Hey guys, I l know that Valentineâ€™s Day is officially over, but itâ€™s still the month of Love and the theme of Self-love is still in the air! Frankly, we need to be making time for ourselves everyday!
Itâ€™s almost crazy for me to be teaching self-love because it isnâ€™t something that comes natural to me. I sometimes forget to eat, I will work until I have strained my neck, I will get stressed out and keep working instead of taking a much needed break to breath, do some yoga or meditate. I guess that saying, â€œYou teach what you need the most,â€ rings true for me! I know that when I do take the time for myself, I feel so much better and I work more productive, and I am a much better mother! I belive us women, are conditioned to out ourselves on the back burner and we need to collectively shift this energy! We will be better mothers, wives, and workers if we take better care of ourselves!
I realized the other day as I was rushing through the daily activity of brushing my teeth, that by just slowing down and being completely present to activity of brushing my teeth and mindful of doing it correctly was an act of self-love! Just sending myself loving thoughts will shift my energy!
