Today, I realized that the “health and safety are non-negotiable,” mantra I preach to parents regarding their children should also apply to adults, myself included.
So, I want to know, do you consider regular check-ups, keeping up with medications, eating (reasonably) well, getting regular exercise, allowing for downtime and other mental health boosters as necessities or luxuries?
I am guessing the latter part of the list might be the biggest challenge. Could reframing these things as health and safety help motivate you? I am going to give that reference a try in my own head. Let me know what you think and what works for you.
