Keeping Self-Care Alive

For this article by Jo Ilfeld, Executive Leadership Coach on self-care, the image shows a woman sitting by a window with a warm cup of tea or coffee in her hands.

How do you make time for self-care when your to-do list overflowing?

I don’t have any wisdom to offer you on how to manage your to-do lists but I do have one thing to share that I believe is very important in times of increased stress and overwhelm.

It’s okay to cut back on your self-care routines, whatever they may be, but don’t give them up completely during the busy periods.

Why? Because when the busy periods are over, as they always do come to an end, it will be that much harder to pick back up your self-care practices again because it will feel like you are starting at ground zero.
So cut way back but don’t give them up completely.

What self-care practices are you committed to keeping on your schedule, no matter how busy things become? Watch my video for more.

Learn how to take a mini reset.
