Suit Up - Launch Your Self-Care Support System

Insights from Jeremy and Catherine Hansen

Managing stress and maintaining well-being is a universal challenge, especially for professionals in demanding careers. Astronaut Col. Jeremy Hansen and physician Dr. Catherine Hansen share valuable insights on the importance of self-care and supportive team dynamics.

Jeremy emphasizes the need for a strong support system, stating, "You will need help in life. Find your support network wherever you can, and you'll be amazed at the things you can accomplish as a team."

This is particularly crucial for those with high-stakes responsibilities. By building reliable support networks through friends, family, or colleagues, individuals can better manage life's challenges.

Catherine underscores the necessity of self-care to prevent burnout. "We all need to invest time in taking care of ourselves to overcome the challenges and stresses of life," she advises.

Self-care isn't a luxury but a vital component for sustaining health and productivity. The Hansen's practice mutual support through simple daily rituals.

Jeremy shares, "Something important to Catherine is sharing some time over a cup of coffee in the morning. I don’t even really like coffee, but I do like Catherine, so I make us coffee to spend time together." This small act strengthens their bond and provides a moment of calm before the day begins.

Catherine's culinary skills also enhance their relationship, allowing them to share meals and connect. Despite busy schedules, they prioritize quality time together. "Date night never happens quite often enough, but it's a way we carve out time to be with each other," Catherine notes.

Physical activity and mindfulness are also crucial to their self-care routine. They often work out together, holding each other accountable for staying active. Jeremy contributes to their family's mindfulness by sharing quotes or articles and fostering discussions about being present.

Jeremy and Catherine's experiences highlight the importance of self-care and support systems. By investing in these areas and supporting one another, individuals can better navigate life's challenges and achieve greater success and fulfillment.
