As many of you know, I am currently taking a sabbatical year away from my practice in Vancouver, BC. Why? For so many reasons, but first and foremost is to practice what I teach patients everyday – self care.
We can get so busy in the day to day grind of city living, and for the past three years, I’ve encouraged each of my patients to create more time for themselves. To have them start taking care of themselves before taking care of others. Well time has come for me to do the same. I don’t typically recommend my patients take a year off from their jobs, I usually start with having them take 5-10 minutes (or more) of their day to do something they love.
