Now I know…
It took a pretty calamitous day to teach me that self-care is actually important! #calamity
Dishing up fifty 3-course-meals before breakfast and then cleaning the whole kitchen? No problem, I thought. ⏫
I am naturally an energetic person so it’s easy for me to say “Yes!” to pretty much any activity. It doesn’t matter if I have work, extra activities or haven’t slept for more than 5 hours. Half the time I don’t even notice I’ve missed breakfast or lunch. I am always busy yolo-ing and can pull it off without a hitch.
Well, I think life is trying to tell me something. I need to at least cover the basics…food, water and rest.
So I have decided to get into the habit if taking care of myself more.
I looked for inspiration ⏫ on Pinterest and will try and create a new habit tracker for self-care in my Happy Planner. They say it takes 30 days to create a new habit. Well my habit will be breakfast, bringing water and a spa-visit at least once a month. Yolo-ing has just become a bit more self-serving and not just about fulfilling others needs.
Always remember you can’t take care of others if you’re totally exhausted yourself! ⏫
Happy Adventuring! 😴
