FOCUS ON YOU! SELF CARE!
What does this mean?
One aspect in my life I am improving is my health, fitness and nutrition. (My financial self care side is a work in progress to!) It’s not easy!
I started a home workout routine with the help of a friend @Tashagagne
Day 1: I was excited to start.
Day 2: still roaring to go.
Day 3: What is happening to me. I’m sore, I’m sooo sore.
Day 4: I want to curl up and suck my thumb and put blankets over my head. But I also don’t want to have to say to to myself and my friend - uhh I didn’t do it.... so here I am. Phone timer on checking every minute. Screaming occasionally “I can do this”.
The power to be great is in us. It’s in YOU! I believe in you so tell yourself today that you believe in yourself!
There are barriers that stop us. Fear, time, money etc.
So how do we move past these barriers to reach the YOU, you want to be?
Use your supports, people you you call friends and family, take moments to be mindful of your surroundings and happenings. Find out what is important to you and your self care.
Make a plan.
Make it simple (10 minute walk, 10 minute tea/coffee, 2 minutes of deep breathing— it all counts)
Take your first step and put your plan into action. Do what you set out to do.
And “IF” along the path you miss a step THATS OK! It’s not a failure because GUESS WHAT? The power is in you to start again. You never fail if you continue to get back up!
What got me to start my fitness self care? Believe it or not it was my new 2020 Sticky note Mantra:
I HAVE TIME!!!
Often I stress myself out saying “ I don’t have time....!” So now my mantra is assisting my mindset. I HAVE TIME!!
At YOUR LIFE SPARKLES we constantly say “train your brain”. It believes what you tell it.
So love yourself. Care for yourself! Make a plan.
