Lately, I’ve been feeling like that one meme about a dog sitting in a café that’s on fire. You know the one—he’s drinking coffee and saying, “This is fine.” But, the truth is, it’s not fine. It’s not even close. It’s okay not to be okay.
Now, more than ever, is an important time to get into the habit of checking in with yourself. The purpose of a self-check in is to ensure that you’re catering to your needs, whether physical, emotional, spiritual, social, etc.
Ask yourself what you need, answer with honesty, and take action to fulfill those requests—as soon as possible. You’re worth it.
