First, Put the Oxygen Mask on Yourself!

Updated: May 9, 2019

Have you ever travelled by plane? If you have, you’ll have heard the safety talk the air-

stewardesses give before the plane takes off. One piece of advice they always include is

that in an emergency, if the cabin should depressurise, always put an oxygen mask on

yourself before you start helping your family members to put on theirs.

Why? Every parent’s first instinct will be to see to the kids, and make sure they’re OK. Which

is wonderful, and loving and entirely natural. But not terribly sensible. If you pass out due to

lack of oxygen before you’ve seen to the kids, nobody gets oxygen.

It’s the same thing in the rest of life. It may be more blessed to give than to receive, but

that’s not the same thing as it being blessed not to receive. You can’t pour water from an

empty jug. You can’t keep on breathing out without breathing in.

If you’re an open-hearted and loving person (and you probably wouldn’t be reading this if

you weren’t) you want to give. It feels good to give. And that is wonderful. But put the

oxygen mask on yourself first. Promise yourself some time every single day to recharge your

batteries. No time? 15 minutes is 1% of your day. Your family, friends and business can get

by with 99% of you!

And schedule a Deep Recharge once a month. Meditate. Have a Reiki treatment, crystal, therapy, or book yourself a massage.

Be kind and loving to yourself.

Then give to others.

Just 5 minutes out can make all the difference
