Are you getting your needs met when it comes to your health and fitness?
Deep down do you think you are REALLY worth it?
Many of us, especially women, inherently look after the needs of others before ourselves and often feel spent by the end of most days with nothing left for ourselves. This can go on for years and suddenly one day you wake up and you have lost yourself. This can build feelings of just plain "badness". You may feel tired because exercise and eating right actually gives you energy and feelings of empowerment. You may feel resentment because you are giving, giving, giving and never looking after you. Basic self care shows that you know you are worth it and everyone around you will benefit from you looking after yourself.
Here are some tell tale signs that you ARE or ARE NOT taking care of number one!
ARE: You consistently schedule in exercise for yourself and everyone in your house knows that this is your time SO BACK OFF! You feel great and energized and ready to conquer the world.
ARE NOT: You fall into bed every night totally drained and wake up feeling exactly the same way, each day blends into the next and you see no light at the end of the tunnel.
ARE: You make time for special treats such as pedicures at your favorite spa, time out with your girlfriends, and projects that you are passionate about and that hold great importance to you (business or pleasure).
ARE NOT: You feel like you are enduring each day and never enjoying each day, you tend to lean towards behaviours that make you feel worse such as eating unhealthy foods and negative thinking, you feel trapped in a cycle and don't know how to get off the merry-go-round (only it's not so merry).
ARE: You surround yourself with people that you relate to and who you feel supported by (not people who co-sign you BS), you associate with like minded, positive people and you know that you can take on anything because YOU ARE WORTH IT.
If you are in the ARE NOT category, you can contact me and I can discuss some ideas to get you on track. Hopefully you ARE! You will feel sometimes shifts between ARE and ARE NOT's this is life simply doing it's balancing act!
