How often do you think about self care?
Do you feel overwhelmed with the pace of your life? Do you feel like everyone gets your time and energy, except you? Do you feel weighed down physically and emotionally?
As women, we are often so busy taking care of others that we neglect to take care of ourselves. Neglecting our own self care can leave us feeling resentful, unfulfilled and overwhelmed. Filling our schedules with activities we feel obligated to do become burdens and deplete our energy. Additionally, a lack of self care can rob us of the desire to create and live a joyful life.
If this sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place. My name is Karen Crow, and I’ve worked in the Health and Wellness industry for 20 years. I’ve seen women struggle to take care of themselves and often had the same struggles myself. When I worked full time, I didn’t want to spend the time or money on myself and the same was true when I became a stay at home mom. I felt guilty about taking time for myself, because I felt as if I hadn’t earned it, even though I was saying ‘yes’ to everyone else. All this left me feeling constantly overwhelmed and depleted of energy and real joy.
After a few sessions with a life coach, I was able to leave a job that had become toxic. After continued coaching sessions, I learned how to start taking exceptional care of myself. Now, as a Life Coach myself, I teach other women to do the same.
