We all know how important self-care is, but putting this into practice is often the biggest challenge; especially with busy lives, lots of responsibilities on our shoulders and the constant curve balls that come our way.
When we feel exhausted, anxious and overwhelmed the first thing we ditch is self-care. We tell ourselves that we don’t have the time, energy, head space, or even money, to make those necessary changes or to focus on ourselves. Our inner voice is telling us to choose the path we know, to not rock the boat and to accept what we already have.
We’re also extremely aware of the needs of other people and we do anything we can to avoid judgement, rejection and criticism. Instead of making our decisions from a place of authenticity, we make our decisions from a place of wanting to please and to avoid conflict.
