As working moms, we often forget to take care of ourselves.
I hear all the time from moms that they don’t have time for sleep, healthy food, or exercise.
But I recently got a sobering reminder that health is EVERYTHING.
What happened was that I got sick.
Like never before.
My symptoms came on quickly, without warning.
At 11:00 am I was feeling fine, outside with my son. By 1:00 pm, I was completely incapacitated.
I was able to talk with a doctor online and start taking medication within a few hours.
I spent the rest of the day in bed with fever and chills.
Thankfully, the next day I woke up feeling better.
Sometimes, even if we take care of ourselves, we still get sick. That’s what happened to me.
But there is so much that we CAN control that we often don’t, because we don’t think we have time.
The sleep, the exercise, the healthy food.
Here’s what stood out to me when I was sick: I literally couldn’t take care of anyone else.
I couldn’t make dinner for my kids.
I couldn’t work.
I couldn’t do ANYTHING.
When you go through something like this, you realize that you don’t have time to NOT take care of yourself.
There IS a way to find time for your own health as a working mom.
There is always a way. Because without it, there is nothing else.
You don’t have to wait until you have a health emergency.
If you’re a working mom who struggles with trying to fit in your own health while juggling career and kids, let’s chat.
We’ll talk about all the things you want—including amazing heath. We’ll talk about what’s keeping you from getting them. And we’ll create a plan to help you get what you want. It’s easy, it’s fun, and it’s FREE.
