Repeat after me, "self-care is not selfish. I take care of myself so I can show up as the best version of myself for everyone else."
Since becoming a mom, I have struggled a lot with balancing the desire to take care of myself with the guilt of that feeling that I am somehow taking away from my kids and my family.
But I have learned that in order to be at my very best for my kids, and my work, and my life, and my husband, I really do need to take care of myself first.
And - when I think about it - it really doesn’t take me that much time. Just 4-hours per week to be able to show up as the very best version of myself.
That is 2.3% of the hours I have in a week - and when I miss out on this time I feel like I am on my heels, I feel disorganized, and I feel sluggish and tired.
It’s just 4-hours per week - 3 training sessions and 1 hour per week of meal planning/prepping.
Let me know if you've been struggling with the balance of it all too.
