Do I really need to incorporate self-care into my daily routine? The answer is yes. I know you’re busy, you’ve got so much on your plate. You’re making breakfasts, lunches and dinners. You’re cleaning the house yet again (if you’re like me you feel like seriously didn’t I just clean this place yesterday?). You’re busy rushing the kids from activity to activity. You’re juggling home life, with work, volunteering; extended family responsibilities and so much more. Then you hear people say, you’ve got to find time for yourself and you wonder…when?
I totally feel you! I agree that you’re schedule is definitely full but I also want to invite you to be honest with yourself. If you keep going at this pace, without taking time to re-charge, is it possible you might experience some burnout? Could you already be feeling a bit of it now? I’m not asking you to overhaul your entire schedule. I’m simply asking you to take a look at it and see if there’s some way you can fit yourself into it. Whether it’s a 5 minute meditation in the morning or 5 minutes of gratitude journalling before bed. Please find some time to do something that helps you feel renewed. Trust me hon, you’ll be so glad you did.
