"Put your own oxygen mask on first!", as they say in the airline safety talk. This reminds me that, on this Valentine's Day of appreciation of those people and things we love, we should first remember that it is often considered wise to try to love ourselves first, something that for whatever reason doesn't always seem to come as easily as loving others.

It is by loving ourselves, and attending to our own needs, that we ensure we are giving the best version of ourselves to others.

So if you read this, take a moment to think of three (or as many as you wish) things you love and appreciate about yourself. Feel free to write them in the comments, especially if bravery is on the list ;)

My three things would be:
1. I love my tenacity in the face of problems.
2. I love that I get pleasure from helping people.
3. I love that I still find squirrels so squeal inducingly exciting :)

Travel blog of a scientist's adventures!

http://apetalife.blogspot.com/

Ok so I normally do science all day but I'm changing jobs for a while. Out with the high power lasers as I excitedly dive into fusion research.

I am a big advocate of recovering between projects and, while I do yoga and meditation to keep my mind and body working well on a normal week, I think a big change like this is an opportunity to really shake yourself up and tweak anything you want to change.

So I am off to work on myself a bit, push my boundaries and learn more about this stunning planet on which we live: Bali, New Zealand, USA and Costa Rica are on my agenda and I'm now in New Zealand and it's amazing!
