Hello, wonderful you. How are you? Hope all is well, and you’re great!!!
I’ve been thinking about how much pressure I’ve been putting on myself these past couple of weeks to be creative, to get things done, to not let time go by unnoticed. To finish reading, to write a blog post, to shop, to prepare, to go to appointments, to post on social media, (and BTW you can follow me here) until it finally dawned on me that I’m totally stressing myself out with gogogo and dododo and not taking time out to just be.
So here’s a thought for you:
Make your life a little easier this week and let go of having to be superwoman, things do not have to be perfect, you don’t have to finish every single project on your list. Prioritize. Cut yourself some slack. Perfectionism is overrated. It’s ok not to know everything.
Remember you, remember to take out time to nourish and refresh every single day, if something you planned is not working out perfect, that’s ok, maybe it’s not meant to.
Say ‘no’ to one invitation and instead take that time for you. Relax.
Take daily breaks to just be quiet, if you’re working give yourself a mental break, go outside and have your lunch alone, eat your lunch in a park, in a restaurant by a window and watch all the people walking by. If you’re in a safe place, close your eyes for a few minutes and breathe in deep.
Give yourself a little pampering, get a cuppa, put your feet up you can do the laundry later. Take a bath, light a candle, infuse the water with essential oil scents that are calming for your senses, like Lavender and Eucalyptus. Give yourself a social media break and spend that time instead in quiet bliss.
Once or twice, or however many times you want, get take out so you don’t have to cook.
Listen to soft music, dance in your living room, read something uplifting. Fill yourself with positive vibes. Say some positive uplifting affirmations. Give yourself a pep talk, you can do it, you’re amazing, you’re strong and powerful.
Do something every day that makes you happy.
And make things a little easier for yourself.
Let me know what you think, leave a comment, love to know.
Have a great, wonderful week ahead. Blessings.
