I've been talking a lot about real Self Care on Social Media lately. In my posts and in my Facebook groups
For far too long we high achieving women have put ourselves too far down our priority list, and that to me is the ultimate in not looking after you and your needs.
You find yourself looking out for everyone else but yourself.
Is your team ok? Has your partner got everything he/she needs?
Are your children fully catered for, loved enough, given enough, hugged enough, nurtured enough, the list goes on? Have you looked after those family members that are in need? On top of that you worry about all the injustice and big issues going on in the world and your community. And yes, they are all important in your life, but where are you in that?
You've stopped looking after you and the cracks are being to show. Well, that stops here.
You might be in a corporate role, an on line entrepreneur or in a public sector leadership role, what you do doesn't matter to me. If you are a high achieving woman who's not looking after her needs, I'm asking you to sign up to this Next Level Woman's Manifesto. It's for you to simply take stock and look out for you.
You can chose which of these promises work for you, and sod the rest, but I want you to really consider each point and decide if you want to promise yourself these things and take action on it. If you do, read on.
Feeling overwhelmed and want calm. Take a seat.
If you are a high achieving woman feeling overwhelmed with the weight of all you have to do and the different roles you have to play every day, then this is for you.
I’ve been in your shoes. I’ve sat with my head in my hands, crying and scared not knowing what to do and shutting everyone out for fear they’d find out how burnt out I was. Listening to Gary Vee at this point will be the worst thing that you can do. You don’t need the hustle. You don’t need to push and keep up the grind. You aren’t able to give anymore.
Not until you have some peace, some calm and some clarity, and even then who says you have to do it that way.
That’s why I am here. I’m here to tell you there is a way forward. You can stop wearing the busy badge of honour. You can stop the hamster wheel. You can feel good about you again. You will take bold steps in the future but now, right now, we need to take care of you. We need to help you bounce back from these feelings of overwhelm, of lack, of resentment.
