Do you schedule time to take care of you? If you are like most Moms I know, remembering to recharge your batteries and pamper yourself is last in a long list of must dos and budget priorities. Today wraps up our last post in a 6 part series on Simple Stated, Real Simple Magazine’s Blog. Created in partnership with Real Simple and Samsung, the series is rooted in the question, “Why work harder?” Each installment focuses on a topic that when tamed, can make a busy woman’s life work smart so she doesn’t have to work hard.
I’m not sure why its so hard for women to take care of themselves but if I know nothing I think we can all agree ~ if Mama’s not happy, no one is happy. An excerpt from the post:
Think ahead: Schedule as many hair or nail appointments as you can in advance. Mark them in your calendar so you’ll never forget to touch up your roots or have to cope with a shaggy head of hair.
Taking care of ourselves first is the same as making sure you put on your oxygen and then help those around you. You can’t rule your world one color coded day at a time any other way so stop by and check out the rest of the article ~ I’d love to know what you think!
