Is it hard to make time for yourself?

There is just so much to do, right?!

Between getting to work, taking care of your family, spending time with friends, getting to the gym, grocery shopping, paying bills, cleaning the house, and email – there is always email.

Whew! I’m tired just thinking about all the stuff we all to do. No wonder so many of us feel depleted and stressed out.  There is not time for meditation, journaling, or self-reflection with our endless to-do lists and obligations.

But do we really not have the time? Or is it more true to say we do not make the time?

We all have the same number of hours in a day and it is our responsibility to use them wisely. If we consistently put ourselves on the back burner and are easily distracted by our to-do list, eventually the lack of self-care catches up with us.

Why is carving out time for ourselves so challenging?

You may think it is because you are busy, but perhaps there is actually another reason.  Consider that the reason you are not making time for self-care is because being with yourself is uncomfortable. Busy-ness is often a distraction from feeling feelings we want to avoid.

This is exactly what was uncovered in my coaching session with Joanne who is a busy mom who could not figure out why she was not making time to nurture herself. She knew self-care was important and wanted to do it; yet each time she attempted it, she found herself distracted by a to-do item.

If you are a parent this is a MUST listen and even if you are not, you will gleam powerful insights.

And some BIG NEWS: we figured out a way to get all previous episodes of Over it and On With It up on iTunes!! So those of you who are newer listeners can go and binge listen.  Just go here.

Sending you tons of love and a reminder that making self-care a #1 priority is actually the most giving thing you can do.  The better you are to you, the better you will be to others.
