self care

9/21/16


today i woke up feeling off. i don't know if i'm starting to get sick, or just feeling worn down by the last couple of weeks which have been crazy, but i was not myself. and i haven't been feeling 100% the last couple of days.

so after my morning pilates session i made the decision to take the day off. no responsibilities. no to do list. i committed to resting and recharging. and i think sometimes people brush over how important days like these are. sometimes i feel guilty about not moving forward or getting everything that i "need" to get done on a given day. but then i try to remind myself that it's okay to be selfish and take some time for yourself. and sometimes by doing that, you are better able to serve yourself and others in the days to come. make sense?

so i just wanted to make a quick post and remind everyone (and myself) that it's okay to take some time for yourself. be kind to yourself. listen to what you need. and continue to accomplish great things! :)
