Back to School, Back to Self Care

As the summer winds down, I know I'm not the only one thinking about what can be different this fall.

Sign up for this FREE event on September 12th where you’ll experience much-deserved relaxation and you’ll learn how to embrace self care and finally focus on YOUR needs! You'll longer feel like you're struggling to keep your head above water and instead you'll be able to enjoy peace and calm, even in the chaos.

SELF CARE is something that most of us forget about, shove in our back pockets, and neglect. We often put everyone and everything else before ourselves - work, children, spouses, errands, everything. It’s back to school time and I am SURE you are super focused on getting your kids ready for a new school year.

Even our society teaches us that taking care of ourselves first is selfish and a bad thing. I think that’s a bunch of BS!

On an airplane, we’re instructed to put on our own oxygen masks first, before helping a child.  If you think that’s a crazy idea, realize that you’re not much help to anyone if you’ve passed out due to lack of oxygen because you tried to help everyone else first.

So, now is the time to think about what you can do FOR YOU! Apply this concept to every day life.

Taking care of yourself = keeping your cup full.  If you don’t do things to keep your cup full, you have nothing left to give or share with others.

I've realized that as much as I am a mother, a caregiver, a person who loves to give, give, give, it’s also my responsibility to take the time to do what feeds my soul – first.

When I do this, the world won’t fall apart.  People won’t hate me.  People won’t think I’m an incompetent loser.  People won’t think I’m selfish.

So my goal for YOU this new school year is for you to fill YOUR cup up first!!  Focus on things that feed YOUR soul, YOUR heart, YOUR life.

See you on September 12th!
