To Self-care is a MUST. It is not selfish or self-absorbed. It's a mattter of slowing down, taking a break to reboot. It's time to shift into a new paradigm of thinking. It's not about indulgence but rather safeguarding and sustenance. Self-care is vitally important! It is LOVE. No one needs to give you permission to make time for yourself. Put yourself on the calendar! Set a specific date and time to get clarity, be refreshed and refueled. It has nothing to do with having the time but rather making it a definite priority. Too many times as women we put ourselves last with all the roles we play. We must remember to put our own oxygen mask on first.
As a busy, homeschooling mom of 5 kiddos, I learned this lesson the hard way. As a result of burnout I discovered that not making time for myself was causing more harm than good and was a detriment to my overall productivity. My effectiveness in: business, schooling, service in ministry, relationships all were negatively impacted. I wasn't able to show up powerfully for those I love and care about most because I neglected to care for myself.
If left unattended to, feelings of resentment, frustration and overwhelm can arise and consume you like a tidal wave. We should always honor ourselves through self-care and overall wellness.
There are tremendous benefits to self-care. You and your family or your business will reap the wonderful benefits of your self-care. Start with small steps until it becomes second nature.
