It's Time To Get Selfish

Ladies, it's time to be Selfish!
Whether you're a stay at home mother or a woman on the go, it's easy to put yourself on the back burner. As women we sometimes put everything and everyone in our lives before us even when we shouldn't. Let's face it, without us the world would probably stop spinning. That's the thing, if we don't take care of ourselves, how can we possibly take care of everything else?

Self care isn't just the basics. It's not just bathing, eating, and sleeping. It's about truly taking time for yourself. Even if it's just thirty minutes of your day to watch your favorite tv show. Or maybe meditating to clear your mind. We can't continue to neglect ourselves by putting everything else first. Sacrificing your personal care for work or anything else will ultimately catch up to you.

My personal tips for better self care are easier said than done. However, with a little effort, can be accomplished. Try to workout at least three times a week. Join a gym and take up a zumba class or two. Maybe try a morning jog to get your day started. Whatever you choose be consistent. Make sure you eat well balanced nutritious meals. I know this tip is definitely one of the harder ones as fast food is so accessible but eating healthy is a must. Food is literally fuel for our bodies and we have to be conscious of what we fuel ourselves with. Lastly but certainly not least, get some sleep. This one is especially hard for me but it's a process. Try going to bed at the same time every single night and eventually your body will get use to it.

Taking care of ourselves is essential for our lives. It's important that we take care of ourselves so that we'll be around to reap the benefits of our hard work, whether it's at home or work .If you don't take care of yourself, who will? Incorporate small changes to your routine and be consistent with everything that you do. Just take everyday one step at a time and always listen.
