Did I get your attention? This is really important!
One of the biggest ways you can steal from yourself is by not taking time out for self-care. Ignoring what your mind, body and spirit need, you can rob yourself of everything from essential nutrients to quiet time, and just like anything else that needs maintenance in life to perform, you are no different.
It’s easy in your busy world and especially in your desire or dedication to do what you feel you must, that you forget that you must be dedicated to taking care of you.
I have to tell you, I’ve been guilty of this myself, pushing myself to get done everything I want to get done. That’s when my body revolts by giving me indicators that I’ve gone too far.
Each part of you, the physical, mental and emotional, needs to recharge frequently and consistently in order to keep going.
Take some time today to listen to what you need. It may be exercise or a massage for your body. Maybe you need to read a good book or watch a thought provoking documentary. Perhaps meditation or social time with friends should be on the agenda.
Whatever it is, don’t push yourself too hard and think that at some point, your Highest You won’t push back. Spend some time on you today.
