I know, I know. I’ve heard it. I’ve said it. I’ve lived it.
There is no time for great self-care.
I urge you to find a way to change that—immediately if not sooner. You have value, you have worth.
Do you want to bring your best self to the table? Do you want to take good care of the people you love?
Are you a great example to others so they become great self-care givers as well?
But for most of us this has never been a priority. It will take a change of heart and some re-structuring.
In the meantime, I want to share a few ideas, so you can start taking good care of yourself today-
with baby steps. Lean into it. Don’t dive in or it won’t stick.
I promise, you can make a difference, and really start loving your life, and yourself!
