Stop being busy. Stop hustling constantly. Stop skipping self-care.
Start using your time intentionally. Hustle when you need to. Take care of yourself.
As mom it is so easy to skip self-care because we spend so much time serving others. As a real estate agent I serve clients all day long then I come home to serve my family. Both of these things I love dearly. In the same breath I can say, I know myself enough that if I do not take time for my own self care I do not have the energy I want to pour into the other people that I want to serve and love.
Sometimes self-care is the little things. Taking a hot bath with a face mask and no interruption, ordering supper on Friday night from a local restaurant, taking a walk alone, doing my morning workout with Nourish Move Love, reading before anyone wakes up, or taking time in my journal. As I type these words they seem like the most simple things I should be able to do every day, but for me that is not the reality I don’t have the hours in the day to do all of these things every single day.
Other days self care for me as something more. It’s taking the time for an hour massage, getting my nails done, going on a coffee date with a friend (without our kids so we can have an adult conversation).
Whether it is little things are big things taking time for my own self-care fills my cup and makes me a better person. And I’m confident it will do the same for you.
