I sometimes find looking after myself very difficult to prioritise amongst the responsibilities as a professional, wife, mother and daughter.
Sometimes when things get too much my body forces me to rest and I may get ill. When this happens I know it’s time to slow down, and I make sure that I take time off to recuperate properly, taking lots of rest, switching my phone off, hibernating and recharging.
I’m slowly getting better at recognising when things are starting to get too much before crashing now, through being more mindful, and I will start to slow down before becoming unwell.
Currently I’m reading lots of great books about living the best version of yourself, and this has been a great way for me to self-reflect and focus on myself.
I also love going for long walks, being around trees, and being in water whether that’s in a bath, swimming pool or the sea!
