Summer can be so relaxing! Or, not so much…
If you are like me, you are knee deep in trying to keep kids home on summer school breaks busy and active. It gets really tiring, doesn’t it? It does for me! Sometimes, you just have to slow down to renew the much-needed energy to keep up with everything.
My tip for doing so?
Show up for yourself! As a busy mom and business owner, I know that SO often I am putting everyone else before myself. While some of that is unavoidable, I have realized that I have to make a concerted effort to take time for me.
How do I show up for myself?
I take time for me. Even if it is five minutes during nap time or ten minutes before I go to bed, I do something that fills me up. Have a glass of wine, take a bubble bath, or catch up with a friend. There is something to be said for putting others first and serving those you love most, but you really do have to show up for YOU to be able to do everything else well.
This summer, showing up for me has been the best way to relax and rejuvenate! I highly recommend it!
