to take care of myself again! As a mom, wife, nurse, etc it is too easy to forget about ME. I have gained weight, eat crappy or not at all, I go to bed late, forgot about exercise, and drink waaay too much coffee…and guess what? It is all showing in my tight clothes, blemished skin and weak immune system. (can you say 3 week cold?) I need to remember that I’m a priority, too, and that taking time to buy healthy food, to exercise and to leave the dishes for another time are important. These steps will help my physical and mental well-being as I traverse through stressful times in my life.
I also need to focus on my spirituality and faith. Another area in my life that gets neglected when I’m stressed. And honestly that’s the place I should be running to during these times.
