I am taking care of myself today.
How often do you say this to yourself?
Do you actually do it?
Of course you don’t!
The reality is you lead such a busy life, just like everybody else!
You look after your family. You go to work and get stuck in the long queues for work. Then you work incredibly long hours often missing lunch breaks to keep up with deadlines.
You start snacking but the problem is you are eating things which aren’t particularly great for your diet. You’re eating high caloried snacks, drinking too much caffeine and sugar drinks.
You return home after fighting to get through the lengthy commuting queues. If you are lucky, you have a few minutes to be with your children before they go to bed. When they do go to bed, you might sit on the couch in front of the television and vegetate or you might be in a situation where you’ve had to bring work home just to keep on top of everything.
Then the whole crazy wheel of life starts again tomorrow. You just jump right back on, doing the same things you did the day before. But this cannot go on! You have to maintain your sanity!
You need to take care of yourself. Not just today but every day. Look after your health! Look after you! You forget that you are so important! If you keep up with this crazy routine, it’s going to take it’s toll! You need to be at your best. Just for you.
So I simply ask you to do one thing, even for one day. Take care of yourself.
Repeat to yourself, “I am taking care of myself today!” And actually do it! Go for a walk! Meditate! Pamper yourself! Breathe! These are all simple things but at least you are creating time for yourself to recover from the manic days of last week and mentally preparing yourself for whatever comes your way next week.
Take care of yourself!
