In order for something to grow, you must nourish it. You feed your children, you feed your pets, and you feed yourself. If you want to learn a skill you must show up everyday and work on that skill. Nourish it until it grows.
If there is one thing that I have learned while being a health coach, it is that we must nourish OURSELVES as we nourish our business and every other aspect of our lives. Sometimes you can get so wrapped up in all the creativity, learning and excitement of running a business that you forget to take care of yourself.
REAL TALK: This is not a rant. It is simply words spoken from my heart that people need to hear!
Women at work always seem to be hassling me for ‘being healthy’. Yesterday morning they had a big waffle breakfast for our recent achievements. I chose to go to the breakfast, and I simply chose not eat because although I appreciated the gesture from our boss and thought it would be nice to socialize, I didn’t want to eat what was being provided.
This week I booked off some time to study & write my exams (which I aced by the way! Yay!) and with this time off a friend suggested I go check out the Scandinave Spa.
Now my immediate response was “I don’t have time” and as soon as the words left my mouth I heard an alarm in my head go off. This is something I have truly been working on over the past 6 months, the illusion of time. We all have the same amount of time in day, it is simply our choice how we spend our it.
