Do you feel yourself pulled in every direction, everyone needing something from you? That is very common for women. You feel like you need to put everyone else first, work, spouse, and children. There is a lot of pressure to make everything Pinterest-perfect, and that doesn’t leave a lot of time for you! Burning the candle at all ends just leaves you exhausted and frustrated, and you don’t want that!
Here are 20 things we do to put ourselves first!!
1. Getting nails done
2. Going shopping or window shopping
3. Virtual races and working out
4. Read a book
5. Enjoy a meal cooked by someone else
6. Have a leisurely bath
7. Go to sleep early
8. Take a walk
9. Give yourself a facial
10. Buy yourself flowers
11. Do a light yoga routine
12. Lay in the sunshine
13. Write in your journal or gratitude book
14. Do a puzzle or crossword
15. Watch a sappy chick flick
16. Have a cup of coffee
17. Try something new
19. Bake cupcakes (protein cupcakes work too!)
20. Get dolled up- hair, make-up, and outfit (Get it girl!)
We want you to know that it is not selfish to put yourself first, it is actually the kindest thing you can do for your family as well as yourself!! If mom’s happy, everyone’s happy!! We want our children to look to us and know from our example that they can do it all too. It won’t all be perfect, far from it, but when they see us happy, they know that they can be happy too when they grow up.
Make yourself happy, it is the best gift you can give.
