P-O-Y-O-O-M-F or POYOOMF is an acronym, which I have been using for several years now and it means Put On Your Own Oxygen Mask First, which you may recall was an instruction issued as part of the pre-flight safety demonstration on every flight you were ever on.

The idea is that you need to look after you first (counterintuitive for many, especially parents of young children) so that you can be of best service to those less capable, whether younger, older or perhaps somewhat infirm should there be an emergency on board.

I think however that POYOOMF has merits in all aspects of our lives. Self-care is not selfish.

If your phone was at 3% charge, you’d do something about it – in case it dies! Just sayin’ like!

And so, I invite you to gift yourself some POYOOMF time, stick on the kettle, grab a coffee, and think with me for a few (7) minutes in your preferred way…
