I am always doing research and follow up stories on how to improve my life, my experiences and the world around me. And so far I have found that the common denominator among successful people is taking care of yourself first. Its difficult to make decisions,, business or otherwise if you are not at 100% with yourself.
“All work and no self-care makes for an unhappy Black Woman”-Rosetta Thurman..-founder and CEO of Happy Black Woman.
“taking care of yourself is the best selfish thing you can do”-Oprah Winfrey
I enjoy my work both as an educator and a blogger/crafter. But I know at some point I have to ‘turn off” and relax and take care of myself. I see a lot of fellow educators, leaving the school often times three or four hours after school has ended for the day, then they take home bundles of work to do at home. Doing this day after day can be extremely exhausting.
Its okay to do for others, but make sure you’re putting that same energy into yourself. What does your self care consist of?
Below is a list of self care ideas that can help you relax and enjoy yourself. Rather you run a fortune 500 company, a small business or your home, you need to be in top notch shape to do your best.
Don’t hesitate to show yourself some love. Its OK to put yourself first. Success comes with taking care of you.
Mondays are always a good day to start something new, try making it a Monday routine to carve out some me time for yourself.
Until next time…..Love You!

One thought on “Turn off”
Love this. And you’re right we have to place ourselves at the forefront or else how can we remain productive. We can’t give from an empty tank. I had to learn this the hard way. I listen to Rosetta Thurman as well.
