When was the last time your prioritized yourself? When was the last time that you took time just for YOU and didn’t feel guilty about it? If it’s longer than you remember, you’re not alone – nearly ALL women struggle with this.
Whether you work, stay at home, are a Mama or and Empty Nester, its our biological nature to care for others + put their needs above ours.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU’RE LAST?
Do feelings of overwhelm, fatigue, and just getting through the day strike a chord with you? This is what it feels like to be burned out and I’ve been there.
I’ve struggled with this during different times of my life. Of course, there are big projects at work, moves, new babies and times of transition when we expect to feel this way, but what if it doesn’t pass?
In December 2013 I had my son and less than 1 month later had to pack up and move for the hubby’s job. As you can imagine, this was a hectic time – adjusting to becoming a Mom, getting baby’s schedule under control, and trying to unpack and settle into our new space was enough to make your head spin. This coupled with new growth at Whole Food Love left me feeling excited on a professional level, but sometimes exhausted in my personal space.
WHAT TO DO?
We all want to know what the secret is to alleviate these feelings and I’ll tell you – it’s ask for help. It may feel like there should be more, it should be more expensive, or it should be more complicated, but its THAT SIMPLE.
Everybody’s “help” will look a little bit different. For me, it was finding childcare once my little guy got older. For others, its finding a personal trainer, working with a meal planner, hiring a cleaning lady, or taking a yoga class.
We are creatures of community. We’re not SUPPOSED to be able to do it alone (and why would you want to??)
After sharing my story, I learned that I’m not alone! So many women right here in our Whole Food Love community are caught in the same trap. There are too many women that fall into these ruts and some take years to get out. Even scarier, some women just accept that “this is how its going to be”.
