Are you taking care of everyone else, but yourself?

As women, we are nurtures, caretakers, moms, wives, full-time students, stay at home moms, we have a full-time job some of us have two. We are everything to everyone. Leaving us feeling overwhelmed, stressed, depressed, tired, and at times you may feel like giving up. Well, ladies what if I told you that I have a 5 step guide to self-care for the busy woman, would you be interested?

Gratitude

Wake-up every morning before you start your day, and give God thanks, and praise, have a positive mindset, and a heart of gratitude.

Time Management

Time management is a challenge for women as we juggle different roles, but it is essential. Creating a weekly schedule will keep you organized and save you time.

Loving Yourself Unconditionally

You need to love yourself because self-love brings you total awareness to the present moment of your life especially from the endless hustle of life.

You cannot truly love another until you know how to love yourself. Quite simply, you cannot give what you don’t have and have not experienced.

Meditation

Will help you focus and understand your mind, eventually reaching a higher level of awareness and inner calm.

Neurologists have found that regular meditation changes your brain in ways that can help you to control emotions, enhance concentration, decrease stress, and even become more connected to those around you.

Practice Daily Affirmation

Speak life into yourself every day and declare and decree over your life. Challenge yourself when your inner critic tells you negative remarks. Replace those negative thoughts with affirmations such as; I am loved; I am beautiful, I am highly favored, I am destined for greatness, I am fearfully, and wonderfully made, I am God’s masterpiece.

You cannot give what you don’t have. Keep yourself full. Fill yourself up, When you’re overflowing you have so much more to give. — Oprah Winfrey

There are tons of little steps that you can take to care for yourself better. You’ll feel better and more present for the times that matter.
