You know, as a therapist, that you can’t help others without first helping yourself. That might mean personally seeking some therapy to talk things out and encouraging others to do the same.
Take breaks. You might feel a rush to do something to make things better RIGHT NOW. But, so much of this is out of our control. When you are feeling overwhelmed take a walk, listen to music for a few minutes, do the dishes instead of staring at the computer screen, help your kids with an art project. Be mindful of how you are feeling and practice some self-care.
