Life should be lived with intensity… not watched from the sidelines. It shouldn’t be a mindless journey towards old age. Instead, we should live with intention and allow ourselves to be present in the moment, enjoying every day; not just going through the motions stressed out and overwhelmed.
When’s the last time you woke up refreshed, rejuvenated and excited about your day? How often do you find yourself up late, unable to sleep, because you can’t seem to stop thinking? Or can you remember going to bed without the stresses of the next day causing your mental stress or anxiety?
Women are busy! We juggle everything: work, school, kids, relationships, side-hustles and businesses, and taking care of our homes. And while each of these is meaningful and contributes to our sense of purpose, the one thing that often gets lost in the shuffle – is you! It’s time for a personal time-out.
We all know a woman that oozes a strong sense of self. The one that seems to know exactly who they are. From their family history to the future they’ve mapped out for themselves, they seem sure, confident, and right on track.
I’m a self-care advocate. I try to practice self-care (in one way or another) every day. In a time when hustlin’ until the wheels fall off is championed and being a workaholic is often deemed the way to success, I believe in taking care of self, first. But let’s be honest, most of the time self-care finds itself penciled in… at the bottom of your to-do list. Sound familiar?
