Wow, what a week!! From my 4 year old son starting preschool for the year, moving out of our second home and moving back in with my parents (for a short time), teaching my first HIIT (high intensity interval training) class and working my regular job, I can’t help but scream TGIF!! I am mentally, emotionally and physically drained but sit here and think about how blessed and grateful I am for everyone in my life.
I have to remind myself it is “okay” to take time for me to rejuvenate and keep myself sane. We all have been there with busy schedules or committing to too many things and don’t allow our selves time to take care “ME”. We should never feel guilty or selfish but look at it as a way to relax, refocus and recharge to get back out there.
For myself, I need to workout a few times a week to allow my stress to get released. When I don’t, I feel like pot that is going to boil over. It is a time for me to focus on something other than my kids, my husband, my job, etc. Even if it is 30-60 minutes out of the 24 hours in a day, it is what I need to chill out.
Finding something to give yourself that time, whatever it may be, will allow you to be happier, healthier and feel your best. I have to remind myself from time to time, I can’t help others if I don’t help myself!
