5 Ways to Practice Regular Self-Care, Even if You Think You Don’t Have Time
Putting off your self-care practice is NOT going to help you build a thriving business, but THIS will…
Self-Care Strategies for
Those Who Want to Move From
Overworked & Stressed to Happy & Successful!
Stop wishing you had a self-care routine that works for you and make the
mental, physical, and spiritual shifts you need to achieve results from today! It’s easier than you think…
Running a business can be tough, right? That’s a given. You and your own well-being can sloooowly fall further and further down that list of priorities.
It’s true: When you’re distracted and overworked in your business, building a regular self-care routine into your life can feel like an unattainable, airy-fairy, never-gonna-happen kinda dream.
Don’t get me wrong. I know you’ve set out to “take care of yourself better” many times–by eating healthier, snapping up the snazzy gym membership, and taking the every-so-often afternoon off to unplug.
Yet every single time you seem to fall back into your same old (bad) habits.
Eventually, you stop going to the gym (who has time?), start scarfing down pre-made lunches (and maybe even dinners)at your desk and soon enough, you’re bloated, out of shape and just plain tired.
The bad news? Spending way too many hours on your business – and not enough on your personal life and self-care – is the fast-track to burnout.
If you’re saying stuff like…
“I’ll just have waffles and syrup for breakfast. No time for anything healthy.”
“OMG, I’m so tired. Is it lunchtime yet?”
“I deserve a treat. I’ll start my smoothies again tomorrow.”
You know you’re in the danger zone.
But listen: You’re NOT alone.
It’s easy for health to take a seemingly permanent back seat as you work extra hard (and extra hours) to grow your business.
It’s Hard Enough to Grow a Thriving Business–but Even Harder When You Don’t Have the Energy to Get Out of Bed!
The good news? There IS a way to get back on track and achieve the stress-free, joy-filled, expansive-feeling business and lifestyle you’ve been dreaming about.
You just need to take active steps to change your self-care habits.
But before we go there, let’s get one thing straight:
It’s Not the Amount of Work We Do that Causes Burnout!
For many, it’s not the workload that makes us fall off the health wagon. Instead, it’s the feelings we have around our work – like the overwhelming feeling that you’re never off duty; the harrowing guilt that comes up when you try to step away from your business; and the never-ending pressure to achieve and succeed – which becomes overwhelming and stressful.
Which means we can’t simply reduce our workload or start saying no to more clients (although those are nice first steps).
Instead, we actually have to take the focus off work altogether and seriously start making ourselves – our physical, emotional and spiritual selves – a serious priority.
Listen: If you want to truly care for your mind, body, and spirit and feel the real benefits of a healthy, well-rested body and a mind sparkling with creativity and joy…
…There IS a solution.
