When things hit the fan and aren’t working out the way you want them to and when the demands of others starts to become overwhelming, what do you do? Many people look to create some margin in their lives and the thing that they look to cut out of their lives are items for their own self care. Things like coaching, friendship, spending time with family, working out, eating well, etc. When things are going tough, who takes care of you?
The problem with always subordinating your needs in the service of something or someone else is that if you aren’t good for yourself, it’s difficult to be worthwhile for others. You may be nodding your head and thinking, yes this makes sense. When real life hits, you typically fold your plans in favor of someone else’s.
This week’s podcast is about the dangers of letting your self care go in favor of busyness and activity. I hope you enjoy this week’s perspective. If this show was useful, please share it.
