In the last couple of weeks I have been a little bit off my game. It has taken awhile since I’ve returned from my Eat, Pray, Love trip to Australia and Hawaii to feel a little tired. In fact, I’m not just a little tired-I’m really tired. It has been an intense past 4 months. Returning to America, rebooting my life, and starting a new freelance career. It has been exhilarating, challenging, intense and exhilarating.
Now, I’m tired.
I realize that the months of pitching, sharing my story, being focused has worn me out just a little bit. It’s time to focus on some self-care. Fortunately, I am now able to make some adjustments to add some balance to my life and think it’s a good time to share some tips so that you can focus on wellness too!
Listen to Your Body
Your body will send you signs when it’s out of balance. For me I began to get very tired. And I started forgetting things (like my post for yesterday) and I’m a little more edgy. Since I’m feeling tired and obvious fix is to get more sleep. So, that’s what I’ll focus on for the next couple of weeks.
Focus On Your People
You want to make sure that you’re tending the important relationships in your life. Make sure to spend time with the ones that you love. Meet for coffee, go for a walk, just make sure it’s some FaceTime. We all need people. Don’t take the ones in your life for granted.
Manage Toxic Situations
Sometimes we find ourselves in toxic situations. In those moments it’s really important to take a step back and decide how we’re going to manage what could potentially be detrimental for you.
It’s important to ask the following question “Are you doing a good job taking care of yourself?” If you feel the answer is “No” take some time to figure out what you can do to manage your situation better.
