Pre Show Prep – Getting in the Mood to Care
My good friend and coworker Marti Hannon from World Changer Consulting joins me, the Reluctant Ringmaster, on the Caregiving Circus Talk Show to chat about getting or being in the mood to care. We figured since it was the month of love, February, we would show some of you’all how to love yourself.

It Is Not Selfish to do a Pre Show Prep
I mean really folks. It is not selfish – it is essential. (Ah, play on words – essential, essential oils). We would not say something rude to a actor preparing to get ready for a show.

Let us figure out our way to make ourselves present in the moment and move forward with vigor.

Okay, that really had nothing to do with the podcast at all, but I think Kermit the Frog is hilarious and I am in a good mood and wanted to share. That is a big part of self care friends. Your mood, good, bad, or ugly, will rub off on those around you and everything you do. In conclusion, try to be aware of your senses and your surroundings so you are able to be focused and care for yourself and others.
