One More Day
For some reason we have been programmed to think that being busy, exhausted, and sleep deprived equals being successful, so we put self-care on the back burner ( I am so guilty of this). Reality is, that until we make ourselves a priority, we simply can’t be our very best!
The go-to excuse is “but I don't have time”...well, just maybe this year, we do! We get 24 extra hours - Tomorrow, in fact. February 29.
On this Leap Day (thankfully it’s a Saturday!) I challenge myself and you to take even just a slice of the day to do something for you and for you alone. I have booked a facial for myself.
Try something that stirs an emotion - something that thrills you, or inspires you, relaxes you, piques you’re curiosity, or moves you (literally or metaphorically).
Whether you take time to read a few chapters of a new book, Netflix binge, take a yoga class, that massage you’ve been postponing, a bike ride, a picnic, a snowboard sesh, a walk, or maybe a cozy nap, you deserve it. Don’t feel guilty. You can’t pour from an empty cup. Please share some of the things you will be doing for yourself.
As the co-founder of LYNQ - where Love Yourself No Question is our mantra, it serves as a reminder to me that it’s ok to make time to take care of ourselves, inside and out.
And whatever we do, we shouldn’t wait another four years to make ourselves a priority. Happy Leap Day!
