Self care focus – Give

FOCUS #4: ‘GIVE / VOLUNTEER’

This can include giving your time to, or sharing knowledge with, someone you feel is deserving. 

Other examples include:

– volunteering your time at weekends/evenings in the local community

– doing things for family/friends

– taking on a voluntary role at a local club

– helping out a neighbour

In my experience overdoing this area of wellbeing can be a key factor of overwhelm … I’ve been there myself, and many of my clients are in a similar position.

If this sounds like you – a strength that you may be overdoing here is caring about others, or perhaps you’re a great mentor and enjoy sharing your wisdom with others. Whatever the reason, make sure your ‘give/volunteer’ strength is kept in check and you’re not giving too many hours to this area. 

How (and what) do you give or volunteer? 

How do you ensure you don’t overdo this area?
