Take Care of You


Loved the replies I received about what’s working and what isn’t in response to my last post. Here’s the link (ICYMI) about taking this mid-ish-year moment to get things back on track.
One theme in the replies that really hit me was the sense of overwhelm that y’all are battling right now. So, while I absolutely do think it’s important to reflect and embrace a mid-year refresh, I also want to remind you of how essential it is to take a deep breath, relax, and remember to enjoy the ride. 
Let’s dive into how we can get back on track with our goals while infusing joy into the journey. Life & time goes by in a blink, let’s make sure to enjoy it. So while you’re taking time to reflect and pull goals into a realignment, I want to encourage a layering in a bit of self-care:
Embrace the Power of Small Steps:

Okay, let’s ditch the overwhelming pressure of massive leaps. Instead, break your goals into bite-sized pieces. Remember, every step forward counts, no matter how big or small–treat it like savoring your favorite dessert one spoonful at a time. 
Trust me, this approach makes it all more manageable and enjoyable. Celebrate every teeny tiny victory along the way, and let your wins fuel your motivation. Progress is progress, no matter the size!

Nurturing Your Well-Being:

Listen, I will shout this until the end of time, self-care is not a luxury; it’s a necessity and how we can actually show up fully as ourselves. It’s about taking care of your beautiful self on this journey.
Make time for activities that recharge your soul. Maybe it’s a stroll in nature, journaling your thoughts, or just staring off into space for a bit. Whatever it is, give yourself permission to prioritize self-care guilt-free. Your well-being is the very foundation for achieving your goals.

Infusing Joy into the Process:

Who said pursuing goals should be a mundane chore? Sprinkling in joy is KEY to making moves and staying in flow. Again, be sure to celebrate each milestone, no matter how small, and let yourself soak up the excitement of progress.
Find fun in the journey by exploring new approaches and ideas, connecting with like-minded humans, and embracing the little pleasures of life. After all, what’s the point of reaching our goals if we forget to enjoy the ride?

Sure mid-year is a beautiful opportunity to recalibrate our goals and get back on track. But let’s also remember to take care of our precious selves and find joy in every moment.
Trusting ourselves and the process–and enjoying the experiences, growth, and happiness we encounter along the way–keeps the spark of fun alive.
How are you going to take care of yourself as you reorient to your goals? What small joys can you find along the way? Next up on the blog: helping you find joy even in the things that are NOT the most enjoyable (but have to get done).
