Staying Grounded…

Sometimes life gets CRAZY!!! We are in the middle of buying and selling homes right now, with an impending move Thanksgiving weekend. Lately, I haven’t been making time to take proper care of myself and boy am I feeling the effects! I looked at myself in the mirror the other day and realized I need to make myself more of a priority.

The fact is, as Americans, we are always GOING, GOING, GOING. We rarely take time to stop and smell the roses. All this running around really takes a toll on our bodies. Many of us have adrenal fatigue, exhaustion and poor sleep.

When we treat our bodies poorly and don’t make ourselves a priority, our body shows us it is unhappy by giving us clues. We start to get bags or dark circles under our eyes. We get sick frequently. We get aches and pains and start to feel sluggish.

The holiday season is an especially hectic time for most of us. Take some time to treat yourself right NOW before we get into the full swing of the holidays. Get a massage, a pedicure or a new haircut. Treat yourself to a new yoga class, meditation group or even a boot camp to get the blood flowing.

Making yourself a priority is not selfish, it is a necessity. You can’t help others unless you are taking proper care of yourself!
