Lady — I already know you ain’t got time for self-care.
But you know you need to do it. Who’s going to do all the things that you do if you can’t? Who is going to take care of you because you didn’t take care of yourself?
I’ve helped both of my parents when they couldn’t care for themselves and I don’t want to burden anyone with that.
Besides, you deserve to feel good and treat yourself well.
My version is called Heart-Centered Self-Care and it’s especially for busy women. Most of us have a lot going on — working, taking care of the house, and caring for others. Heart-Centered Self-Care is taking pauses during the day — whether it’s five minutes or thirty — and listening to your body and heart and what they need.
Small breaks throughout your day designed to give you what you need at that moment.
A few deep breaths to relax, some water to hydrate, maybe a quiet place for a bit to decompress.
When you have extra time — and we’re going to talk about how to find it — you can take a little more to do what your body and heart want. This is meaningful work, but peaceful work. Unless, of course, your heart would like something a little more stimulating.
Maybe going for a run is your idea of self-care.
Whatever it is, you’ll know, and take time for it.
I’ve been doing this a long time. Now I want you to do it too. Follow me for more.
