So it seems like overnight my life became crazy busy. I find myself sometimes at work making to-do list, working on blog stuff, figuring out business stuff and trying to plan dinner meals and workouts. And I am just pooped!
Lately, my mind has been filled with thousands of ideas. Lots of sleep has been lost, but I’m grateful because I prayed for ideas and I prayed to be busy and I surely prayed for God to stretch me and use me. But what do ya do when your self care is compromised?
Keep working, but take some time to treat yourself! In the midst of my busy life, I got a promotion at work (yay!). Now that I earn a little more, I can treat myself to something nice, even if it’s just an ice cream cone. If money isn’t something readily available to you, have a night in with some wine and Netflix, paint your fingernails, anything that is truly relaxing to you.
It is just so hard for me to say no, but I’m slowly learning that saying no and putting things in order by priority are key to my success. You don’t want to burn out…it’s very rare to come back from a burn out. So, don’t be afraid to say no or not at this moment. I’ve tried to say no to things that are not going to benefit me in the long run and that has worked for me, so I’m sure it’ll work for you! You’ve got to put yourself first because no one else will.
