Finding yourself run down all the time. Making yourself have energy to get to that sports game, to get groceries, or read that bedtime story. Working your butt off at your career, to come home and work your butt of at parenting.
Are we being the best we can be, by being completely run down, and running off fumes?
I find myself in this position, all to often. I want to be the best in my career, at parenting, and life. Putting all my energy into these categories, to find myself completely run down, exhausted, sick and making trips to the doctors. In reality. I am not being the best at my career, parenting or life. I am running around as a zombie. Forgetting things, getting upset at my son for not picking up lego, forgetting to make time with friends.
Its easy to get caught up in the moment, and live the fast life. We need to take a step back and care about our mental and physical health. Take that time for a coffee date, for a yoga session, and making good meals. These simple things we forget about, are actual the key ingredients to being great at your career, parenting and life.
When we feel good about our mental and physical state, It gives us the drive to succeed, the energy to continue on, the feeling of well being. It keeps us from burn outs and break downs.
YOUR HEALTH MATTERS
