Honestly, I don’t know how many times I tell myself this, but I never, everrrr seem to quiet get it 🤷🏼♀️I’m blatantly stealing this from @helainastoreywedidngdesign and whilst I might have allowed myself a little plugged in moment to share this with you, today has otherwise been blissfully unplugged. And I feel a gazillion times better for it.
As someone who finds it so, so, so, so hard to ‘switch off’ and be fully mindful/engage with non-screen based activities (given my job as a blogging business owner), I feel it’s of vital importance I force myself to have days like these on a regular basis. It’s also important, I feel, to own up to how hard I find it to balance my life in this way, even though when I look at my life, it should be so much easier than it is. I have a wonderful, loving, supportive husband, I live in the middle of the countryside - an environment I am inspired by every moment of every day, and yet I still find it hard to disengage from work stuff 🙇🏼♀️👩🏼💻
I get this overwhelming sense of ‘I should be doing something!’ when I try to unwind, and/or, I worry that my business will suffer if I take a day off. Sometimes, the dreaded FOMO even rears it’s head. WTF?!? Today, I have so far managed to kick any such feelings that might have arisen well into touch and told them to do one. Take THAT, pesky work anxiety 👊🏻
Not sure if I’m just a weirdo or if other people passionate about their jobs, and who feel a constant sense of responsibility as a business owner, struggle too? Either way, I’m working damn hard to change my ways - I don’t want my children growing old seeing mummy working all of the time. How very boring would that be? The concept of self care in order to be the healthiest, most nourished, productive, loving person you can be is becoming a bigger priority in my life.
Truly hoping you’ve had a chance to enjoy today too 😊#alifelived is #alifeloved
