Well, we are back to Monday morning again, but instead of going to each client as I normally would, I have a client this morning and then will not be seeing clients until dinnertime and then this evening again. The reason that I am putting off most of my morning clients is because I have to actually take care of myself today. I am heading toward my doctor’s office for a routine checkup.
So many caregivers ignore themselves mentally, physically, spiritually and psychologically. That is wrong because that is when burnout happens. This is what I want to avoid at all costs. I am no good to anyone if I am not at the top of my game!
That is why I am taking the time out of my busy day in order to go to see the doctor. It is just wise business and I want to be as wise as possible so that I am successful as possible in this increasingly important business that I chose to be in.
It is essential for me to be at the top of my game in order to show each of my clients that With Age Comes Respect. After today I can get back to business as normal and take care of each of my clients in turn – once I take care of myself today.
