Today I am stepping out of my normal posts to talk about life lately. The last month has been quite an emotional ride. Between dealing with some major changes at work, spring break vacation, sick kids, extended family “happenings”, end of the school year craze and stress – I am sick and worn down. Last week I was diagnosed with the worst case of strep throat I have ever experienced with a possibility of Mono. Yuck!
As I laid in bed for 3 days my head was spinning. My heart was hurting. My aura was angry. My body was worn down and waving the white flag. Then it hit me. Self Care – how come we always forgot that super important aspect in life especially when we need it most?
Self Care Tips That We All Need To Remember
I am not an expert at any of these tips and have a lot of work to do on my own self and self care but writing these out and thinking about each one has really brought me some peace and understanding of what my world has been lately. My happiness, my dreams, my work, my family, ME – truly depends on how I react to the elements of life. Time to jump in and remember these tips and continue a year of health with my family.

I'm all about going with my gut. If it feels wrong, it is wrong – for me at least!
Shirley Wood says
I'm glad you are feeling better. I know exactly what you are talking about. I just had a conversation with a relative a few days ago about how much work goes into blogging, he was shocked. You can easily wear yourself down, especially when God has blessed you with sponsored post….all at one time! It's so important to take time for yourself and just rest!
Rebecca Bryant says
I truly get this. My husband never understood how much work i did for blogging until he was home from work one day and saw for himself. Between phots, writing, social media and keeping the house clean he was exhausted from watching. Please take care of yourself.

These are some great tips. People do have to take care of themselves. Blogging is not easy!! Lots of hours and learning something new all the time. It does wear you down.
Jamie L. says
Great tips! I need to remember to take care of myself more. Being a mom, wife, and blogger get exhausting and I forget about me.
Cynthia Landrie says
I love all of these tips. I think he one that is so important to me is to listen to that little voice inside. It is usually right. At times my brain thinks it knows better, but it is usually wrong!

I can totally relate to all of this and self care is on my mind a lot lately. I struggle with the negative self talk and not finding me time. I hope you are feeling much better! <3
