Happy 2019 ladies!
There are so many things that we, as women, focus on. And most of the time I would say that we hardly ever focus on ourselves. As women we worry about everyone else in our lives whether that be a spouse, children, work collegues, and often times our beloved furbabies.
It is also about this time of year when we make goals for the next year. Goals like taking better care of yourself, losing weight, eating better, quitting some bad habit. And we do really well for the first month or so and then we are right back where we started. Why is that? Scientifically, it takes 29 days to create a habit, and supposedly it takes longer to break a bad one. I believe that one of the reasons is that we tend to get busy, we then are not focused on the present and we tend to put others needs first and forget that in order to be effective in helping others we need to be our best self.
Self care comes in all forms. Some of us read in a quiet space, we light candles and do yoga, some of us actually go to the gym for self care (I like to go because I love to sit in the hot tub). What ever you do for self care, make an appointment with yourself to do it. We make appointments for/with everyone else and we keep them, so why not make an appointment with yourself. Block out that small amount of time for self care, and keep that appointment. Why do we hold others to be accountable for us, why do we answer to others and not ourselves? Let's hold ourselves accountable and keep that appointment with ourselves.
Let's be the best us this year.
