Self Care

In our day to day it seems like a lot of effort to take the time to give ourselves the care we deserve and need. In order for us to perform at our highest levels and love with open arms we have to make sure we have a solid foundation within ourselves. We can not take care of others without taking care of ourselves first. As cliche as that sounds its more than true. I have listed some of the actions and steps I have taken to make, and take the time to center myself. It's easy to neglect taking care of ourselves. Self care prevents overload burnout, it reduces the negative effects of stress and helps you refocus and stay focused. I challenge you to pick 5 activities and incorporate them into your week. You will feel refreshed and realigned.
