Today, we women are coming into our own and the entrepreneur's rate is at an all time high. We can get so busy and caught up in the day to day things that take our attention away from ourselves and cause frequent overwhelm. We are made to feel like giving to others first is the better way to be. At the end of our days we are depleted of everything. When I talk with friends, business associates and clients, the one thing that is prevalent in our conversations is how much we forget to take pride in ourselves, get dressed up, take a little alone time, indulge our senses with beautiful fragrance, cuddle up with a cozy throw and read a delicious book.
It's important to remember to take time out in our days, even if its only 15-20 minutes. Put down the phone and do something luxurious for yourself. For me its a bath. It helps to recharge and refuel your creativity & drive. One way to make it a little bit easier for yourself, is to set yourself up for it. I always like to say "luxury doesn't have to be expensive". Take some time out to create a cozy nook in your bedroom or pile your bath with a cozy robe and slippers. Buy yourself a yummy candle and some soft pillows for your desk.
Remember it's OK and actually a good thing to say "no" I am not able to commit to that or I'm not gonna be able to attend. This is a biggie for me. Also laugh.....as much as you can. It boosts your mood, and has been shown to help keep you healthy. I have begun to start my day watching a bit of YouTube in the morning for 20 min. Conan O'brien is one of my favorites! He, Jim Gaffigan, Will Ferrell & Kevin Hart are at the top of my list.
So remember my peeps you do you! Like they say "put your mask on first before helping others" Mine just happens to be the new StriVectin brightening instant
