Listen guys, I get it…. We need to be strong, flexible, responsible, versatile, and always there for our partners, kids, bosses, co-workers, and even the sweet old neighbor that needs too much help.
But when does the superhero, Mr. “everything”, need to just take a step back and catch their breath? Should Mr. dependable even need to be bothered by such trivial matters?
My fellow fellas, please remember that burnout is real!
Think of it this way; even if you don’t think that you need to engage in self-care, wouldn’t a recharged superhero be a more effective Mr. Dependable-Everything?
During Movember I implore you to take a moment and engage in real self-care. Whether it means you finally go in for that physical that you’ve been putting off; making sure you actually create a realistic work-life balance; start and adhere to a better diet and exercise routine; or simply smile more, love more, and truly enjoy the “worlds” that you work so hard to protect.
Take good care fellow superheroes!
