I DON’T KNOW WHO NEEDS TO HEAR THIS BUT… just because you can do something doesn’t mean you have to or you should.
A while back, I used to put the needs of my business, my friends and my family ahead of my own.
I would skip training sessions and skip meals and I was basically running myself ragged meaning I didn’t have anything left in the tank for myself.
This was around the time that I was really struggling to manage my hashimotos and I was absolutely EXHAUSTED.
Dog tired. I didn’t feel like myself.
And - I really had lost the joy from my life but still, I would push it at work and pour it into everyone else.
Then I finally realized that I wasn’t good for ANYONE including my family and my business.
I learned that if I wasn’t being good to myself, I really couldn’t be good for anyone or anything else.
This one shift helped change my life and the few key non-negotiables for me really aren’t that difficult to manage.
1 - I prioritize my sleep - I make sure that I get at least 7 hours
2 - I prioritize my training sessions - I train at least 3x weekly
3 - I prioritize my nutrition - I meal plan to ensure I’m well nourished
4 - I stay hydrated
And… I feel so much better. I am a better mom, a better wife, a better leader, and a better business owner.
What’s ONE THING you can do (and feel like you “should” do), that you can let go of?
