Take care of yourself:
You can step away from the kitchen, without coming back to a burnt mess. Taking care of yourself is like having an equally capable chef step in and manage everything. When you return to your kitchen, you can continue your work without a hitch. No mess to clean up. Nothing ruined in your absence. Self-care includes practicing healthy thinking and problem-solving, establishing and automating healthy lifestyle habits, learning how to prioritize, and nurturing what matters. If you don’t know how to take care of yourself well yet, you can learn. It’s a set of skills that anyone can eventually master.
