you about being overweight, but yet they are overweight themselves and visually not taking care of themselves. Or the family member who lectures you about smoking when they chew tobacco or drink heavily. It's so important to be an example of what you are teaching, and I try to do this in my own work.
Watch the video below to learn different ways I take care of myself and what I use to cope in life! (This is also a good example of going with the flow and not being a perfectionist.)
Have a great weekend!
