How important is Self-Care while caring for others? Self-care can help you enhance your health and wellbeing, manage your stress, and maintain professionalism as a worker with young people. Learn to identify activities and practices that support your wellbeing as a professional and help you to sustain positive selfcare in the long-term.

Through a partnership, Fairfax County Public Schools and Office for Children are committed to providing access to quality early childhood experiences for all children in Fairfax County. Each month, the Fairfax Early Childhood Partnerships team publishes 5-4-3-2-1 early childhood tips. For December, The Wise Family’s very own Resident in Counseling, Kasey Cain, created the tips sheet on the topic of Self-Care for the adult in a child’s life.

It is important at ALL times to take care of yourself.  However, this reminder is especially timely now.  While there are certainly joys during the holidays, no matter which you may celebrate, it is also a stressful time.  If your children are off from school there are schedules that need to be worked out.  Visiting family, holiday gift giving, wishing some loved ones could be with us… all of these and more can also add a layer of stress.  Please enjoy these self-care tips and feel free to peruse the Fairfax Early Childhood Partnerships page for past tip sheets.

Take special care this holiday season. Until next week, Be Wise!
