Time to Take Care of You
As a busy entrepreneur that works from home, I sometimes forget to take care of myself. I take care of my clients and their clients, I take care of running my business, I take care of my family, I take care of my dog, I take care of coordinating schedules, making dinner, well let’s just say I take care of a lot of things.
In taking care of all these people, beings and things I sometimes forget to take care of myself. If I don’t take care of myself, I’m not going to be able to take care of everyone else.
In an effort to take better care of myself I have made a few changes to my routine. I now go for a hike with my dog (and neighbor) every morning before I start work. We hike for at least 1 hour everyday. I am thankful that I live where I live. My house is located right next to the trailhead leading in to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
I am also giving myself special treats. For instance, I’m now only using high quality soap that smells amazing. No more grocery store soap for me. I get my soap from The Bath Nook. The Oatmeal soap is my favorite! I’m telling you this is the best soap ever! My family loves it too.
One more thing I am doing to take care of myself is to have organic fruit and vegetables delivered to my home. Planet Organics delivers a $32 box of fresh organic fruits and vegetables to my house every other week. Yummy!

Thanks, Sally! Love this post! It’s so true … I think this year has been tough on a lot of people, but the way to get through it is to pay attention to what your body is telling you. Do you need to eat healthier? Do you need more exercise? Do you need some down time?
By getting in touch with ourselves, we become happier, healthier and more productive.
