The kids are up. Time to feed them breakfast. It’s time to make their lunches, get them dressed and get them off to school. What do you mean you have a school project due today? 24 cupcakes – when am I gonna have time to make those? You need a costume for the school play in three days? Better get those dishes into the dishwasher and throw that load of laundry into the drier. Oops, don’t forget you need to take something out for dinner. Oh crap the dog has a vet appointment, better grab his leash. Ugh, my 2 o’clock meeting has now been bumped up to one.
Days like this sound familiar? Maybe this is how your week always goes?
So in the middle of all this chaos your body is yelling” WHAT ABOUT ME!! “WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR ME?”
See, as adults we prioritize everyone else’s needs above our own. When that happens we lose sight of the fact that we need to make time for us to recharge and replenish in order to continue the rat race. Schedule a meeting with yourself. schedule an hour out of every day for your time whether it’s working out or painting or reading a book or just staring off into space. It is imperative that our bodies DON’T ask what have you done for me lately. When your body hits that spot it’s usually due to mental burn out or illness. So do yourself and your family a favor and take care of you so you can continue to take care of them!
