Check in, check out

Life has been chaotic this week. It was coming for me from all angles! I survived though, I’m good like that. lol. No, but in all seriousness I realized why. While, I had a “to do” list not for the faint at heart, I was sure to make time for me EVERY day. Some days this meant getting up at 4:30 AM before work to get a quick lift in at the gym. I’ve had people ask, “I don’t know how you do it?!” My answer, “It’s not always easy, but there’s no greater feeling than to have accomplished a completed workout before most people have even gotten out of bed. PLUS, even if my world falls apart at 9 AM I’m still feeling good from exercising!”. On days I don’t workout I’m sure to take some “me” time in different ways: power naps, a quick trip to Marshall’s or an episode of reality tv fit the bill.

This week I did better than my usual. I MADE time to work for me. I scheduled, yes I have to schedule it like an appointment, time to write and do other things for my blog. Now, I still have a ways to go to manage both but I’m working, with intention, on balance. As crazy as it seems, because I actually am working MORE, it is beneficial to both my full time job and to my blogging. I am able to “check in” to whatever task at hand and “check out” to the rest of the clutter. Why? I know that the time for that stuff will come. How do I know this? Duh, because I’ve scheduled it! lol. With that being said, make sure to check out of all that too. Go get a massage, get you a pretty mani/pedi, or just turn your phone off for an hour. No matter what it is that YOU need, be sure to “Check in (with yourself), so you can check out (with the world)”. Self care is real and very necessary! Now, let’s go master this week!
