Ladies - it's time to stop using your business as an excuse for why you can't practice self-care.⠀
⠀
I've heard all of these excuses from women in the past two weeks: ⠀
⠀
"I am so busy with my business...so I can't make time for myself....or I can't exercise....or I can't take a bath...or I can't meditate....or I can't attend this event that would fill my Soul...and I can't join this mastermind....because I'm just overwhelmed with how busy my business is....I'm sure you understand.'⠀
⠀
No.  Actually I don't understand - because I don't choose to let my business run me.⠀
⠀
I run my business.⠀
⠀
Meaning, I prioritize self-care.  I prioritize receiving support through coaching, peer-groups, masterminds, etc.  I prioritize my personal growth before my business - because I'm not willing to have a business that is built on fumes where I am teetering on the verge of burnout.⠀
⠀
And you shouldn't either. ⠀
⠀
But yet, I continue to see this happening over and over again - especially with women.⠀
⠀
So what do we do about it?⠀
⠀
Well...start with challenging the limiting belief that if you take a few hours away from your business so that you can receive support, that it will fall apart. ⠀
⠀
Challenge the belief that responding to emails is more important that you eating a healthy meal.⠀
⠀
Challenge the belief that you need to do it all on your own and it is weak to ask for support.⠀
⠀
Challenge the belief that it is selfish to invest in yourself. ⠀
⠀
Challenge the belief that you need to give to everyone else (your kids, your spouse, your clients, etc) and that there just isn't time to give to you.⠀
⠀
And then remember that practicing self-care can start with small steps. ⠀⠀
It looks like taking a bath.  Journaling.  Calling a mentor.  Or a coach.  Or a friend.  Gathering with girlfriends. Taking a week off and going on a retreat that will fill your Soul. ⠀
⠀
Whatever it is, just take care of you...because you are worth it. ⠀
⠀
Because if you are too busy to practice self-care...you are too busy.  Period. ⠀
