1. Our Must-Do List
2. Activities that Feel More Important than self-care
My challenge earlier this week was to first look at your Must-Do List, using the suggestions from earlier this week, to cut some time out of those activities (which you immediately earmark and assign to self-care). How did it go? I used my shaved off time to paint my nails this week and every time I look at them it makes me very happy I took the time out!
Today, let's look at those activities that feel more important than self-care. This one is a little trickier as for many of us who have this mentality (me included!) we needed to shift our mindset, not just implement some timesavers, which takes more work and commitment.
What this ultimately comes down to is...
Where do you fall on your priority list?
If we think about our cars for a moment; without fuel they cannot go anywhere. We need to fill them up and get them checked-up so they continue to serve our needs. From my perspective, we are the same. We need to add gas to our tanks in order to be able to show up present in our lives, give back, help others, parent etc.
If you wanted to take a road trip this weekend, what is more important than filling the car up with gas?
How can you squash the thought that so many other things are more important than taking the time out for self-care?
