As women, we endure a lot of emotional labor and tend to de-prioritize our needs. When I’m feeling a lack of confidence, I take it as a sign that I need to make myself a priority and do what I love to raise my vibration. Whether that means a long meditation, an aerial yoga class, or a facial, I spend some time doing exactly what I want to do, and I leave my guilt behind.
Alone time is my way to recharge, and once I’ve taken the time to give my mind and body what it needs, I’m a better person for my friends, family, and colleagues. So for all of my mama friends out there, go first. Just like airplane safety videos, you must apply the oxygen mask to yourself first, then you can help others.
