You're a living superhero, taking care of your family, kids, boss/clients, and partner. When someone's in need, you're the first one to answer the call. You're naturally empathetic, compassionate, and caring.
However, you often forget to treat yourself with the same sense of compassion. You can hardly remember the last time you took 5 minutes to yourself, except for the time you didn't know what to do with yourself.
There's this underlying fear that your whole world would come crashing down around you if you took a break. It can feel like you're coming last in your life or like you're stuck on a hamster wheel. There's never enough time or energy for you once you've taken care of everyone else.
You're a superstar, but you're tired. Period.

You're imaginative, curious, and always willing to see the best in other people. You enjoy picking up new hobbies and dreaming up the next adventure that you want to embark on.
But, you don't always take the next step. Something, maybe a voice in the back of your head, starts to tell you all the reasons why you shouldn't. You're reminded of things that didn't work out in the past. You wonder if you're worthy or good enough.
You know that deep down, you need to give yourself the love that you willingly give to those around you.
5 Minute Fix: Mood boost aromatherapy combined with self-loving affirmations. Scents to try: grapefruit, peppermint, lemongrass, or cinnamon. It is common for women with self-sabotaging tendencies to struggle with affirmations of ‘I am ____’ due to feeling fake or forced. Instead, try something like, “Even though I make mistakes, I am in the process of making better choices every day” or “I choose to believe I am worth taking care of." For more tips, check your inbox!
