Being sensitive to our own need for a balanced life can give us the energy and motivation to better help others. Our generosity and thoughtfulness toward others can often cause us to give more of ourselves than we realize and result in feelings of fatigue. If we instead make an effort to extend kindness to ourselves, we will be able to keep our energy strong and our mind-set positive. As we devote time to self-care and strengthening our spiritual connection, we will find ourselves feeling energized, compassionate, and balanced. We then have the physical stamina and emotional drive to devote more attention to the needs of others. You can better share your thoughtfulness with others by first taking time to honor yourself today.
