In case you’ve never heard it put quite this way (or you need a little reminder), repeat after me:
Taking care of yourself first is one of the most UNSELFISH things you can do. 💥
(You should probably write that down somewhere.)
I believe in you and I know that you teach the importance of self-care to your clients all day long.
I KNOW you truly believe it, and you mean it!
But I also know (because I work with moms and therapists and I have a backstage pass to what they are really thinking) that as much as you believe in the importance of taking care of yourself, it can be hard to actually commit to it and make it happen.
- Someone else needs your time, so you schedule over the time you blocked off to take a walk.
- A client is in crisis, so you work through lunch.
- Your kid was home sick, so you had to cancel lunch with a friend and haven’t gotten around to rescheduling it.
- You feel guilty about the things you will have to let go of in order to take care of yourself (hello there, pile of laundry on the dining room table).
So I just wanted to send a little encouragement your way today. ✨
Taking care of yourself FIRST makes you a better parent/ therapist/ friend/ partner/ etc. It gives you the joy and energy you need to shine your light.
And I know that together, you and I can stop just believing in the importance of self-care and start actually DOING it.
Take good care of yourself this week,
