I ran into 2019 full force and I literally realized last night I had not stopped. So many amazing changes happening but I didn't realize I hadn't stopped to tend to myself until yesterday morning when I woke up covered in hives from head to toe. It looked like scratches all over my body! I felt jittery, I couldn't even sit down. It was like all of a sudden everything caught up to me. I immediately went to CVS and picked up some Benadryl and Aveeno to relieve my skin. I took a hot bath and realized how drained I was and how I had not been tending to "MY" needs. I am always such a super mom/ power boss that I forgot that I am human and I am not a robot like I tend to think I am. I feel like when you get to a level of performing nonstop your personality may tend to shift because you aren't as happy go lucky as you may usually be. Being tired leads to being fatigued and not having the energy or the wants to do much of anything. I realized I was snappier and I wasn't as upbeat.
Overall, I can say 2019 has gotten off to a great start but I need to remember to take better care of myself. Back to working out, meditating, reading my bible and eating healthy! What are some of your habits that make you feel better? How do you take care of yourself?
