We must learn to perfect the art of balance and self-care each day.
I believe that self-care is critical to balancing the daily stress and responsibilities of life. I know exactly what it is like to feel guilty for putting yourself first or simply saying no sometimes. When I began to continually practice self-care, I no longer apologized for caring for myself, my health, and my peace of mind. We must learn to perfect the art of balance and self-care each day. If you find yourself constantly apologizing for needing “me-time,” stop apologizing! You are not being selfish. Selfish is not always a bad word. You cannot give your family, your friends, your job, or whatever that responsibility is your best version of YOU if you are constantly drained, mentally and physically. I always make time for myself, even if it is only an hour a day or one day a week. Sign up to receive my free guide, 5 Ways to Practice Self-Care.
