We all have busy lives with limited time and energy to devote to everything that we need to get done. When something needs to give, it’s usually our self-care. Is attending to you and your needs at the bottom of your To Do List? Let me help you start making yourself and your well being your number one priority.
Life can get messy and chaotic. Bills need to get paid, dishes need to be done, emails need to be answered…and that’s never going to change. However, if your priorities don’t change to include some time that’s devoted to your physical and emotional health, these minor day-to-day tasks have the potential to become huge, overwhelming obstacles.
A big part of attending to your self-care is learning how to say no. You don’t want to disappoint the people in your life, but saying yes to something when your plate is already full benefits no one. You can’t be fully present for others if you’re barely able to keep your head above water. Therapy in and of itself is a form of self-care, and can help you shift your perspective of it being selfish to absolutely essential.
