It’s easy to get pulled into the everyday routines of caring for your kids or others, focusing on work and deadlines – the last thing you think to do is care for yourself. When you take care of yourself, you take care of your family – something I call filling your family’s cup. By doing something that feeds you, you are feeding your family. You will have more energy, enthusiasm, and emotional presence. Doing something for yourself can be as simple as a quiet cup of tea, hike or walk on the beach, ten minutes to read the news, talk with a friend, date night, basketball game, or yoga class.
This week I challenge you to do one thing for yourself each day. Schedule it as an appointment or a meeting and do not cancel. You deserve it. You are worthy of your own love.
Share with us what you will do for you this week!
