3 Things You Can Do to Take Care of Yourself Today
I know that you have a lot to do, but I can assure you that if you sleep more, you can actually get more stuff done. I am an early riser by nature, but once I became an entrepreneur I kept waking up earlier and earlier to get more stuff done. Yes, I got a lot done, but throughout the day I got less and less productive. It wasn’t until I actually began intentionally sleeping later in the morning that I discovered my productivity skyrocketed when I made sure to sleep at least 7 hours per night. Plus, it felt good!
Say No More Often
If you are anything like me, you love to help those around you. I am always the first in the family to jump in and do something for others. Need an errand ran? I’m on it? Need help with a project? Sure. I would always say yes to these requests.
Here’s the thing though, all of those times of saying yes are taking away from the things that you can be doing for yourself. Give yourself the grace to say no to these requests and take care to use your time for yourself. It will make a difference.
Yeah, yeah, we all need to eat healthier. We know that it should be done, but truthfully, when you eat healthier, your gut stays healthier and with a healthier gut, you become a happier person.
