When you’re a woman in business, it’s so important that we schedule time for self-care as our number one priority. Especially for those of us who are Empaths or Highly Sensitive People (HSP) and especially those of us who are service providers.
We need to make extreme self-care a lifestyle, not a once-in-a-while thing. We need to learn the value of putting our needs first even if we think it will upset those around us.
Most women are nurturers and nurturers by their very nature tend to put other’s needs before their own. I’ve been guilty of this myself.
But this mindset of putting others before ourselves needs to shift if we want to take our business to the next level. We need to become diligent with how we use our time and energy. We need to schedule in time for self-care.
We need to stop acting like slave-girls and start acting like the Queen CEO of our business. The wisdom of a Queen CEO knows that we cannot serve our clients at the level we are called to serve unless we prioritize extreme self-care.
In shifting this, it may feel selfish at first to choose a relaxing bath over doing the dishes. It may feel selfish to hire someone to run our errands when we can do it ourselves. It may feel selfish to hire an assistant to help us with administrative tasks when we’ve been doing it ourselves.
But a Queen CEO knows that in order to grow, we need to learn to let go.
We need to delegate and enjoy the time it frees up by creating a habit of a luxurious self-care routine that becomes our new normal.
Practicing extreme self-care is how you let go of feeling guilty about self-care.
Otherwise we run the risk of burning out and losing our passion for the work we are meant to do in the world.
