Feeling selfish for trying to put yourself first? Stop. You see, when you handle everyone’s emergencies or
needs before your own, you wear down your personal ‘battery’. When your reserves are down, you don’t think as clearly, live as compassionately, function as efficiently, or feel good about any of it. You are at higher risk for physical and emotional stress related ailments. Ultimately that self neglect means you’ll have less energy and creativity to give to your business, family, and those who depend on you.
So, when you head out to enjoy this upcoming long weekend consider this: take care of yourself, relax and have a good time; you’ll end up a more effective mom, boss, employee, spouse, business owner, ______________!
How have you come to terms with putting your self care first?
