PS - Sound impossible? Start small. Write out one way you can prioritize yourself tomorrow. Coffee with the sunrise. Cancelling dinner plans you aren’t psyched about. Going to a yoga class. Schedule it in to your day and stick to it. Write back and tell me what you’re going to do!
PPS - If you’re looking for reliable ways to care for yourself, my Empowered You Membership gives you the opportunity to consistently practice prioritizing YOU with on-demand virtual yoga classes.
