Remember self care and saying no now and then
You know those weeks where your body goes on strike and reminds you that you can’t actually do everything, all the time, and at some point you’re going to have to stop and take care of yourself? Yeah, I’ve had one of those weeks.
Like lots of people out there I was struck down by the nasty cold that’s been going around. Fresh off the back of working 18 hour days on Fringe in the ‘Stings. Was I surprised? Yes. Was anyone else around me? Nope.
It’s been a timely reminder for me that self care is important, and that it’s ok to say no to things.
As women and business people especially, it’s hard to fight against the expectation that you can be all things at all times. I’m certainly guilty of feeling like I needed to be able to handle everything perfectly no matter what is going on around me. And while getting sick is never the way you want to learn these lessons, I guess if you’re not listening to your body’s cues, at some point it’s going to go on strike.
