I want to help you make time for the things that matter most in your life. What if you could ALWAYS have time for the important things in your life, PLUS have time for yourself as well?
The first step is KNOWING what those important things are Sit down with a pen and paper and jot down ALL the things that are important to you; this a time to be honest with yourself to find out what really matters most.
Next, pick your top 5 (Don’t worry if you don’t have 5; you can start with one or two if you like; the key is to start with something)
To get you started, I have given you a list of my Top Five Priorities: feel free to use them if they resonate with you, or use them as inspiration for you own:
1-Physical, Mental, and Emotional Health 2-Intuition and Spiritual Connection 3-Relationships-Family and Friends 4-Financial Foundation 5-Career and Work-How Can I Make An Impact On Others And Make A Difference!
When you prioritize, I want your well being to be first on the list This may be difficult, and I understand it will be hard to put yourself ahead of everything else.
Before you totally shut me down, I would like you to consider a few things first:
By NOT putting yourself first, you are doing the people you love a disservice AND are cheating yourself out of being the best version you can be for them. You can’t give people the best version of yourself if you are exhausted, overcommitted, and depleted. It is physically impossible to have the energy to care for others if you don’t have enough energy to care for yourself. If you were riding in an airplane and the oxygen masks dropped because of a sudden decrease in cabin pressure, how useful would you be if you started helping everyone else put on THEIR oxygen masks BEFORE yours?
Put on your own oxygen mask first. If you want to live life instead of life living you, and teach your children to do the same, you cannot put yourself last on the list.
Let’s Recap! Pick five most important things in your life (or one or two or three) Whatever you choose, put yourself first.
When you make the commitment to implement a change in your routine, and life starts to get in the way, I want you to look at your list and ask yourself, “Does this align with my top five priorities in the order in which they appear?”
If it does NOT align with your top five priorities, then let it go!
Love, Cindy xoxo
