Now for the other big thing rambling around in my head; I have realized that I am way too hard on myself! I had this great conversation yesterday with a mentor of mine who is currently finishing her PhD at Fielding right now and she brought up the concept of balance... of leading a full life or just being busy to feel like you have a full life.
Women are particularly bad at this game as we take on far too much! And then when we let something slide like our health, we blame ourselves and then the cycle repeats! Apparently one of the biggest regrets of female executives is taking on far too much and missing important moments in their lives.
So I have decided that I need to be nicer to myself. Stop beating myself up for missing a workout or not vacuuming the house or deciding to do nothing. I feel like I have a bit more time that is going to be full on but I am also going to schedule more time off in my calendar when I don't have to worry about anything.
Today's Lesson: Be nicer to yourself!!! You ARE awesome!
