Everywhere I turn...stress and anxiety is on the increase. It doesn't matter how old you are, where you live, or what you do....stress is taking over...followed by anxiety, a close second.
When did this become the new norm?
The demands to live a perfect, productive, efficient life has significantly increased over time and most of us are just rolling with it instead of stopping and asking ourselves "Is this working for me? What am I trying to prove here?"
The truth is, no one is going to give you a medal if you manage to clean your entire house in one day or if you stay up till 9pm doing emails. I can appreciate project deadlines and setting up for the family Christmas party but this being a daily occurrence? Nope! Unacceptable!
At what point do you start valuing you? Valuing your time? Your energy? Your wellbeing?
If you don't take care of you and make yourself priority....NO ONE ELSE WILL! So if you are waiting for someone to give you permission to slow down or rest...it ain't coming!
So...what if you started small...what is one thing you can add or remove from your day today as a way of honouring you and your wellbeing?
