You're not alone– I've been there too and can help.
About 6 years ago, I hit my work-life balance and self-care rock-bottom––I was recovering from an emotionally abusive relationship and trying to figure out my IBS, chronic migraines, and muscle pain.
And if that wasn’t enough, I was also completely BURNT OUT from the stress of working 3 jobs and 14-hr days, navigating living at home with my parents again, juggling time with friends…and trying to date (lol).
Since then, I’ve figured out what makes me feel balanced and ditched the SHOULDs I kept hearing online and from well-meaning friends, finally got one full-time job at a tech company and built my own business to help busy women like you finally find the time and energy to create (and stick with) a sustainable self-care routine.
(Oh, and thanks to figuring out a better balance, I’ve also now been out of my parents’ house and living with my supportive partner of 5 years J ).
Nothing I did over the years worked because I was treating my body, time, and energy like it was an enemy, like something to control that was out of control. It was a "me versus me" scenario.
Once I understood that I could collaborate with my body, time, and energy, everything changed. I learned to speak my body's language – interpret what it was trying to tell me and then implement healthful practices like yoga, meditation, and journaling in totally doable, 25-minute blocks.
Essentially, I figured out how to create a sustainable self-care routine that I could adapt to fit my particular needs, mood, and schedule based on subtle signals I had previously ignored.
I realized I was totally done with drama, and I had finally become a true Dharma Queen instead.
