Alrighty, so let’s get started with Tip #2!
When I was going through my mess of frustration, confusion and pure exhaustion, I only had enough energy to do the things I absolutely had to do – and taking time out for myself wasn’t one of them. I was doing everything and being everywhere for everyone else, that by the time I realized I wanted to do something for myself, I was burnt out because all I had was leftovers. Can you relate?
Just like you can’t get much use out of your phone if the battery isn’t charged, we can’t be much to anyone else if we don’t recharge our own batteries. I realized that I was living on “E” for a really long time which is what caused me to fall victim to LIAM disEase. Have you lost your identity after motherhood? The epiphany for me came when I started making choices in my life to make myself more of a priority. When I started communicating to my husband about my needs, and creating time for them, I was in a much happier place. I started getting used to saying no even to things I really wanted to say yes to. Did you hear that? Start saying no to things even if you really want to say yes. If you have too much on your plate, it’s because you put it there.
I know because I was there and still have to make a conscious effort to stay away from there. I love what my coach, Doreen Rainey told me: Anytime anyone ever asks you for something (whether it be personal or business), don’t answer them right away if you have a hard time saying no. Start saying things like, “let me think about it” or “let me check my calendar”. This has forced me to get into the habit of making sure I’m not over-extending myself. In doing so, it means I can have more time for me on my calendar, which allows me to recharge my battery.
What things do you like to do to recharge your battery? What challenges do you face when it comes time to recharge?
