As I think about it being Heart Health Month and celebrating love, I begin to think about how we all can show ourselves self-love. Practicing self-love can look different for everyone. It may come in the form of taking some time off to treat a chronic condition, treating yourself to a relaxing massage, or making time for some social connections.
Whatever you need to do to honor yourself, this is the time to do it. I attended the Leading Age Minnesota Institute in St. Paul for a few days this week. I was reminded that connecting with other healthcare professionals and learning from industry leaders is fulfilling to me. I recognized that I love what I do and love spending time helping people become the best version of themselves. What do you need to practice in your life that enables you to love who you are and what you do? We have so many resources in our community for us to practice self-love.
High-quality healthcare, skincare/ beauty services, faith communities, sporting options, and one of my favorites…retail therapy. I encourage you all to take a moment for yourself and practice some self-love. If you want a gift of self-love we are running a great massage special this month, or check out our website at www.jmhsmn.org to find out how JMHS can help you.
