It’s no secret, and the data proves it: We women are doing A LOT for others. In a typical 24-hour day, we are cramping in 36 hours of work and still there seems no time for ourselves. Too many of us are spending every moment of time and every bit of our energy on those around us and nothing–nothing–on ourselves.
If you are too busy to read this further, go to my complimentary Balance Planning and get the self care checklist I designed just for you here.
I joke about this, because if you think that 30 minutes is going to magically open up at the end of the day for you to finally do something for yourself – you will be waiting for a long time. This fantasy is something I myself keep chasing, but really what will make self care happen is when we pay attention to some self care basics.
Because if you don’t, you are likely to be headed straight toward burnout. That is why I recommend a self care checklist.
In this video I share some of the things that I have learned, both from my own personal experience and as a coach to other women. I not only have identified some of the ways you can start to change to include self care in your life (Spoiler Alert: start making your calendar your best friend!) but also have developed a tool that you can access online—for free!
In 10 minutes you will be ready to build a self care checklist of your own. Make that small effort now and get the big payoff of feeling relaxed and taken care of. When you steer yourself away from the inevitable burnout of no selfcare and toward a healthier life the results are more balance and a healthy mindset.
If you find this helpful, ‘Like’ and share this with your friends. Trust me… we will all be better off if we include self care into our busy schedules.
