On self-care

Self-care:

Getting enough sleep
Eating healthily, and often enough to sustain yourself
Exercise
Play
Quiet time – to read, ponder, think, walk
Being with the people you love, and who love you
Touch

Too many of us have decided (how did we decide this?) that self-care is optional, marginal or even a sign of weakness.

It’s a huge misunderstanding of what it is to be human.

And an ever bigger misunderstanding of where our capacity to do good work comes from in the first place.
