Yes you? The one who is working very hard on your business and dream. The one who is running around for most of the day multitasking. The one trying to knock items off your “To Do List”. As a busy working mom I have been there and done that! I like to work really hard on my projects and business when I have a chance and that is usually when my children are at school or sleeping. When I get this free time I often feel like I have to go 150%. However this not an ideal situation. You may feel like you are accomplishing a lot. However your body is not winning in this situation. Trust me this can NOT go on forever. Soon you start to burnout. Everything is effected. Our health. Our work. Our Family. This is not a place you want to get to.
FOOD is such an important factor in nourishing ourselves. We can CHOOSE to consciously nourish our body with healthy, vibrant food or we can buckle under the pressure of our busy day and grab a not so healthy fix or skip a meal or two. There are many ways to nourish your body such as taking a bath, getting out into nature, writing in a journal. However since we eat several times a day food is an extremely important way to NOURISH our bodies.
I really want to encourage you to try to look at what is happening in your life? Are you on the go too often and skipping meals? Or maybe you are eating good food, it’s organic and healthy, but you are NOT eating enough? A snack here, an apple there. This is a common problem. How many times have I heard women and men saying that they were busy working away? You were in the creative flow on a project and just could not stop. Or you are just under some crazy pressure to get things done. You forget to eat breakfast and then lunch. By midday you are starving and trying to make up for what you didn’t eat earlier. This is a recipe for DISASTER.
Instead focus on making a conscious effort to NOURISH YOU.
Plan to step away from whatever you are doing and have a meal. Make sure to breathe and relax. When we are stressed out, our digestion is compromised. Instead allow yourself that time to just eat. Choose something healthy and satisfying (don’t worry I will get what to eat in a future post). Eat slowly. Chew your food thoroughly and be grateful for nutrients being provided for your body.
So whatever you are working on this week. Whatever the big project is, just remember that you need to STOP and NOURISH.
