This is why people forget who they are. They tend to lose themselves in a relationship and/or family. I see it all the time and I actually still have a problem with this from time to time. A healthy person and a healthy soul begin with you. When you’re happy and content it will filter through you and into your relationship/family.
Have a conversation with your partner/spouse and let them know that you need this time and that it’s an essential part of your relationship and well-being.
Taking care of yourself can be simple, but needs to be deliberate. Carve out time for you, for your sanity.
Take care of me list:
ü Take a nice warm bath
ü Go for a quiet drive
ü Get your hair done
ü Write a letter
ü Go to a movie
ü Call a friend
~start out with whatever you can carve out and build on it; even if you only can find five minutes.
It’s vital that we have balance in our lives and give ourselves permission to take care of ourselves.
Benefits of taking care of you…
Results of not taking care of you…
Be your own best friend and take charge of your own well-being by taking care of yourself.
