“As a mom of two children, who owns her own business, who has a husband who works an hour away… trying to find the balance of healthy meals, self-care, family time, dating time, all the time—it might not always seem like it is possible. And that is a-okay.” [0:59]
“There’s this sense of hey, you have to be constantly available…[and] constant availability is a lot.” [3:21]
“When you are around people, you’re taking in their energy. So if they’re having negative energy, bad days, all the extra stuff, even though they might not talk about it, and you might not externally see it on them, a part of you is bringing that in no matter what your human design type is.” [7:54]
“99% of the time I do not take calls before 10 my time, and that gives me time to do more self-care, that allows me to get my work out in, that allows me to journal, that allows me to get everything else get done that I need to get done, so that I am showing up from a less stressed, more aligned place” [14:22]
“Remember: Set clear boundaries. Prioritize your self-care. Delegate tasks that you don’t need to do and incorporate your family into that.” [18:55]
