042: I've Fallen Off
Today's episode is a little different than our usual Simple Saturday's and that's because I need to hold myself accountable.
I talk a lot about doing the things that make us feel fulfilled, fill our cup and make us happy so that we can, in return, be better & more present moms. I am here today to tell you that I have not being doing those things. In fact, I've been treating myself like an a**hole. I have been the biggest jerk to myself. For the past couple months I have been eating terribly, I have been on social media for hours everyday and I haven't been meditating or journaling.
I have not been doing anything for self-care and in fact, I have been doing the opposite. This is really getting to me. I haven't been sleeping properly, I'm always tired, my mind races a lot, I'm constantly distracted & can't focus.
But I made a decision to stop! I jumpstarted this by doing a 60-hour water fast in order to hit the reset button. Beyond that, I have committed myself to the following: 20 minutes of movement, maximum of 2 hours on social media and reading of 15-20 pages of a personal development book everyday.
I wanted to share this with you because I know it's easy to talk-the-talk but it is harder to walk-the-walk. I have fallbacks and slip-ups as well but the important piece is that I always get back up and get back into the swing of things.
And let me tell you, I already feel SO much better!
So, if you've also been feeling unfulfilled and like you've fallen off a bit, then I encourage you to join me in these coming weeks of picking 1-3 things that you know will make you feel happy & fulfilled. Then start implementing them TODAY!
