Are You Getting Enough Oxygen for Yourself?

A great article at the Parentalk Working Parents site. The 'Oxygen Mask' Principle relates that familiar airplane safety reminder of putting on your own oxygen mask before trying to fasten your child's mask to taking care of yourself as a parent. So often, we take care of everyone BUT ourselves and in the end, we not only cheat ourselves, but those around us. Sometimes, its essential that we're selfish. Then, we can be fully present when our children, spouses, and other loved ones need us.

What are you going to do this week to get your oxygen?
