3 Self-Care Ideas For The Busy Working Woman

I see you working hard in that 9 to 5 wishing you had more time in the day to practice self-care. I remember those days, as a manager leading a team I wanted to lead by example, so instead of being late I would rush out the house too busy to even eat breakfast. I would make coffee at the office and then use caffeine and the responsibilities of work to get me through a 9 to 10 hour day. But soon it all came crumbling down as my health took a unhealthy turn and caused me to but myself back on the agenda.

Look, I don't want chronic illness to be your wake up call. I want you to be full of energy, health and well-being to do the task at hand. I want you to lead your team by showing them self-care actually makes you a better boss (because you will be less stressed). Everyone wins when self-care is practiced. This blog post is for all those working professional career driven women. Read below for 3 ways to incorporate your self-care.

So the truth is even if you only get up 15 minutes earlier then you do now and dedicate that time to self-care you can get done 2 to 3 things within that 15 minutes time period. It doesn't have to be long, the most important thing is that you start, increase, and maintain self-care for your optimal health.
