Okay, I am talking to all of you female Entrepreneurs out there!!
Ever have a week where you are exhausted but you just keep going, too much to be done!! THEN….you get sick or have a migraine or just collapse!!
Sometimes you even keep working while you are sick!! THIS is NOT a good thing!! It seems like everywhere you turn, someone is shouting at you about how you can only be successful with hard work & consistency.
While this IS true, to an extent, we sometimes go way TOO far with it!!
I was talking with a fellow female entrepreneur this morning & it just so happens we have both been sick for a couple of weeks now. We are both trying to build our businesses & we are just starting out. We have been working hard to get all the things done that are required & trying to keep up with social media, etc.
We realized this week that enough is enough!! Our bodies are trying to tell us to slow down a bit!!
When you are working alone as you start up your business, you feel like you don’t really have a choice!! If you don’t do it, no one will. BUT, I learned years ago when I was working as a nurse that you have to listen to your body!! I just forgot that part in all the excitement of the start-up!!
I had a coaching session this morning which I kept, then I took a nap & when I got up, I had decided to just skip the post this week. BUT…..something kept nagging at me so I sat down at the computer & just sat here.
Then I decided I wanted to share this nugget of truth…..if you don’t take care of yourself & let your body rest when it needs to, you will fail!!
Yes, we have a lot to do & consistency is a key component, but so is SELF-CARE!!
We need to schedule in regular self-care time to just sit outside & read or drink a cup of our favorite tea or take a bubble bath!! Whatever refuels your batteries, you need to do!!
So, I have met my commitment of one blog post a week & one video on YouTube a week!! NOW…..I am taking a few days off to recharge & get well!! I will mostly be unplugged, but will check back occasionally to read your comments!!
