Today, I begin the show by blowing the trumpet and giving you a wake-up call. This essay, inspired by the post of a dying member of our Facebook Group, Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women, instantly stops all of our protests to self-care.
Then I follow that up with this question… are you doing too much? Are you over producing?
The main part of the show has me sharing some thoughts about overcoming our natural need to ‘over produce’. You know this is you if you’re the last one out the door at work, if everyone comes to you to solve their problems, if you find yourself unable to say ‘No’.
Take a listen if you truly believe you don’t have time for self-care … or if you just want permission to be … good enough! Because honey – you most definitely do! This one’s for you.
You’ll find more about this idea of ‘overproduction’ in The Extremely Busy Woman’s Guide to Self-Care.
May today’s show get you to stop, think about how you’re using your time, and make choices that help you get back to YOU.
You can do it. I promise.
