To Take Care of Others, You Must Take Care of Yourself


While helping each other, we oftentimes forget to preserve our own health. Dr Gold recommends tips for maintaining your own peace of mind.

Remember to eat, sleep, and keep yourself healthy. If it helps, journal, or do something else for your mental wellness. Dr Gold reminds us that you cannot help others if you are not taken care of too.
