Give Yourself a Break

 

With so much on our plates, it’s easy to forget to prioritize our own well-being. But self-care isn’t a luxury reserved for special occasions — it’s essential to our daily lives.

The good news is, you don’t have to break the bank or sacrifice precious sleep in order to be truly good to yourself. Take a few minutes this weekend to nurture yourself and enjoy the benefits of self-care.

Here are four easy ways: 

Connect with Nature. Step outside and take a 10-minute walk in nature. Enjoy the sounds, smells and fresh air surrounding you. Allow yourself to breathe fully and unwind your mind.

Spend a few minutes acknowledging yourself. Pour a cup of coffee or a glass of something that makes you happy and take five minutes to congratulate yourself for all you’ve accomplished so far this year. Write it all down and look it over. Then, give yourself a few more minutes to get intentional about what you’d like to accomplish next.

Dive in to the Love Yourself More Workshop and start creating a stronger relationship with yourself. Learn how to be kinder and more accepting of who you are and create unshakeable confidence. 

Whip up a delicious meal that will delight your taste buds and nourish your body. Explore new recipes or indulge in a comforting classic.

Self-care isn’t a luxury it’s a necessity, so make it non-negotiable and schedule it in your calendar if needed. Just remember to leave your phone (and any guilt!) behind. 

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Even when we have the best intentions, life happens, and it’s easy to find ourselves feeling like we’ve gone off track or fallen behind. We may even be tempted to throw in the towel and give up on something completely.

Create More Joy in Your Day

Create More Joy in Your Day

There’s nothing better than when someone asks how your day was and you get to respond with “Fantastic!” and actually mean it.

We’ll never be able to control every annoyance or hiccup we encounter in our days, but there are several things we can do to create more joy. 

Here are four easy ways:

Is Fear Holding You Back?

Is Fear Holding You Back?

Do you have any dreams that just haven’t become a reality yet? 

Whether it’s traveling abroad, switching jobs, starting a company, learning to surf or mountain climb – many of us have something we dream of being, doing, having or experiencing.  

Though we don’t mean for it, sometimes those dreams stay just that – dreams, because of one four-letter word that stands between us: FEAR

Sitting in Stillness

Sitting in Stillness

When we’re fully consumed in a project, or in a busy season with our family or personal lives it can be easy to feel like we’re constantly in motion.

Sometimes it isn’t until you stop for a minute that you realize how rushed you really were.

It’s important we allow ourselves moments to sit in stillness. Quiet time allows our minds to process, unpack and get creative.
