Last week I did something that I haven't done in probably 8+ years. I went to the beach... alone. I tried to talk myself out of it, all the way to the driver's seat. My mind was full of things that needed to get done - work, laundry, cooking, etc - which is exactly why it was the perfect time to go.
If you, too, are feeling overwhelmed or anxious... here is your permission to check out. Get out your calendar and schedule time for YOU right now, even if it's just minutes with your feet in the grass.
Take your own advice. You know, the advice that you give new families about rest. Resting and taking a break isn't just for new parents. You are worthy of rest *right now.* When you do this, you get to show up differently for yourself, your family and your clients.
Here's your (business) advice of the week: take your scheduled time OFF, then take a pic that represents what you did (on your phone works), and share to social media with a message to your community about the importance of rest. Don't forget to tag me @nichole_joy__ in your 'collective birthworker checkout!" ... I'd love to see how you're resetting for expansion on the other side.
