Stop for a second now and consider it. When was the last time you did something for yourself, or made the things that matter to you your top priority?
It’s easy to get swept along in life, dealing with an endless list of everyday tasks. And if you’re used to taking care of other people, you may sometimes just forget to look after yourself.
Putting yourself first isn’t about being selfish or ignoring other people’s needs. It’s about giving yourself the space to take care of your emotional and physical health and generally being kind to yourself so you can flourish.
Here are some ideas to help you put yourself first:
Set aside time each day to do something you enjoy, even if it’s just ten minutes of reading or listening to the radio.
Try out the Imagining Your “Trade-Offs” Suitcase activity. This might help you re-prioritize your days.
Remember: you don’t have to manage your breathing difficulty on your own. There are lots of different options for getting support—talk to your doctor about them.
COPD: SYMBICORT 160/4.5 mcg is used long-term to improve symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, for better breathing and fewer flare-ups.
Asthma: SYMBICORT is for the treatment of asthma in patients 6 years and older whose asthma is not well-controlled with an asthma-control medicine such as an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) or whose asthma warrants treatment with both an ICS and a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA).
SYMBICORT is not used to relieve sudden breathing problems and will not replace a rescue inhaler.Please see full Prescribing Information and Patient Information, and discuss with your doctor.
