I have a confession to make…
I forgot to eat today. In all the hustle and bustle of running an errand I forgot to do yesterday, being on a training call (and missing the SECOND call because there wasn’t enough time), back-to-back interviews for my upcoming telesummit, delivering client work, and shuffling two loads of laundry through the machine and out onto the line, I forgot to eat.
And if you know me at all, you’ll know I NEVER miss a meal!
When anybody asks me if I’m hungry, they’re usually met with a withering stare and the snarky “That’s a dumb question! I’m ALWAYS hungry!”
(Only exaggerating a little bit about the snark…)
But today, I had second breakfast at 9:30 – before the back-to-back phone calls and then…
I realized at 5:30 when Ben came home that it wasn’t that I didn’t have a plan for dinner I was so hungry a plan completely eluded me. Hello! Card-carrying adult here. Not much of an excuse for such a poor job of self-care for the day. (As an FYI: Ben & I trade off on dinner duty!)
You know that I’m all about self-care when it comes to regular camping trips for my creativity. But sometimes I do let the rest of it… slip.
To help us BOTH out, here are my favorite resources for daily self-care that YOU can integrate into your day, week, job, business, and life. And tomorrow? I’m not going to forget to eat!
What about you? What do you do for self-care to make sure you stay on track? Leave me a comment below!
