I can't believe it's almost noon and I'm just barely saying good morning. I took some time for me this weekend and boy does it feel great. Far too often we forget to recharge our batteries and than we are left stranded in the middle of the road, wondering why we didn't follow through with a project or a fitness plan or meal prep. This is the reason why. You didn't take a break, you didn't take care of you. Start carving time out for yourself on a weekly basis, even if it's just 15 minutes, then every 90 days take a day if you can or at least several hours just for you a weekend would be even better . It will make a world of difference and you deserve it. Have a great Memorial Day everyone!
Mindfulness Monday - be mindful of your stress levels.
Are you actually stressed? I've seen & experience many times where people have talked themselves into being stressed, especially in the work place.
Stress is often describe as feeling overloaded, wound up tight, tense, worried, foggy brain & finding it hard to concentrate to name a few.
Below are some important reason not to ignore self care when it comes to stress. Stress can bring on a range of symptoms in the body such as;
* High blood pressure
* Rapid breathing * Can't sleep
* Stomach aches
* Immune System response * Heart attack
I have been taking some much needed play time with my family and our sweet friends that are visiting us. I've needed more ocean, waterfalls, feet in dirt and laughs lately!! I've been in a season of push and taking a couple days off has been so good... but then I began 'should-ing' all over myself about how I should be posting more, I should be staying visible and active online, I should post part 2 of my 5 part training videos, I should respond to all the emails... the list goes on. But then I caught myself, nothing good comes from 'should-ing' all over myself. It just throws me in a guilt spiral. Nobody is dying, nobody is hurt... these things can wait. I'm filling my cup, tending to my joy and self because it's necessary for all the things to flow and grow. So, I will give you guys part 2 of the video training on Tuesday!!!! Until then... I'll be loving on my sweet (and and a bit sick) littles, playing in the ocean, laughing and playing with people that I love and maybe drinking a little tequila too! Are you 'should-ing' yourself about something? What is it? Ok, now STOP IT!
